In Minnesota in the midst of a 9/11 tribute ceremony, a bald eagle landed on a fire truck and joined the ceremony.
For 9/11 tribute, the Andover Fire Department was using two ladder trucks to fly a huge American flag over Highway 10 in the northern outskirts of Minneapolis. That’s when a bald eagle landed on it Tuesday morning.

As firefighters draped a banner over the overpass reading ‘We will never forget’, the bald eagle perched on the aerial bucket and watched over.
Marveled Fire Chief Jerry Streich took a video of the moment.
‘Isn’t that unbelievable. This eagle just landed on the aerial while we’re doing the 9/11 memorial – phenomenal. We’re all set up here so nobody forgets,’ says Streich.
Nearly 3,000 people died in the attacks of September 11, 2001.
People across the nation paid tributes on Tuesday.
In Shanksville, Pennsylvania, at the crash site of Flight 93, President Donald Trump saluted the hero passengers and crew who tried to stop the hijackers to reach their target in Washington DC.
Thousands of people gathered in lower Manhattan, at the memorial plaza on the site of Ground Zero, where the Twin Towers fell on 9/11 and marked moments of silences at 8:46 am and 9:03 am.
‘It is not a day to give speeches, it is not a day to talk about politics. It’s about the heart,’
‘We need to stand together, that’s the only way we can deal with that kind of pain.’ said Alice Greenwald, director of the 9/11 Memorial Museum.
