For those who have watched the Red Arrows display team and wondered what the view is like from the skies - wonder no more.

A three-minute video has been posted online that puts the viewer in the passenger seat of a Hawk T1 during a team practice session over their home at RAF Scampton in Lincolnshire.

The video sees the Red Arrows pilot perform a series of manoeuvres at speeds of up to 450mph alongside his team mates in preparation for the start of the display season.

The backseat footage was filmed by passenger Flight Lieutenant Stian Walker, a visiting flying instructor from RAF Team Valley, using a GoPro.

The Red Arrows are set to fly out to Cyprus on Monday for training ahead of the new display season, which kicks off at the end of May.

This year marks the 50th display season for the team, who recently unveiled a new tailfin design to mark the occasion.

The 2014 display season runs from the end of May to late September, with 85 displays planned in nine different countries.
