The above video may be one of the coolest things you will see all week. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to soar like an Eagle? Now you can get the visual sensation thanks to some crafty folks with a Sony Action Cam Mini. Somehow they wrangled an Eagle and attached a Sony Action Cam Mini to the majestic missile! The above video is several minutes of that flight.

Please be aware...It is NOT the wrong video. You may have to sit through a long Sony video ad before watching the actual video, but you can fast forward through that part to get to the actual Eagle video sooner. Enjoy!

Majestic.

Although, they didn't really wrangle the bird. Given that it landed on the gloved hand of a (whatever the name for someone that trains birds is) at the end of the video, it's obviously been tamed and trained.

With that said, this is awesome.

Thank you!

LOL By "wrangled", I think it was said more in the context of the actual attempt at keeping this amazing animal calm enough to securely fasten this type of device to it. Tame or not, that had to be quite a task.

The flight was pretty majestic...but what really amazes me is their sight. To locate and find your target from that far away blows me away. forget lasik, i want eagle eye transplants
