Dubai World Record Eagle Flight

For many reasons, mostly political but partly ethical, I do not use Google, Facebook, Twitter. They practice corrupt business policies, while targeting conservative websites for censoring, facts repeatedly confirmed by news stories and by my sense that Facebook has taken action to prevent my readers from recommending Behind the Black to their friends.
Thus, I must have your direct support to keep this webpage alive. Not only does the money pay the bills, it gives me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.

An evening pause: Hat tip tdub. As he noted, “The final tuck and dive to its master is breathtaking.”

    The most amazing moment was when the Eagle recognizes its handler and goes into a tuck. From that height, I might have been able to recognize a truck. The eagle could probably see a mouse.

    On an unrelated note. When the changed the name of the world’s tallest building from the Burj Dubai to the Burj Khalifa did anyone else wonder if the people of Dubai were being hopeful?
