F-16 Fighter Jet Pilot Takes Amazing Selfies Up In The Air

Taking the first class seats and flying of to some exotic place is what we all desire, especially after having a rough day at work. For some people it’s a dream that awaits to become true, while for others it’s a piece of cake. The only thing you need is to catch a plane and take off in an unknown direction. Of course it’s a lot easier when you have your own plane, but unfortunately most of us don’t have that opportunity. That’s not the case with this navy pilot. Not every job has to be boring and this guy seems to know that. He has chosen the right one for him. Every day he gets into his F-16 fighter jet, takes off and raises up into the high altitudes. Sure, not having a proof of visiting the beautiful blue sky is a problem. So he came up with this solution - to take selfies up in the air. This “Fighting Falcon” and his fellow companions get to the airbase airport, prepare themselves and then go straight up in the sky. It is where the party takes place. Randomly they get the chance to visit so many beautiful places, where so much greenery can be seen beneath their feet, so much interesting scenery it’s a shame not to document it. Not only he gets shots of himself, but also of his flying partners fooling around and performing their acrobatic mid-air. As you watch the video, you start wondering whether you have chosen the right job for you, or it still may not be too late for your to try and change it. Being a photographer and taking photos in the middle of nowhere seems like an interesting idea.

Paraglider gets stuck in telephone wires

In life, you have the thrill seekers, and you have the non-thrill seekers. Thrill seekers partake in activities such as sky-diving, bungee jumping, and paragliding. Well this thrill seeker definitely didn't have the best of days. While paragliding, she cut the landing a little close, and ended up getting caught in some telephone wires. It's probably safe to assume that she was suspended up in those wires for quite a while before getting freed. It seems like this para-glider wasn't in poor spirits, casually "hanging out" in the telephone wires. Who knows how long it took to get her down! Sometimes it's just the way things go, and you need to deal with the cards you are dealt. Could it have been the wind, or what about human error? Who knows. This extreme sports enthusiast is not having a good day. We don't know how she ended up in these telephone wires, but we are certain she was stuck there for a while! Check out this paragliding fail!

Watch these daredevils jump off a gigantic antenna (350 meters) in the middle of nowhere. Then witness them soar inches above a mountain range in wild Switzerland. Remember that proximity flying in tracking gear leaves even less of a margin for error. If you get too deep, you don't have wings to help you get out. Extreme!

Most of us would not dare to conduct these types of extreme sports with zero visibility, so we are thankful that this daredevil does it for us! Watch what happens when he skis and paraglides right into a massive abyss of fog above the Stubaital alpine valley in Austria. Totally worth it!
