USAF Global Strike Flyover Ready To Support Super Bowl 55

Bombers Will Conduct A First-Of-Its-Kind Trifecta Flyover

Three different Air Force Global Strike Command bombers will conduct a first-of-its-kind trifecta flyover during the National Anthem performance at the fifty-fifth Super Bowl, Feb. 7 over Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.

“We are very excited for Team Whiteman to lead the formation Air Force Global Strike Command bombers,” said U.S. Air Force Col. Jeffrey Schreiner, 509th Bomb Wing commander at Whiteman Air Force Base. “The opportunity to showcase assurance to our allies, flexibility and our commitment to the nation is a true honor.”

The bomber flyover, will feature:

  • B-2 Spirit from Whiteman AFB, Missouri
  • B-1B Lancer from Ellsworth Air Force Base, South Dakota
  • B-52 Stratofortress from Minot AFB, North Dakota

The B-2 will take off for the Super Bowl LV flyover, piloted by Maj. Dan “Tusk” Ecklebe and Capt. Sarah “Gucci” Kocuiba, from Whiteman AFB, join up for the flyover, and return to base following the event. Demonstrating the flexibility of AFGSC’s bombers and their ability to deploy anywhere in the world from the continental United States.

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