The Red Arrows, a Royal Air Force aerobatic team, will fly above the Queen Mary in Long Beach and the Hollywood sign in Los Angeles en route to an air show in San Diego this weekend, the United Kingdom consulate said in a tweet.
The flyover in Long Beach is expected to happen around 4 p.m. today, Oct. 2.
Long Beach-based Virgin Orbit also said in a statement the Royal Air Force is holding a joint event with the company at the Queen Mary today, one stop on the Red Arrows’ tour across the United States. The rocket company is also expected to make an announcement about the “next stage of development between the US and the UK’s space operations,” the statement said.
