One of the world’s premier aerobatic teams, Britain’s famous Red Arrows, displayed their majesty on Kuwait sky near Marina Crescent in Salmiya Tuesday evening.

The team, with its nine distinctive red jets, performed a series of precision formations and dynamic loops and rolls paint the Kuwait sky red, white and blue in awesome aerial display.

Their impressive stunts included rolls, flying in formation, and making patterns out of their smoke trails in the shape of a heart with an arrow piercing through it.

Thousands of people gathered along the Marina Crescent to watch the spectacle, their heads tipped back, oohing and aahing in unison.

Acknowledged as one of the world’s premier aerobatic teams, the Red Arrows is an iconic British brand and has taken part in major events internationally. Officially known as the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, the Red Arrows represent the United Kingdom and have been thrilling crowds, at home and overseas, since the 1960s.

The Team helped signal the start of last year’s Olympic Games in London with a formation flypast of the stadium and Opening Ceremony.
