After Arnold Palmer's ashes were taken for one final flyover at the airport which bears his name before they were spread across Latrobe Country Club, a rainbow appeared and is being dubbed ‘Arnie’s Rainbow’.

A private ceremony was held to celebrate the life of Palmer, who died on Sunday night at the age of 87 due to heart complications.

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette writer Gerry Dulac posted photos on Twitter of the plane that flew above the property and the rainbow that appeared shortly after.

Arnold Palmer’s ashes were spread in the same as his wife Winnie 17 years ago. A public memorial service is scheduled for Tuesday in Latrobe, with Jack Nicklaus among those expected to attend.
