THE DRONE FOOTAGE SURVIVED AFTER AN EAGLE ATTACK

Watch this brief clip and know what it would feel like if you could fly, but then your flying got disrupted by an eagle with places to be. What could possibly be more symbolic of America’s internal handwringing over privacy invasion than an eagle crashing into a drone? Nothing, probably. In any case, this allegorical collision came to life recently, and somehow the footage survived. (So did the eagle!)

Recorded in Australia, this drone footage surfaced recently from YouTuber Melbourne Aerial Video. It begins, as so much of Co.Create’s Some Hero series does, by soaring through the sky. When the eagle comes into frame, though, it’s clear that he or she means business, and will not be deterred.
