Photo of the day: Sidewinder selfie

RDAF-F-16

An F-16 fighter pilot snapped the ultimate selfie and captured the moment an air-to-air Sidewinder missile was fired.

The Royal Danish Air Force pilot sports the very high-tech Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System (JHMCS), which gives pilots a high degree of situational awareness and allows them to target enemy craft with a simple nod of the head, The Aviationist reports.

This may be one of the coolest selfies ever.
