Have you ever wondered what it would be like to soar over the skies like an eagle?

Wonder no more!

Watch this incredible footage of an eagle soaring over the French Alps.

Jacques-Olivier Travers is a falconer who has taught these captive eagles to fly in the wild, in an effort to sensitize the public to their plight, because the white-tailed eagles have disappeared from France's shores. No one expected his techniques to work this well!
