The highest recorded flight captured from a man-made structure has been in news recently. Darshan, an imperial eagle, is giving YouTube viewers a bird’s-eye view of the world’s tallest building. Freedom Conservation, a conservation group founded by falconer Jacques-Olivier Travers that aims to raise awareness of the plight of threatened birds of prey, strapped a camera on the back of the bird and live-streamed its flight from Burj Khalifa in Dubai – the world’s tallest skyscraper.Darshan was outfitted with a Sony Action Cam Mini that only weighed about 0.6 pounds for his steep descent. The camera might be small, but it still equals about 10 percent of the eagle’s weight, the BBC reports.

The video features impressive views of Dubai, as the bird swoops down a staggering 2,722 feet to a waiting Travers on the ground. The video was streamed in real time by BBC News.

“The eagle is a signal that things can change,” Freedom Conservation Director Ronald Menzel told the BBC. “It was once endangered, but after conservation program it is not so endangered.”
