A 13-year-old girl was waiting in the car with her 13-year-old friend while her aunt ran an errand in the airport office at New York's Penn Yan Airport last Tuesday. The aunt looked out the window and saw that the two girls were driving the car, and ran outside to try to stop them. The girls apparently panicked, and crashed into a hangar door, which happened to have a $37 million jet sitting right behind it. The car got entangled with a wing, and the girls were trapped. Both suffered minor injuries, but were released after treatment. The jet damage was estimated at $1 million. Luckily, Fox has offered the two teens their own summer reality show, so they should be able to help pay the damages -- no, we're just kidding on the Fox part -- we think.
