Captain Sarah Kociuba has 90 combat missions and 1700 flying hours in 5 different aircrafts, according to Fox 13.  This Sunday, she’ll fly over Tampa for the Super Bowl.  She says they’ve been working on the plan to fly over Raymond James Stadium for weeks.  The fighters will join together after departing from 3 different airports.  It’ll be a really special moment.  But the crazy thing… she won’t be able to watch the game!  She won’t land until the game is just about over.

Three Air Force bombers will fly over Ray Jay, according to AirForceTimes.com: a B-1B Lancer from Ellsworth Air Force Base, South Dakota, a B-2 Spirit from Whiteman Air Force Base, Missouri, and a B-52 Stratofortress from Minot Air Force Base, North Dakota. There’s a mathematical significance to those choices: B-1+B-2+B-52 = 55. This will be Super Bowl 55.
