And a bigger question in my mind for this heading is why it was input as a name authority? Surely a ferris wheel would be on the subject side of the division of the world? Actually according to sh2003008910 = British Airways London Eye (London, England), it's an observation wheel, not a ferris wheel. So the BL's heading is a duplicate anyway of an existing subject!
