Everyone is getting in on the mini Go-Pro action-cam act – but this is truly special.
On September 28th 2014, for the first time ever, a white-tailed eagle flew over the streets of Paris, soaring from the very top of the Eiffel Tower to the Trocadero Gardens, to the forearm of its handler, thousands of feet away.
The white-tailed eagle has been extinct in France for over 50 years, and so to celebrate this momentous flight, they decided to use a Sony Action Cam Mini to record the event from a breath-taking point-of-view of the eagle, itself.
The event was a collaboration with non-profit organization FREEDOM, whose objective is to re-introduce the white-tailed eagle into its natural habitat, in the French and Swiss Alps.
