The famed UK Royal Air Force Red Arrows are set to perform along the Boston Waterfront around 11am on Monday, Aug. 19. The show will last about 10 minutes, Boston British Consulate-General spokesperson Paolo DiFabio said.
This is the largest North American tour to date for the Red Arrows, which includes performances or flypasts at more than 20 locations across the United States and Canada.
Stretching coast to coast, audiences across America will have the unique opportunity to see the Red Arrows take flight during the team's 11-week deployment, which is aimed at showcasing the UK at its best, and supporting trade, business and defense interests.
It is the first time the Red Arrows have been to both Canada and the United States since 2008. With stops across the continent, in addition to the Canadian stops, the tour comprises a combination of nearly 20 aerobatic displays, several iconic flypasts and 100 separate ground engagement activities – from business receptions led by the UK's Department for International Trade to sessions aimed at inspiring young people.
