Equipped with a camera, ‘Challenger' the Bald Eagle soars into NGR Stadium in Houston during the National Anthem.

The video was created in an effort to educate the public about the importance and beauty of the majestic species, showing magnificent views from an eagle's perspective.

This video was taken at the Texans vs. Bengals "Salute to Service" game at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas on November 23

Challenger is a 25-year-old non-releasable male Bald Eagle cared for by the non-profit American Eagle Foundation.

This majestic bird has become a free-flying educational ambassador for his species, soaring through hundreds of stadiums, arenas, ballrooms, and classrooms across the U.S. since 1991.

He was blown from his nest at 5-weeks of age and rescued by well-meaning people who proceeded to hand-raise him. As a result, he became imprinted for life.
