Los Angeles-area residents got a chance to see a mini air show as the Royal Air Force Red Arrows aerobatic team continued its tour of California on Wednesday.
The team flew past the famed Hollywood sign about 4:15 p.m. Wednesday and then headed south to the Port of Long Beach to fly over the retired British ocean liner Queen Mary, which is now a tourist attraction and hotel.
On Tuesday, the Red Arrows’ jets flew over San Francisco Bay and the Golden Gate .
This weekend, they’ll join the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds, the Canadian Forces Snowbirds and other performers at the Great Pacific Airshow over the surf at Huntington Beach.
Over the #Mojave Desert, the Red Arrows meet a customised @Virgin_Orbit 747 – Cosmic Girl. It came before an announcement that an RAF pilot’s been selected to join the firm’s small satellite launch programme. Read more: https://t.co/lb7vPGIwhN
