Bald eagle lands on 9/11 display in Coon Rapids

Publish date:

An incredible scene unfolded in the north metro Tuesday morning as a bald eagle perched itself atop an aerial ladder that local fire departments had put on display as part of their 9/11 tribute. 

"This eagle just landed on the aerial," says a member of the Andover Fire Department in the video. "Phenomenal." 

The 9/11 tribute from area fire departments utilized two aerial ladders to raise an American Flag above the Hwy. 10 bridge at Main Street in Coon Rapids. 

Tuesday marks the 17-year anniversary of the Sep. 11 terror attacks on the World Trade Center buildings, the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., and the jetliner that crashed in Pennsylvania.
