Danish F-16 fighter pilot takes the ultimate selfie

Video Preview

One fighter pilot has taken the ultimate selfie by snapping himself while being photobombed by a missile he has just fired.

The spectacular picture captures the moment the sidewinder roars past him in the background, with its rocket burning brightly, as the Danish top gun flies an F-16 jet at hundreds of miles an hour.

While its nothing new for mavericks to photograph themselves in action, it is far rarer to see weapons being launched at the same time.
The pilot appears to have fired the missile, an AIM-9L/M, using a Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System which enables him launch it simply by pointing his head at targets, according to The Aviationist.

The image has been released by the Royal Danish Air Force.
