There wasn’t a dry eye out of the gate K5 at Chicago’s O’hare airport as an American Airlines pilot was taken after his retirement, flight to Dublin, Ireland and with an Irish blessing.

American Airlines Capt. Brian the Lenses, took off his glasses and wiped the tears from his eyes, as if the members of the Pc. St. anthony on the Lake choir sang their rendition of the Irish Blessing, “”the Way,” Rise Up,” in a video posted by the airline in mid-July.

“It was a very special moment,” objectives, is a native of Chaska, Minn., told KARE11. “I’m kind of an emotional guy anyway, so I had a bit of a sentimental thing to realize is that it was made for me.”

For the Lens, because it’s a pilot program, it was a dream job. However, at the age of 65, it was a mandatory retirement, so he decided to take his last flight to Dublin to celebrate it in a pub, with a hand-picked crew.

The choir, which was returning from a tour of Ireland, was asked by the flight attendants to be singing in front of the pilot, which he left on the plane for the final time as a pilot.

“We used to wait at the end of the tunnel, and we were in for him when he got out of the plane,” Laurie Polkus, the director of the choir, said on Facebook. “He announced to the flight that was to be his last, and went by the cabin to say goodbye. His wife was on the flight…it was a very emotional experience.”
