All-female air force: History-making flyover set for Super Bowl Sunday photo 1

GLENDALE, Ariz. (TND) — This year’s Super Bowl will be history-
making between the national anthem and kickoff. For the first
time ever, the pregame flyover will be piloted by
an all-female

The team will be commemorating 50 years of women flying in the
U.S. Navy.

It was back in 1973 — in Pensacola, Fla. — that the first eight
women began flight school. A year later, six of them, nicknamed
“The First Six,” earned their Wings of Gold.

Sunday’s flyover in Arizona will be comprised of two F/A-18F
Super Hornets from the “Flying Eagles” of Strike Fighter
Squadron (VFA) 122, an F-35C Lightning II from the “Argonauts”
of VFA-147, and an EA-18G Growler from the “Vikings” of
Electronic Attack Squadron (VAQ) 129.
