CHESTERFIELD, Mo. (KSDK) – A local photographer was able to capture the below photo of military personnel and civilians abandoning what they were doing at the Spirit of St. Louis Airshow Sunday to help catch a massive American flag that fell down.

Karl Lund, a board member for USO of Missouri and Little Patriots Embraced, says the flag did not touch the ground, and that the moment was spontaneous and not choreographed.
