The Museum of Flight, in partnership with the UK Government Office in Seattle, hosted the Royal Air Force aerobatic display team, the Red Arrows, at the Museum for their first ever visit to Seattle on Monday, September 23, 2019.

Flying distinctive Hawk T1 jets, the team is made up of pilots, engineers and essential support staff with frontline, operational experience, all showcasing the Best of British.The Red Arrows have performed almost 5,000 times in 57 countries since they were formed in 1965.

The Red Arrows flew to Boeing Field in formation around 1pm - ten planes in two groups of five. They were not flying particularly low when they went over Shoreline but that many jets together was enough to rattle the windows and startle residents.

They were on Day 50 of a tour promoting the Best of British across North America.
