The Daily Wire reports:

In a video that has amassed nearly 3 million views in less than 24 hours, Fire Chief Jerry Streich of Andover, Minnesota shows the “unbelievable” moment when a bald eagle landed on his fire station’s tribute to memorialize 9/11.

The eagle perched atop one of the two aerial trucks Andover firefighters were using to hang a massive American flag — and right around the time of the national moment of silence. Chief Streich caught the “phenomenal” moment on camera and shared it on Facebook.

“Look what landed on top of the aerial on 9/11,” Streich says in the video. “Isn’t that unbelievable? This eagle just landed on the aerial while we were doing the 9/11 memorial. Phenomenal.”

The hair-raising moment occurred while the Andover Fire Department – along with other departments – held a tribute alongside Highway 10 honoring the victims of 9/11.
