Check Out This Sweet Footage Of Christian Moullec Flying With Migrating Geese

Submitted by: fancylad 8 months ago in Misc Science


Christian Moullec, a 58-year-old microlight pilot, always had a passion for birds. According to the Daily Mail, he first started flying alongside them in 1995, when he tried to migrate them to areas where they would be well protected, in order to stop their numbers from dwindling.

Those initial trips inspired the Birdman to go even further, and for years, he dedicated his life to raising and training orphaned geese while helping other birds whose numbers were declining.

It took him many years to finally fly alongside birds, but when he finally did, he knew he had to share the breathtaking experience with other people. Which is what you see in the video above -- him taking other people up in the air with him on his microlight plane to experience flying in formation with wild geese.

Very cool. Great post. It was interesting to see how perfectly aerodynamic and streamlined the bodies of these birds are while in flight.
