I present a model of a pulsar wind interacting with its associ ated supernova remnant. I will use the model to argue that one can explain the morphology of the pulsar wind nebula insi de N157B, a supernova remnant in the Large Magellanic Cloud, without the need for a bow shock interpretation. The m odel uses a hydrodynamics code which simulates the evolution of a pulsar wind nebula, when the pulsar is moving a t a high velocity (1 000 km/sec) through the expanding supernova remnant.
