Pilot plays Auburn fight song for clapping fans as plane lands in Phoenix

Yesterday’s spontaneous Auburn pep-rally aboard US Airways Flight 29 was hardly an isolated event.

On another Thursday flight, the pilot actually played “War Eagle” over the plane’s intercom as it began it’s approach to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. He then proceeded to plow into a string of ducks, Chelsey Sullenberger-stlye — a true hero.

The moment was captured by an iPhone owner who shares our appreciation for puns.
