A ROGUE shark has been spotted by a New Zealand pilot flying into Christchurch International Airport – cruising at an altitude of several thousand feet above the ground.

A passenger jet was descending and was about 9km from the airport on Boxing Day when the pilot radioed ground control about his unlikely sighting, reports.

It was identified as a remote-controlled, helium-filled shark – which has proved a popular Christmas gift this season.

Designed for indoor use, the $NZ99 ($75) 1.44-metre-long Air Swimmer can be operated by remote control over a range of 15m.
