A 9-11 tribute by several fire departments in Coon Rapids Minnesota became a truly inspiring moment when a bald eagle decided to fly in and perch atop of an aerial fire truck.

The fire truck was holding an American flag to honor and remember those who lost their lives on 9/11. During the tribute a bald eagle perched at the top of the aerial truck, creating a chill-inducing moment.

The Andover Fire Chief Jerry Streich in a Facebook video shared on the department's Facebook page stated:

Isn't that unbelievable?...Phenomenal…There’s no better symbol to represent America today than a flag but then for an eagle to land on a fire truck holding a flag, I mean, it doesn't get much more symbolic than that…I had to look at it a few times.

What a great moment and I really wish I was there when it occurred, it truly must have been moving.
