Fighter Jet Pilot Flies Alongside Boeing 787, Snaps Epic Selfies

by at .  Updated at . Comments

In a word: WHOA!

A fighter Dutch F-16 pilot has gone ahead and put the record-breaking Oscars selfie to shame, posting multiple self-portraits of himself mid-air.

Helming one of two armed aircrafts that flew alongside the Boeing 787-8 during a recent demo flight, this unnamed individual is a member of the Royal Netherlands Airforce.

And he used something called the Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System to take photos of himself at the plane’s controls, giving us an amazing view of life in the air.

Talk about taking the art of the selfie to unprecedented new heights, eh? Eh?!?!?

Sorry. Nevermind. Just click through the cool shots now:

Lighten up, layzurguy. There are no stop signs, traffic lights, intersections or police to enforce any rule.

I can't text and drive, but its perfectly OK to take a selfie while flying a Billion Dollar plane that we, US Citizens, pay for. Interesting. Reminds me of the Polaroid Goose took in 'Top Gun'

Did you miss the "Dutch pilot" part?

Even if it was an American airplane, what, in all seriousness, is the problem with taking a selfie as long as it's done safely? Have you ever heard of autopilot? Do you realize that air traffic controllers are monitoring things using radar? Did you know you're an idiotic gas bag?

I wonder if you read the article? The first sentence states Dutch F-16. Not your tax dollars.

An F-16 does not cost a billion dollars and to your dismay it is a Dutch pilot not an American. He has the bigger guns, you go tell him he can't.

The plural of aircraft is aircraft, not aircrafts.

I care. It's useful to know aircraft are like sheep. And yes, we're grading these people. Today a C-. No, make that a D+.

The whole first sentence (the lede) is messed up. Shouldn't it be "A Dutch F-16 fighter pilot" instead of "A fighter Dutch F-16 pilot?" Then, that whole "has gone ahead and" is completely unnecessary. Obviously not a journalist or a writer.

"A fighter Dutch F-16 pilot" and it should be A Dutch F-16 fighter pilot.

Or maybe this is an article from a Dutch magazine, seeing that there is nothing worth while reporting in the US.

And it's Air Force, not Airforce.

That's why these people write for The Hollywood Gossip instead of a quality newspaper like My Weekly Reader.
