Transcript of Bald Eagles

Bald Eagles One day sitting at a warf Craig Childes was asked to help unload a cargo plane. In exchange, he got free flights. Being a photgrapher, Childes used this opportunity to take many pictures. Some of the pilots were crazy drunks. One even set the plane of fire. After one particular night of heavy drinking, Childes and a pilot went into the air. During this flight, the pilot noticed an eagle and pointed it out to Childes. The pilot noted all of the eagle's features and abilites. Childes was so amazed by the eagle that he had a sudden urge to open the plane door, jump out, and fly with the eagle. Phylum: Chordata
