NATURE "Raptor Force" | The Peregrine's Stoop | PBS

Duration: 01:41

The deadly attack maneuver of the peregrine falcon, a rapid corkscrew dive from thousands of feet in the air. From the NATURE premiere of RAPTOR FORCE, airing on PBS Sunday, February 24 2008, at 8 p.m. (check local listings). Tony Award-winning actor Liev Schreiber narrates the film, which looks at raptors' complex anatomy and how it influences military aircraft design, and features stunning in-flight footage from miniature cameras mounted on the predators' bodies.
