Dubai is taking flight to land yet another Guinness World Record, on the wings of an eagle no less.
On March 14, Freedom Conservation will attempt to set a new world record by flying an eagle, equipped with a camera, from the top of the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa.
The organisers of the world attempt state they will strap on a Sony ActionCam Mini camera onto the bird of prey, which will go on to record a bird’s eye perspective of the landscape, capturing footage that will be broadcasted to the world.
If achieved, the white-tailed eagle’s flight from the top of Burj Khalifa, which stands at a height of 829.8 metres or 2,722 feet, will represent a world first as the highest recorded bird flight from a man-made structure. More info and photos
