DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - A precision flying team from the Royal Air Force in the United Kingdom is visiting north Texas this week as part of a tour across the United States and Canada.

The Red Arrows are holding a series of ground engagements to promote trade and investment between the U.S. and the United Kingdom.

"A key aim of the tour is to inspire people through safe, dynamic and visually-exciting shows. However, we have also planned dozens of ground events, where we hope to meet countless individuals and showcase the importance of science, technology, engineering and maths - the STEM subjects - in our work," said Wing Commander Keith.

The group flew its bright red Hawk T-1 jets to Houston on Wednesday. They do not have any public public displays planned in north Texas, but will have a series of ground displays, business and community meetings while they are here. 

Their tour will also take them to Denver, Portland and Seattle this month.
