The jet is capable of speeds of Mach 1.3 and pushes out 16,000lbs of thrust from each Rolls Royce engine (that's a lot).

This video shows the day/night attack jet flying over Leeds Bradford Airport today in footage provided by Leeds Bradford Airport.

The plane, from RAF Mahram, was flying over Leeds as part of a training excercise in the area.

Earlier today, LBA helped an old lady's lifelong dream come true when she took up residence in a control tower.
Last week, it was announced that the airport is taking on 100 new staff - here's how to apply.
