American Airlines pilot, Brian Lenzen of Chaska has recently retired after working at American Airlines for 34 years. He's 65 years young and unfortunately, according to KARE 11, pilots are required to retire at that age.

For Brian's last flight he got to choose most of his crew and also where he flew. He chose to fly to Dublin for his last flight. What he didn't know about this flight though is a choir he was flying back from Dublin heard it was his last flight and they asked a flight attendant if they could sing for him.

KARE 11 says "when Lenzen got off the plane, they launched into an Irish blessing." In the video, you can see Brian mopping his eyes with a handkerchief. He told KARE 11, "'I’m walking off the jet bridge and I hear this singing going on, and I’m like, 'What the heck is going on up here?''"

Get the tissues out!
