For the first time, the group of pilots performing the Super Bowl’s pregame flyover will all be women. The team of pilots performing the Super Bowl’s pregame flyover will be the first to honor 50 years of women flying in the U.S. Navy. The aircrafts featured will be two F/A-18F Super Hornets, an F-35C Lightning II, and an EA-18G Growler. Lt. Catie Perkowski, a member of the flyover team, said she joined the Navy to become a fighter pilot, and Lt. Katie Martinez said it is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
