Video: An eagle eye view of Dubai

Watch as Darshan the imperial eagle circles above Downtown Dubai

Dubai's Burj Khalifa was the centre of attention on Saturday, when an attempt to set a new world record was made by flying an eagle from the top of the world’s tallest building.

A camera was fitted to the eagle, allowing live streaming via several TV channels in addition to special screens in Dubai Mall. The event was staged to highlight the plight of the endangered bird of prey.

Darshan, the eagle, was trained by falconer Jacques-Olivier Travers from a breeding facility in Thonon, France.
