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?
