Test pilot instructor shows off Saab Gripen fighter jet

The Swedish aerospace and defence company Saab are trying to sell their Gripen fighter jet.

It is manufactured in a small factory in Sweden and flown in the skies above by test fighter pilots.

Rhys Williams is an instructor at the Empire Test Pilots School.

Just before he took the plane out for the afternoon, he gave BBC News a tour of the plane and explained what it was like to fly it.
