DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, May 20 (UPI) -- Team Black Sheep, a hobbyist group known for stunts with drones, had one fly over the world's tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, and take video.

The Burj Khalifa is 2,722 feet tall and the drone goes right to the top of the spire. Most drones only fly up to about 165 feet, but this one can fly up to two miles.

Team Black sheep does this all over the world and there is an especially good one of New York City.
