As a fighter plane zooms through the sky, a woman’s voice says: “Every superhero has an origin story.” That’s the inspiring, high-flying start of the US Air Force’s latest recruitment campaign, one that aims high to get more women into its ranks.

Leveraging International Women’s Day (March 8) and an upcoming, globally-known superhero film featuring a female pilot as the titular heroine which releases on the same day (Captain Marvel), the US Air Force is releasing the new film and campaign in partnership with GSD&M, the military branch’s 18-year agency of record.

‘Origin Story’ showcases the inspiring and powerful female pilots that make up the US Air Force. It proudly emphasizes the “women power” that exists within the Air Force – because as it does in the upcoming Marvel movie, the Air Force states that it can turn anyone into a hero. The voice over states: “We all got our start somewhere, for us it was the US Air Force.” It wraps up with a caption asking “What will your origin story be?” and ends with the familiar tagline “Aim High.”
