Twins celebrate Memorial Day with flyover

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Twins celebrated Memorial Day with a special pregame ceremony that featured a flyover of two vintage World War II aircraft over Target Field on Monday.

A P-51 Mustang and a P-38 Lightning both flew over the crowd while actor Reed Sigmund sang the National Anthem. The planes were both used in the filming of the upcoming movie Memorial Day.

Fans were also greeted at the gates by actors wearing WWII period uniforms from the movie.

Lt. Col. Ed Zinns served as the honorary flag raiser before Sigmund sang his rendition of the Star Spangled Banner. Zinns is a native of St. Cloud and spent 30 years in the military with the Army Air Corps and U.S. Air Force.
