Many people on the flight were returning from Police Week events in Washington.
Lieutenant David Garey captured the moment in two videos that shows the flight attendants asking the passengers to allow the officers' family to deplane first. The second video shows the families leaving to a standing ovation from the rest of the passengers.
Garey is a lieutenant with the Oklahoma City Police Department. He shared the video on Facebook where they've already been viewed over 2 million times.
