The Red Arrows have released an utterly insane video showing what it's like to sit in the cockpit during one of their incredible displays.

The three-minute video puts the viewer in the passenger seat of a Hawk T1 during a team practice session over their home at RAF Scampton in Lincolnshire.

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.
