If you’ve ever seen a clip from the BBC’s Earthflight, you’ve probably wondered how filmmakers get such amazing footage of flying from the birds’ perspectives. This is an example of just one of their techniques: a radio-controlled Vulturecam.

And here’s another: flying an ultralight with Barnacle Geese over London.

If you haven’t yet seen clips of Earthflight, be sure to check out this jaw dropping one of pelicans soaring over jumping devil rays. Or watch more flying vids in our archives.
