The pilots of Instagram: beautiful views from the cockpit, violating rules of the air

This is a very well researched and written piece on all the youTube and Instagram images and videos taken inside commercial flight cockpits which violate not only FAA rules but airline rules as well.

I must say, I’ve enjoyed many that I’ve seen but they’re definitely a no no.

Eagle eye view of Paris

An eagle with a Sony Action Cam (like a GoPro) attached is let go on top of the Eiffel Tower and soars out over Paris looking for his handler in a plaza below. This is quite a spectacular video.

Eagles, hawks, owls and other predator birds are known to be able to spot a very small animal moving from great heights. This eagle finding his/her handler is a great example of that.
