HILL AIR FORCE BASE, Utah – Five aircraft representing the Air Force’s 75 years as a service will conduct a first-of-its-kind flyover during the National Anthem performance at Super Bowl LVI, Feb. 13, over SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California. The F-35A Lightning II Demonstration Team, led by Major Kristin “BEO” Wolfe, from Hill AFB will be one of five aircraft flying in formation.

The Air Force Heritage Flight represents the service’s ability to innovate, accelerate and thrive since its evolution from the U.S. Army Air Corps in 1947.

In addition to the F-35A Lightning II, the Heritage Flight flyover will feature:

- a P-51 Mustang from the Air Force Heritage Flight Foundation, Chino, California

- an A-10C Thunderbolt II from Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Arizona

- an F-16 Fighting Falcon from Shaw Air Force Base, South Carolina

- an F-22A Raptor from Langley Air Force Base, Virginia

The U.S. Air Force performs close to 1,000 flyovers a year which serve as a way to showcase the capabilities of our aircraft while also inspiring patriotism and future generations of aviation enthusiasts. These flyovers are done at no additional cost to the taxpayer and serve as time-over-target training for pilots, aircrew and ground control teams.
