If you’ve ever wondered what a real bird’s eye view looks like, this is the closest that it gets.

On March 14, an eagle called Darshan was fitted with a Sony Action Cam Mini to capture a 2,722-foot drop from the tallest building in the world, reports NBC News. Darshan took the dive from the top of Dubai’s Burj Khalifa to his trainer below – a flight which is now the highest recorded bird flight from a man-made structure ever.

“We know that people love these types of videos,” said Ronald Menzel, director of the Freedom Conservation group, whose aim is to raise awareness of endangered birds of prey. “It’s a great way for us to attract the public’s attention to endangered animals and to the fact that humans need to learn how to share their space with these animals.”
