I was watching an old episode of "Airline," and they showed a water cannon salute for a returning pilot. That reminded me of how some airlines, like VX and Skybus, got a water salute when starting new cities.

I don't recall hearing about/seeing anything on Southwest getting one on their first landing into MSP... Does anyone have any info/pics as to whether or not one ever occurred? Thanks in advance!

When you have to breaststroke to your connecting flight...it's a crash!
