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.
