Royal Netherlands Air Force F-16 demo team’s inverted selfie

Once again a cool selfie taken from the cockpit of an F-16 Fighting Falcon.

The latest example of self-portrait photo most probably taken with a GoPro camera from the cockpit of an F-16 comes from the Royal Netherlands Air Force: a cool series of “selfies” was posted by the Dutch Demo team on their Facebook page.

The shots, from various points of view, were taken during last week’s display practice at Gilze-Rijen airbase.
