Perhaps one of the most revered symbols of America, a bald eagle swooped in and perched atop a fire truck during a Twin Cities, Minnesota tribute to the heroes, victims and families of September 11.
Firefighters from different departments had been paying tribute on this most solemn occasion when a bald eagle just flew in and rested at the top of the ladder. Andover Fire Chief Jerry Streich posted the video on the department’s Facebook page stating,
“Isn’t that unbelievable? This eagle just landed on the aerial while we’re doing the 9/11 memorial. Phenomenal.”
For the next 45 seconds, the eagle rested and then flew off heading eastward.
