On the morning of September 11, 2018, Chris Finlayson, MSP Chief Pilot, donned his Minnesota National Guard dress uniform and warmed up his trumpet. As a member of the 34th Infantry Division “Red Bulls” Band, Finlayson took his position on a balcony overlooking the ticketing area of Minneapolis-St.Paul International Airport.
Flanked by our nation’s colors and airport first responders, Finlayson delivered a beautiful rendition of Taps, a ceremonial tribute song, to a silent airport terminal. The perfectly played tones echoed off the walls, and could be heard throughout the halls of MSP. You can watch the moment here:

Thank you, Chris, for your service and commitment to honoring the lives lost on that fateful day 17 years ago. We honor all who have and continue to answer the call to defend freedom.
