Angel

So that's how to fly.

Rarely has it been more stunningly revealed than in this film by Willem Hoebink and Sander van der Sar. They used the Flight Artists' high-speed Phantom camera (see article Slow motion films speak volumes) to transform a white dove into ... well, an angel. No other word for it. You can see the whole film, shot at a speed of 1,500 frames per second, on Youtube (search for Willem Hoebink). It's had more than 100,000 hits in two weeks.
