Yeah, it would have pretty much aborted the story.

"Once upon a time there was this evil one ring, an all -powerful ring that longed to return to its master. It needed to be destroyed in the fire from which it was wraught. So an eagle took it and flew over the fires f Mt Doom and dropped it in the molten lava. The End."

I think Sauron as the most powerful being in Middle-Earth at the time would have noticed a bunch of flying eagles with his Ring approaching Mount Doom. He would have found a way to have taken them out. If not with the Nazgul with archers from Mordor, his Eye, or I wouldn't put it past him to be able to control the weather in his country and generate a storm to ground the eagles or something! And then it's curtains for Middle-Earth.
