Blue Angels Pilot takes Epic Selfie (with phone)

U.S. Navy Blue Angels pilot took a cool self-portrait above the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.

The one taken by Lt. Commander Nate Barton, who flies the left-wing position with the U.S. Navy’s Blue Angels demo team is a real “selfie”: it is not a screenshot taken by a GoPro camera, like the (stunning) ones taken by other pilots recently, but a photo shot with a phone from the cockpit of an F/A-18 Hornet!

Barton, Blue Angel Three, took the image and posted the following tweet on Twitter:

“#BlueAngels are ready to fire it up over @NavalAcademy #upsidedown!”.

The Blue Angels will perform a graduation flyover above the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, on May 23.
