    Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) pilot, Todd 'Woody' Woodford, has managed to capture the exact moment he fired an AGM-88 High-speed Anti-Radiation (HARM) missile in a perfectly timed cockpit selfie.

    It would look cooler if he releases the countermeasures while a rocket is right behind his plane, and capture that moment ;).

    At a cost of between US$280,000 - US$870,000 each the HARM missile has to be the ultimate EDC for a fighter pilot.

    More info on the picture:

    Aircraft is an EA-18 Growler. The pilot, FLTLT Woodford, is currently assigned to US Navy Squadron VAQ-135 and is the first Australian to launch a HARM missile. The selfie was taken off the coast of Pt. Mugu, CA, during a live fire exercise.
