Dear friends and followers welcome back to my channel!
Have you ever wondered why some airplanes get a water salute? I must admit it´s a rare occasion but the tradition is spread out throughout the world, but it´s not the airline industry who started with this salute. It goes way back when ocean liners were setting off on their maiden voyage overseas. Firefighting boats would line up next to the brand new ship and spray water fountains next to it whilst leaving the harbour.
So in the 1990´s, Salt Lake City Airport would start spraying water arches over retiring Delta airline captains after their last landing. And that´s how it all started. But see more in the video!

Thanks for watching, all the best your "Captain" Joe
