Designing, building and flying a twenty-metre aluminium falcon beneath a helicopter for the World Cup
We were briefed by M-IS to come up with a jaw-dropping aerial moment for The Dubai World Cup that would feature the culturally significant falcon.
We set about designing, building and flying a twenty-metre aluminium falcon that could magnificently glide over the event. The bird was suspended 30 metres from a helicopter to achieve the effect of seamless flight.
The falcon was majestically lucent as it flew down the final straight of the Meydan racetrack and past the royal box, before banking and soaring high into the sky above the audience.
