This is pretty cool! The Eagle is fitted with a camera and is released from Burj Khalifa in Dubai. At one point, he answers his handler's signal by going into a stoop and it's awesome!



Darshan flew some 830 meters (2,700 feet), offering a breathtaking view of the commercial capital of the United Arab Emirates. His view, cruising alongside the Burj Khalifa, was viewed live by those on the ground — including his roller-coaster dive onto a man’s arm on the ground.

Absolutely outstanding and unique footage.

I had the idea once to put a go pro on my cat...But I realized I would get 8-12 hours of him sleeping.

They should put a laser beam on its head.

I know. I got a touch of vertigo when he stooped!

sweet vid! I was noticing all the little twitch turns its head makes and thinking how cool it is that birds can process that much information so fast.

That's reserved for sharks.


Seriously, though -- I like how the bird seems to be looking around, as if he's just along for the ride and enjoying the view.

Situational awareness is very important when maneuvering in three dimensions.

Or looking for a tasty furry thing.
