Flying with Condors
2005 Documentary
The condor, king of the Andes, has a wingspan of up to 4 meters, making it the biggest bird in the world that can actually take to the air.

The condor is a master of flight, soaring majestically in vast circles high above the snow-covered Andes, 5000 metres above sea level. And now an English woman called Judy Leden, female world champion in hang gliding and paragliding, has embarked on a fascinating yet highly dangerous undertaking. She intends to climb into the air alongside the gigantic birds and gather information about their realm; to this day little is known about the life of the condor.
