This impressive aerial picture of Lancaster Castle and the surrounding streets was taken from the cockpit of a Eurofighter Typhoon jet.

BAE Systems trials photographer, Chris Ryding, captured this photograph and others from one of the world’s most advanced swing-role combat jets, on Wednesday.

The aircraft – which have a top speed of 1,320mph – regularly head out from BAE at Warton to an area of the Irish Sea known as the ‘supersonic corridor’.

This is a designated area set aside for testing supersonic aircraft.

During this visit the team came back over Lancaster and Morecambe and got snaps of local landmarks.
