Chasing three UAE AF & AD Hawk Mk63s during a photo flight close to the city of Al Ain. What a great view from the back seat of an MB339.

Someone said, is that a rear view mirror in front of the pilot. Yes it is. A fighter pilot has to have "situational awareness" and a rear view mirror helps him see behind the jet so he doesn't get jumped by an enemy aircraft. Mirrors are an official installation by the manufacturer, but I've heard that fighter pilots have also used rifle scopes to enhance their already superb vision. Probably other things as well. Whatever it takes to get the job done.
