Flying over Everest

For the first time ever, a man has flown over Everest on a hang-glider. The story, the myth and the legend of this ancient Himalayan land will form the backdrop to a story that grows in tension as Angelo D’Arrigo approaches the moment of truth. He will encounter winds of over 200 kilometres an hour, unpredictable changes changes of climate, and suddenly find that he cannot turn back.

Angelo will take two splendid raptors with him, Steppe Eagles, now extinct in this region, as part of an attempt to reintroduce them into this area.

A film on the preparation, the tension and extreme risk of this exploit, with exclusive footage of Everest shot from above!
