Flying with Sampson.


Sampson the Golden Eagle was stolen from a British zoo, and kept locked in a cupboard for six months. He broke the feathers off his seven-foot wingspan trying to escape. After officials rescued the bird, they sent him to falconer Jonathan Marshall for rehabilitation. After the feathers grew back, Marshall trained Sampson to fly high alongside his microlight aircraft!
"When we are up there in the clouds I talk to him and he calls back and circles around me, it is an awesome and exhilarating experience.

"Flying with birds puts you right into their world, we have formed a very close bond."
