One of the four pilots who soared overhead at Sunday’s Eagles vs. Patriots game visited Pennsbury’s Air Force JROTC program Monday. He spoke about his path to becoming the pilot of an F-15 and all he’s achieved since.

Lower Bucks residents looked skyward Sunday, Nov. 17 when four of the Strike Eagles zoomed overhead. While some were concerned, it turned out the pilots were doing a flyover for the Eagles game.

One of the pilots, Air Force Captain Sean Lipkin joined the JROTC students at Pennsbury High School. The fighter pilot is the nephew of school district administrative assistant Ms. Marla Lipkin.

Cpt. Lipkin explained he graduated from the Air Force Academy. He is now stationed at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in North Carolina.

During his time in the service, Lipkin bombed a former palace of Sadaam Hussein’s in Iraq. Sunday’s flyover ticked off an important box on his list of lifelong dreams.
