A water salute for Southwest Airlines 40th Anniversary in the RGV celebration at Valley International Airport. 
What is a cannon water salute?
At an airport, typically an even number of vehicles will line up perpendicular on the sides of the taxiway, and the plumes of water will form a series of arches. Symbolically the procession would look similar to a bridal party walking under a wedding arch. Water salutes have been used to mark the retirement of a senior pilot, air traffic controller or the first or last flight of an airline to an airport, or for other notable events.
