In a historic moment, seven talented female lieutenants soared the skies during the 2023 Super Bowl LVII opening festivities! 🎉

Arielle Ash, hailing from Abilene, commanded the diamond formation in her F/A-18F Super Hornet. She earned her aviator's wings in 2018 and marked her second game flyover at the Super Bowl after a college game in Texas. 🙌

Tampa's own Saree Moreno, a 2014 Naval Academy graduate, showcased her expertise as a naval flight officer on the Super Hornet. 🌟

In the slot position at the formation's rear, Suzelle Thomas piloted the F-35 Lightning II, a groundbreaking achievement as the first female to train on the naval F-35. ⚡

Peggy Dente and Lyndsay Evans dominated the right wing position in the EA-18G Growler Hornet, while Caitie Perkowski, a 2015 Naval Academy graduate, led the left wing in another Super Hornet, accompanied by Academy fencing champion Naomi Ngalle from Springfield, Virginia, as the Weapons System Officer. 

These trailblazing aviators continue to inspire us all! 🇺🇸✈️👏
