Eagle grabs drone mid-flight and takes off

This is not the first time, we have seen a drone being attacked mid-flight by a bird of prey. In this video that was shared on Twitter, we an eagle grabbing a drone out of the skies. Amazing footage that makes you wonder if an incident like this would also be covered under the new DJI Flyaway Care program? 🤔 🤪

Eagle grabs drone mid-flight and takes off

In this short video that was shared on various social media channels, we see what is believed to be an eagle grabbing a drone out of the skies. The bird of prey simply takes off with the unmanned aircraft.

The video starts out with the drone flying over the ocean along the shoreline until all of a sudden it is attacked by the eagle.

For a small part of the video, you can see the bird’s tail feathers in view, but the best part of later on when you can see the bird’s shadow on the beach. Brilliant!

We do not know what happened to the drone in the end and if the aircraft was ever recovered.
