Incredible pilot's-eye view pictures show what it is like to fly in the Red Arrows.

The photos where taken from the cockpit of the iconic jets as the squadron trained over the skies of East Yorkshire.

Team photographer SAC Hannah Beevers captured images from the backseat of Red 10's jet - showing her comrades flying in formation.

The shots show the Squadron flying over York Minster, the Humber Bridge and Humberside Airport before heading back to their base at RAF Scampton in Lincolnshire.

The Squadron is renowned for daring displays and brought the whole formation together for the first time this season just three weeks ago.

The Red Arrows begin training for the forthcoming season almost as soon as the previous year has ended.
