The USAF Thunderbirds, RAF Red Arrows, F-35 Demo Team and F-22 Demo Team performed a fly over Hudson River, New York near the Statue of Liberty.

The Blue Angels, initially slated to take part, missed this flyover due to operational requirements.

The formation of six F-16s from Thunderbirds, nine Hawk aircraft from Red Arrows, two F-35s and two F-22s performed this historic flyover on 22 Aug, ahead of the New York International Air Show this weekend.

The last join flight between Red Arrows and Thunderbirds was two years ago at Royal International Air Tattoo airshow in Fairford, UK.
