Razorback Basketball Team Receives 'Water Salute' Upon Landing at Northwest Arkansas National Airport

The Razorback Basketball Team received a water salute upon landing at the Northwest Arkansas National Airport on March 30, following their entrance into – and exit from – the NCAA Final 8.

Footage posted by the airport shows the aircraft passing an arc of water, provided by two water cannon. “Our men’s Razorback Basketball team deserved a proper welcome home today!” wrote the Northwest Arkansas National Airport on the post. “So proud of this team and Coach Musselman for getting to the Elite Eight!”

The Razorbacks had entered the NCAA Final Eight with their win over Oral Roberts University on March 27, but were knocked out by Baylor on March 29., ending their short run. Credit: XNA Northwest Arkansas National Airport via Storyful
