HOW’S this for a selfie?
The co-pilot of an F-15 Strike Eagle jet snapped a pic while flying through Snowdonia National Park, where airmen regularly train in the so-called Mach Loop.
Photographer Paul Davidson, 46, took the incredible picture of the fighter jet as it screamed by.
The United States Air Force was performing drills with their F-15 Strike Eagle jets when Paul captured the weapons systems officer taking the selfie.
He said: “I didn’t see the Weapon Systems Officer using the mobile phone at first.
“It wasn’t until I got home and viewed the photo on computer that I saw they were using the handset.”
