(Glendale, AZ) -- For the first time ever, the military flyover during the start of the Super Bowl will have all female pilots.

The historic female flyover will be in honor of 50 years of women in U.S. naval aviation.

The first female aviators were accepted into the Navy in 1973.

"The Arizona Republic" says all the pilots in Sunday's flyover are well practiced in flying in formation, and will fly over State Farm Stadium during the singing of the national anthem.
