SIR Chris Hoy swapped his bike for a Royal Air Force Typhoon as he took to the skies above Scotland.

The six-times gold medal-winning cyclist boarded the aircraft during a visit to RAF Leuchars in Fife yesterday.

Sir Chris joined 6 Squadron for the 60-minute flight during a routine training exercise which saw him fly as high as 30,000ft.

He said: “It was absolutely incredible.”
