Kociuba has been preparing for her moment for the rest of her life.
She is a B-2 instructor pilot who has completed more than 90 combat operations and has more than 1,700 flight hours in five different aircraft.
The bombers would meet in the whiskey area – “restricted airspace” – before the pass.
“We will rejoin together at very low altitudes, very high speeds and this whiskey area, and then we will work on our own time, and then flyover,” she said.
