Not all drone excursions end up with pretty pictures. Just ask Seattle.

This one in 2014 did.

This one, which took place just the other day -- not so much.

Drone collides with Seattle Ferris Wheel, busts through plastic table.  (Ars Technica, 11/11/2015)
"There were no injuries. There was no damage to the wheel. We don’t know who owned the drone or who operated it. We collected it and have put the recovered drone into evidence." 
The police spokesman noted that absent a witness or errant pilot coming forward, it will be nearly impossible to ascertain who that person is.
