The first-ever female piloted B-2 stealth bomber flyover kicks off Rose Parade, new decade! This video is from our dear friend Anita Minard, whose home is within walking distance of the parade route.
“United States Air Force Lt. Col. Nicola ‘Nicky’ Polidor makes history in Pasadena on New Year’s Day as the first female pilot ever to fly the B2 Stealth bomber over the opening of the Rose Parade.
“The B-2 flyover has become a 15-year annual highlight as the Rose Parade steps off.
“A California native, Polidor, who goes by the call sign ‘Rogue,’ became an aviator in 2004 a few months after graduating from the U.S. Air Force Academy. In 2011, she became the sixth woman to pilot the B-2 bomber, the world’s most advanced aircraft.”
