Honoring fallen soldier @BWI

New Arrival

Last week while flying out of my home airport BWI, I saw this event take place. I had assumed the Captain of that flight was retiring as this water canon salute would be fairly normal. However, I was informed by the Captain on my flight that the aircraft in my photo was carrying the remains and family of a fallen soldier. Well done BWI and SW. RIP.
