Anyone can take a selfie, but very few people can claim to have taken one from the inside of an F/A-18 Hornet. Lt. Commander Nate Barton of the U.S. Navy’s Blue Angels demo team can.

The pilot took an amazing picture of himself flying over the U.S. Naval Academy on Tuesday.

“#BlueAngels are ready to fire it up over @NavalAcademy #upsidedown!” he tweeted. As of Wednesday, the message was retweeted 1,111 times.
