Deadlock dive

There are only a few things more dangerous than the dive of a Falcon. The Peregrine Falcon is the fastest bird attaining maximum dive speeds of up to 180mph ie. 288 kph Рthe speed of an average sportscar.

A Falcon flys at high elevation. It has highly advanced eyes that can spot a prey from such heights. After it has locked on to a potential prey, it dives towards it from a great height. During the dive, it huddles up its wings closer to its body. This helps decrease the force of the resisting air. As it is falling, its velocity keeps on increasing up to the point where it cannot go any faster. This situation is more dangerous than it seems thrilling.

Any slight and sudden movement can send the Falcon spiraling out of control. And if anything interrupts the dive, at that speed the Falcon cannot open its wings to avoid the obstacle. This is because opening of the wings at that speed will cause the tremendous pressure of air to rupture the wings. The Falcon must slow down before he can open his wings again.

So the Falcon is falling towards the ground at a great speed. Any movement can send it out of control and yet if it doesn’t make fast enough movements, it will miss its mark or worse yet, suffer a fatal impact. This is for me the most dangerous Deadlock.
