IS THIS THE greatest selfie ever taken?

It shows a pilot at the controls of an F-16 fighter jet, at the moment a Sidewinder air-to-air missile is fired. (Take THAT, Ellen.)

The image is going viral around the world this week – it has already appeared on Gizmodo, Mail Online, and the Huffington Post.

And it turns out the photo is actually a still from a longer (and thus even more awesome) video selfie. It shows the pilot firing the missile, then banking the plane sharply away above the clouds.


Er, guess we’ll just stick to duckface?
