TAMPA, Fla. – MacDill AFB will line up an Air Force Global Strike Command B-1 bomber on its airline February 3-5 in preparation for the Super Bowl flyover.
Three different Air Force Global Strike Command bombers will perform a unique “trifecta flyover” during the National Anthem performance at Super Bowl LV over Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.
“It is an enormous honor for our command and the US Air Force to support this event,” said General Tim Ray, AFGSC commander. “We look forward to this opportunity to demonstrate to the nation the reliability, flexibility and precision of our bomber fleet during this exciting event.”
The bomber overpass will include:
B-1B Lancer from Ellsworth Air Force Base, South Dakota
B-2 Spirit from Whiteman AFB, Missouri
B-52 Stratofortress from Minot AFB, North Dakota
Each aircraft departs from its respective bases for the Super Bowl LV flyover, participates in the flyover, receives air refueling from a MacDill KC-135, and returns to base after the incident.
