Incredible F-16 jet pilot’s selfie

What a selfie from the cockpit of Solo Türk, the Turkish Air Force’s F-16 solo aerobatics display team.

Here’s another interesting self-portrait shot by the Solo Türk of the Turkish Air Force with a GoPro camera (that you can clearly seen attached to the canopy thanks to the reflection in the pilot’s helmet visor) while “turning and burning” (diving towards the ground while releasing flares).

Once again, the shape of the F-16’s bubble canopy helped a lot achieving a cool picture.

H/T to Arda Mevlutoglu for the heads-up.
