When the Eagle Flies is the seventh studio album released by English rock band Trafficin It was the final album released by the band until their reunion Far from Home. The album featured Jim Capaldi on drumskeyboards and vocals; Rosko Gee on bass guitar ; Steve Winwood on guitar, keyboards, and vocals; and Chris Wood on flute and saxophone. Percussionist Rebop Kwaku Baah was fired prior to the album's completion, but his contributions are heard on two of its tracks.
The album uses a broader variety of keyboard instruments than previous Traffic albums, adding Moog to their repertoire. When Various - Bubble Gum Music Eagle Flies was the band's fourth consecutive studio album to reach the American Top Ten  and have gold album status.
It was far less successful in the United Kingdom, where it entered the charts at number Postoji Nešto - Majke - Najveci Hitovi 2 only to drop off the following Graveyard People - Traffic - When The Eagle Flies.
Rolling Stone called the album uneven, saying that its bleak tone works superbly on "Graveyard People" and "Walking in the Wind", but elsewhere it often "turns anemic as a result of either a poorly conceived arrangement or inadequate production.
