The interesting video in this post features F-35 demo pilot Capt. Kristin “Beo” Wolfe explaining one of her favorite maneuvers, the “I-to-I” or “Inverted-to-Inverted Pass.”
Upside down at 300 feet above ground level? Crazy…
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.
The US Air Force (USAF) F-35A Lightning II Demonstration Team is a world-class demonstration team, showcasing the unique aerial capabilities of Air Force’s most advanced 5th generation multi-role stealth fighter, the F-35A Lightning II.
The F-35 Demo Team also performs with the Air Force Heritage Flight Foundation to showcase the past, present and future of American airpower by flying in formation with World War II, Korean, and Vietnam-era aircraft.
The F-35 Demonstration Team recently relocated to Hill Air Force Base, Utah, and is part of Air Combat Command and the 388th Fighter Wing, the Air Force’s first combat F-35 Wing.
