Spectacular Sight: British Royal Air Force Flies Over Boston Harbor

The Red Arrows flew over Boston Harbor at 11:20 a.m. on Monday

Bostonians caught a glimpse of the United Kingdom's famed Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team in the Boston sky, Monday. 

The English Red Arrows flew in formation over Boston Harbor Monday morning, creating a spectacular sight. The visit was part of a tour of the United States.

The jets released blue, red and white smoke trails over the harbor — the color of the British flag, the Union Jack, as well as the American flag.

The jets arrived from Chicago at New York Stewart International Airport on Sunday night ahead of their visit to Boston.
