Wanna Know What Flight is Really Like?

Eagle Flight

Following up on our wingfic discussion yesterday, today I’ve got a really cool video for you:

The bird’s-eye view was recorded when Darshan the eagle flew from the top of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, swooping 2,722 feet down to his trainer on the ground. It was the highest recorded bird flight from a man-made structure ever, and was broadcast live on BBC News.

Darshan was equipped with a tiny Sony Action Cam Mini for his big expedition. The flight was organized by the Freedom Conservation group to raise awareness for endangered birds of prey and encourage conservation; in the past, the group has recorded eagles taking off from landmarks across Europe, including the Eiffel Tower in Paris and St. Paul’s Cathedral in London.
