At the conclusion of the National Anthem, a B-2 Spirit (stealth bomber) flies over the 106th Rose Bowl Game in Pasadena, Calif. Flown by Lt. Col. Nicola “Rogue” Polidor, the first female pilot to fly the B-2 in a Rose Bowl Game flyover, the stealth bomber passed over the stadium where the Oregon Marching Band (OMB) proudly displayed the American flag below on the field. The Rose Bowl game between the University of Oregon Ducks and the University of Wisconsin-Madison Badgers was a close game, with the Ducks narrowly beating the Badgers 28-27.
PS. We were pre-approved to be in the airspace above the B-2 and were on a discrete frequency with the other aircraft in the airspace and with the authorities on the ground.
