Thanks to the F-16’s bubble canopy, which lacks front frames, “Viper” pilots can take the most stunning selfies among fighter jocks.
Here’s another epic self-portrait. It was taken by a Royal Norwegian Air Force pilot flying with the 332 Skv during an Exercise Cold Response 2014’s mission over Tromso fjord.

The Lockheed Martin F-16 is equipped with a large single-piece bubble canopy which features no forward bow frame. The pilot sits on an elevated 30° inclined ejection seat (to improve G tolerance) that, combined with the bubble canopy, provide what is by far considered the best 360° visibility of any combat plane in the world.
The perfect plane for cool “selfies”.
