There was a patriotic display of red, white and blue over the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs this morning. But it wasn't the one we are used to.

The Patrouille de France, the precision aerobatic demonstration team of the French Air Force, flew the red white and blue of the French flag during a trip across the United States.

Ten of its aircraft are commemorating the 100th anniversary of the US entry into World War One.

They're also on a mission to underscore France's solid relationship with our country.

Colorado Springs was the 11th stop of their US trip.
