Pilot Takes Incredible Selfie While Firing A Missile

The picture was taken by a Royal Danish Air Force pilot while flying his F-16 jet.

The picture, from 2012, shows the moment an AIM-9 Sidewinder missile leaves his aircraft.

The image appears to have been taken by a GoPro camera, seen reflected in the pilot’s helmet.

Apparently the impressive headwear is a Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System – which enables a pilot to fire their weaponry just by pointing their head towards an enemy target.

Beat that Ellen.
