The first flight from Sofia to Ekaterinburg flew under a rainbow

Taken from Sofia airport's website. I was looking for news about flight cancellations (why do you have to strike all the time France? Really, you can't work until 62?) when I found this beauty of an article.
The first flight from Sofia to Ekaterinburg flew under a rainbow

The first flight of the Ural Airlines, which took off today at Sofia’s Terminal 2 to Ekaterinburg, flew under a rainbow. The water salute spurts in its honour scattered in the sunny sky above Sofia Airport and shaped a beautiful rainbow.

The inauguration ceremony of the new direct route was attended by Mr. Alexey Fomin - Ural Airlines’ Deputy General Director, Mr. Andreya Andreev - the Airline’s Representative for Bulgaria, Mr. Dimitar Bogdanov - Chairman of Sofia Airport’s Board of Directors and Mr. Nikolay Kabakchiev - Sofia Airport’s Chief Operations Officer.

Mr. Alexey Fomin presented the operations of Sofia Airport’s new business partner and expressed his satisfaction that the joint efforts of both countries had yielded an excellent result, i.e. in addition to Bourgas and Varna, the Ural Airlines will operate to and from Sofia every Friday all the year round. Mr. Dimitar Bogdanov presented a symbolic gift and wished a successful and beneficial collaboration.

With a bouquet of fresh fruits, the Bulgarian side extended its congratulations to the crew of Airbus A320, which will fly on the new route. All passengers and journalists were also given souvenirs of the event and had a piece of the delicious ceremonial cake.

I love how the rainbow was actually just made from those trucks. The water spurt salutes? Is that how we salute planes?
