Falcon vs car

One of the fastest birds of prey in the ultimate test of speed

The gyrfalcon is the world’s fastest bird in level flight with an average speed of 50-68 mph (80-109 kph). These powerful birds may initially be underestimated, but their strength becomes evident after a few seconds in the air.

BBC Earth Unplugged put this undeniable speed to the test against a sports car.
