Does it get any more American than this?

An American Bald Eagle landed on an Andover Fire Department's firetruck crane during a 9/11 tribute held Tuesday morning.

In a Facebook Live video posted to the Andover Fire Department's Facebook page, Fire Chief Jerry Streich says,

Look what landed on top of the aerial on 9/11."

He zooms in the camera to reveal the eagle perched atop the aerial basket.

Isn't that unbelievable?"

The eagle sits regally over the Highway 10 memorial in Coon Rapids for a few seconds more before flying off.

The video watches it leave as Chief Streich simply concludes, "Have a good day, everybody."

Within five hours of posting, the video had already gone viral with 363,000 views and 21,000 shares.
