Whats making this celebration more special aside from the sumptuous buffet served to the passengers, is that it is the first time for most of us to see the Water Canon Salute. To quote Ms. Reyani Romano - the Area Head of Visayas Sales, "Water Canon Salute is a tradition for the maiden flight, it has to be there. The rationale about that is it signifies blessing of the first flight."

We were also introduced to the father and son pilots namely: Captain Luisito Jose and First Officer Gabriel Jose. People were fascinated to know how this father and son manage to work together on the same flight. Passengers and guests even requested to have their picture taken with the Joses.
