and, how will sauron move troops that quickly? three eagles flying into mordor - why would he notice them? he doesnt even notice the two hobbits, and he's had two more decades to build up his forces.
Why do older radar stations easy pick out a F-16 at 25K, but miss the F-111 flying a 200 down a valley? Simple, ground clutter. It's far easier to look around the horizon then it is to pick up a couple people down on the ground.
fly in, land on the volcano, and someone walks in and throws the ring in. preferably 3 someones, so they can keep an eye on each other.
Might work, but then again the Eagles might say fuck it, drop you to your death and go steal some sheep like they always have. Heck, how do we even reach the Eagles to ask them for help?
