Capt. Wolfe was publicly introduced as the new F-35A Lightning II Demonstration Team pilot on Feb. 29, 2020 after being certified to fly the demo profile during the annual Heritage Flight Conference held at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Ariz.

With over 800 flight hours in both the F-22 Raptor and the F-35A Lightning II, Beo is a combat veteran pilot from the 388th FW. She’ll be “sending it” for the next two years, showcasing the world’s most advanced fighter jet to people across the world.

Capt. Wolfe is the first female single-ship demonstration pilot since Capt. Zoe “Sis” Kotnik was suddenly relieved of her command of the F-16 Viper demo team last year.
