As President-elect Donald Trump was leaving New York’s LaGuardia Airport (LGA) this morning, his Boeing 757 was met with a little water. The aircraft was greeted with a water cannon salute by two onlooking firetrucks as it taxied to the runway. You can watch the entire water cannon salute below.

After winning the presidential election on Tuesday, Trump was flying off to Washington, D.C. to meet with President Obama at the White House. Regardless of political beliefs, water cannon salutes are always fun to watch for any AvGeek — especially if you happen to be onboard the aircraft receiving the honor.

Have you experienced a water cannon salute from inside a plane?
