VIDEO - A remarkable sight was recorded by a Twin Cities fire department on Tuesday as the nation marked the 17th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. In a viral video posted by the Andover Fire Department, a bald eagle landed at the top of an aerial fire truck’s extended ladder and basket as firefighters observed the anniversary at the Main Street overpass at U.S. 10. Fire Chief Jerry Streich used Facebook Live to broadcast the eagle sitting atop the ladder truck on Tuesday morning. By late evening, the video had been viewed more than 2 million times. “Look what landed on top of the aerial on 9/11. Isn’t that unbelievable?” Streich said as he narrated the scene.
