Wannabe fighter pilots can get a feel of taking to the skies in a fighter jet by boarding a simulator at the Science Museum in London.

The footage for the six-minute ride has been filmed on board an RAF Typhoon jet that reveals exactly what it is like to sit onboard a supersonic fighter plane.

The pilot is shown flipping upside down as he soars across Wales and Lake District between 250ft and 40,000ft.

Both the film and the simulator were produced and installed by Metropolis Entertainment which specialises in such projects.

The backseat trip was filmed by Metropolis Entertainment, which owns the simulator.

The jet in the video is piloted by Flight Lieutenant Jamie Norris, who also gives a brief introduction at the start of the simulation.

The two-seater Typhoon multirole jet fighter featured in the video belongs to the 29 Squadron of the Royal Air Force at Coningsby.

The Typhoon jet has a twin-engine and canard-delta wing. It was designed and manufactured by BAE Systems, Airbus Group and Alenia Aermacchi.
