    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.

    Due to a slight air traffic control delay, the Red Arrows flew over Boston Harbor around 11:20 a.m., 20 minutes later than expected. 

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