An eagle with a small camera on its back has
flown from the top of the world s tallest building,
the Burj Khalifa skyscraper in Dubai.
Video from the imperial eagle, Darshan, was live-
streamed as it swooped 829.8 metres to its trainer
on the ground.
The organisers, Freedom Conservation, claim it is
the highest-ever recorded bird flight from a man-
made structure. The event was staged to highlight
the plight of the endangered bird of prey. Although
the camera weighed only 300g, that still equates to
10 per cent of the bird s weight.
Darshan has been trained by falconer Jacques-
