VIDEO: Amazing footage from the back of an eagle in the Alps
EVER wondered what it would be like to fly on the back of an Eagle.
Gandalf found out in Lord of the Rings.
And now you can too, thanks to this brilliant footage shot over the Mer de Glace glacier in the Alps and the Montenvers Railway on the northern slopes of the Mont Blanc massif.
A small camera has been strapped to the back of the eagle offering incredibly sharp and stable footage as the bird glides over the ground and hovers above huge, deep valleys.
