Action Cam Strapped to an Eagle Flying Over Dubai Gives You a Unique Look of the City

Dubai is no stranger to doing things over the top.

Well recently they strapped a Sony Action Cam to the back of anĀ eagle, and sent it flying over Dubai and the Burj Al Arab seven star hotel.

The flight was done by an eagle named Darshan, a threatened species rehabilitated by global conservation programs.

Watch as it soars around the Burj Al Arab and the city before diving down at 200km/hr towards the falconer on the hotel’s helipad.


Below is footage of the same bird flying down from the top of the Burj Khalifa, setting the world record for “highest recorded bird flight from a man-made structure” courtesy of the Wall Street Journal:
