Red Arrows fly by
Bright-red airplanes flew through the sky Tuesday afternoon in Iqlauit, thrilling those who looked up to watch them.
The Birtish Royal Air Force aerobatic team, the Red Arrows, did a formation fly-by before landing at Iqaluit’s airport on the way to Toronto for an air show.
The Red Arrows, 11 hawk jet trainers and a support aircraft, travelled with an anti-submarine maritime surveillance plane called a British Nimrod. It was their first visit to Iqaluit.
When the planes, with their flashing red lights, left the city Wednesday morning, they flew over the bay in groups of three before disappearing over the horizon.
