Flying fish keeps on flying

A television crew has captured some remarkable footage of a flying fish off the coast of Japan.

The creature spends 45 seconds in flight: some believe it could be one of the longest recorded flights by this acrobatic species.

The fish was able to stay aloft by occasionally beating the surface of the water with its tail fin.
