An incredible moment played out at Dallas International Airport Thursday morning.

An entire terminal paused as the remains of a Vietnam Veteran were brought back home.

A reporter from Canada's Global News happened to be at the airport and documented the patriotic moment.

"Our incoming plane is carrying the remains of an American pilot shot down over Vietnam in 1967," Jackson Proskow wrote. " His remains were only recently recovered and identified and brought back to the US."

Proskow elaborated further: "When Captain Knight left from this very airport in 1967 to fight in Vietnam his five-year-old son came to the airport and waved goodbye. It was the last time he would ever see his father alive."

"Today the pilot bringing Captain Knight back to Dallas is his son," Proskow said as the entire terminal had gathered to watch the arrival.
