LARNACA, CYPRUS - And the winner of the best selfie ever, that`s not really a selfie, but we’ll call it one anyway when Londonite hostage, Ben Innes, 26, poses with the bomb-toting hijacker on Egypt Air Flight MS181. Talk about a photo bomb. Innes took a picture with not only the hijacker, Seif El Din Mustaf, but also, the actual bomb! Ok, so the bomb ended up being fake but Innes didn`t know that at the time. It could have been the last selfie he ever took.

Innes told the Sun, “I`m not sure why I did it, I just threw caution to the wind while trying to stay cheerful in the face of adversity. I figured if his bomb was real I’d nothing to lose anyway, so took a chance to get a closer look at it."

This is where Mustaf, must of, had a change of heart. After all the love sick hijacker commandeered the plane all for a woman. Just glad this one didn't end with a bang.
