PHOTOS: Red Arrows take to the sky in Doha

For nearly half an hour this afternoon, Qatar residents looked to the sky to watch a thundering air show performance by the Red Arrows.

The British aerobatic group, comprised of nine British Royal Air Force pilots, appeared to wow crowds with daring maneuvers, and were trailed by red, white and blue plumes of smoke.

On Twitter, reaction ranged from delight, to confusion, to patient boredom:

Did you catch the show? Thoughts?
