The Royal Air Force aerobatic team, the Red Arrows, will take to the skies over Boston Harbor on Monday, August 19 around 11 a.m. to perform an aerial show as part of an eleven-week tour to 25 American cities.

The jets will take off from the north and fly down over Boston Harbor toward Spectacle Island, landing at Logan Airport. The whole performance is expected to last about 10 minutes. Recommended viewing locations include the Charlestown Navy Yard, New England Aquarium, Fan Pier and Castle Island. See a map of the Red Arrows’ flight path below.

This will be the Red Arrows biggest-ever North American tour. They will be hosting events to promote STEM education (science, technology, engineering and math), as well as promoting British culture and supporting UK trade, business and defense. Follow along with their tour through this weekly podcast on BBC Radio Lincolnshire.

If you’re snapping photos of the Red Arrows to share on social media, be sure to tag #RedArrowsTour. A contest is being held in which the team will choose the best photos to win Red Arrows merchandise and other prizes.

  1. I met my company 15 minutes early at Battery Wharf, being sure to get a view of the Red Arrow aerobatic team of the Royal Air Force, as announced to occur between 11 and noon today. We waited. What did fly by was an osprey, with a prized fish in its talons, two Monarch butterflies on their flight paths towards Mexico, along with the always air-worthy gulls and cormorants over Boston Harbor.. No complaints about those INTRODUCTIONS to the promised event, but either those Royal jets whizzed by too fast to be seen, or heard, or, the Brits didn’t show up for the party.

    • When I saw the flight route, I was curious. The route puts them right in the path of Logan traffic and I had to wonder whether they would put a hold on incoming and outbound traffic. Maybe they meant Martha’s Vineyard to perform for the beautiful people.
