The Red Arrows have returned home to RAF Scampton after their biggest-ever tour of North America.

Spectators in more than 20 cities across the United States and Canada were treated to displays and flypasts by the team. 

Locations included New York, Toronto and Los Angeles, as well as a visit of the iconic 'Top Gun' Miramar Air Base.

The team's final display was in front of three million people at the Great Pacific Airshow on Huntington Beach, California.

With numerous shows during the 11-week tour, the Red Arrows also had the chance to reach new audiences.

The tour set out to promote Britain - in particular, the opportunities for trade, industry and tourism, as well as the special relationship between the United Kingdom, Canada and the United States.

Last year, trade and investment between the UK, Canada, and the US totaled more $260 billion dollars.
