Hotshot flying formations commemorate D-Day

PORTSMOUTH, U.K. (NBC/APTN) — The people around Portsmouth, England, got a special treat.

Britain’s Royal Air Force Red Arrows flight team put on a spectacular aerobatic show as part of the D-Day anniversary.

People were treated to some hotshot flying, including starburst formations and a heart that even had an arrow piercing it.

On June 6, 1944, a force of about 150,000 American, British, Canadian, French and Polish troops landed in Normandy to retake Europe from Nazi Germany.
