Why do planes get water salutes?

A friend recently retired from being a Pilot (Captain) for a major airline.

On his last flight, a water salute was given at the airport at which he landed.

Water salute?  What is that? you ask.

And why is it done?

Well As noted on google: 

The "Water Salute – is a Touching Airport Tradition which honors military veterans, foreign dignitaries, new or ending airline service, retiring pilots, and more.   These Salutes typically involve two firefighting rigs spraying arcs of water over an arriving or departing flight. It is a sign of respect, honour and gratitude"

For more information about this and to see one in action
