I did a Delta station opening at Ponta Delgada, Azores last year and the two fire trucks turned up.... The plan was to have a red dyed stream one side and a blue dyed stream the other, which would have been fairly self-explanatory. Sadly, one fire truck's cannon didn't work so we had a lot of questions as to why a truck was hosing our aircraft down with red fire retardant foam. It didn't look great to be honest.

I want to be on the plane welcomed with salute now. That is cool. However, I've already experienced the plane to be "washed" with special chemicals prior to flying during the cold winter (-30C). That happened after all passengers were aboard and I took about 30 minutes before we actually came to the runway.

there is another reason for the water salute, I cant speak for other airports but here at CHS when an Honor Flight returns they give them a water salute, as well as the remains of service members being brought home.

Edmontonian here! Never knew this happened not even an hour away from me, but good job on the pronunciation as well! Many people put the strain on the wrong part of the word, so it comes out sounding weird, but you aced the pronunciation. Fun fact, I flew on KLM I'm pretty sure the same sort of time as the inaugural flight! Anyways, love your videos, keep making them :)

OK Story time: I used to manage a fleet for a SAR unit (ground vehicles, not the planes) and once upon a time we had had a firetruck, but that was during the Cold War and many of our potential missions would have (and, well, technically still are) required to be carried out in a nuclear environment. The firetruck was so that we could rinse fallout off our own planes, and not have to tie up additional resources which no doubt would have had much more pressing things to tend to including standing alert as we operated from a military airfield. So I see a military aircraft being rinsed off I naturally assume it's a drill for operating in a nuclear environment, not a big car-wash! Ah!

I more interest in JFK ATC radio contact when it comes to an Chinese pilots trying to speak proper English.Found it on random videos that I selected on my YT home page and cannot stop laughing.Sorry, I'm a Chinese but I really couldn't stop laughing at it.Even my 4 year old niece who learn English in just 1 year could speak better English rather than them P.S. Please do video about why Japanese ground crew bows at departing aircraft's.Everytime I'm leaving Japan,when the sun is still up I would give my Business Class seat for a back seat just to watch those people waving hands or flag sometimes.How cute to see!

I was leaving from Frankfurt Joe. It was early morning in January and very cold maybe you've experienced this. At the end of the runway just before take off the plane got showered by 2 trucks with anti freeze. I think it should be called a shower of embarkation. Unless it actually has a name, in which case change it.

That sounds like a standard de-icing stop. If the plane has ice on the wings it could become unsafe to fly, so they douse the wings with antifreeze before takeoff to remove the ice.

If this is a dumb question, remember, I'm a chimp. Why don't airlines/manufacturers put titanium screens or some other kind of blocking device in jet engines to prevent birds from being sucked in whole? I realize the forces are tremendous but surely there must be some sort of way to, if not keep the birds out, at least minimize the damage they do without hampering engine performance. No? Thanks for reading this, your videos are great.

Harmoon Wood, i would assume its because the engines suck in soo much air, so to have a screen on the engines it would need alot of reinforcments to preven it from getting sucked inside the engine. And with all that reinforcment you lose air flow and reduced air volume going inside the engine. Dont know for sure but i would think thats why.
