First Female Bomber Pilot To Lead The Super Bowl Flyover: Capt Sarah Kociuba

Meet the female bomber pilot who will be leading the Super Bowl flyover:
Captain Sarah Kociuba has a pretty impressive resume. She’s a B-2 instructor pilot, has flown more than 90 combat missions, and has more than 1,700 flying hours in five different aircraft. Come Sunday, she’ll be adding “Super Bowl flyover flight lead.”

Kociuba, call sign “Gucci,” will lead a formation in her B-2 Spirit, along with a B-1B Lancer and a B-52 Stratofortress. She says a lot of planning helps missions like these come together.
