That is a tradition for the last flight when a flight crew member is retiring.

Citation is right, but on this occasion, I believe it was to celebrate 70years of service by UA at SJC.

UA ship 9901, a B737, received a water cannon salute at C-17 in ORD 2 days ago. In this case it was because one of our fellow ramp rats passed away and he was being flown home to CID on this flight. Quite an impressive sight.
