The world-famous Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team flew over London today to help kick off the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Summer Olympic Games.
This morning, they had a flypast over Edinburgh Castle as well.
And over the Dorset coast this afternoon.
Beautiful! Those lucky enough to be at the Olympic Park, or the near vicinity, describe the sights and post pictures.

The Red Arrows are approaching the stadium, flying in formation and leaving a trail of red,white and blue over the London skyline.—

Lucky enough to be in the Olympic stadium. Just seen Red Arrows fly overhead. Feeling like I've just become 40 years younger—

This guy tries to make the best out of being unable to see the awesome formation.
Red Arrows flying right over our house.
I'm guessing two of the Red Arrows had lights off in tribute to their two lost crew members last year. If so, lovely thought—

Indeed. Twitter users share more incredible photos.
What a way to let the games begin!
