Fly in "The Liberty Belle"

This week you can!

The Liberty Belle, a restored WWII B-17 "flying fortress" bomber will take to the skies over Boise. Today - the media gets a chance to go up... but for a price, YOU can get your chance this weekend - May 16th and 17th.

I was so lucky to get the opportunity to ride in a B-17 a couple years ago (on a media tour), and it was something I'll never forget! We did a story with some amazing veterans who used to fly them. Hearing their stories, and memories... it was a "once in a lifetime" experience, to be sure.

65 years ago, these planes took flight whenever the call came. The B-17's NEW mission? To educate Americans about our courageous WWII veterans, and to remember the men who never made it home. You can step back in time and experience the sights and sounds of this historic WWII bomber this weekend!

Fly in The Liberty Belle!
Dates: May 16th & 17th, 10am-5pm
Location: Jackson Jet Center - 3815 Rickenbacker Street
Schedule a Flight: (918) 340-0243

"The Biggest Loser" Sisters are in L.A.!

We caught up with Mandi Kramer and Aubrey Miller at the Boise Airport... they were headed to Los Angeles for the big finale of "The Biggest Loser".

It's time for the FINAL weigh in and the Idaho sisters look amazing! We've been following them for months now... and we've all seen their incredible weight loss progress. They wanted to say thank you to all their fans:

"We've gotten so much support, way more than I ever thought. It's huge." - Aubrey Miller

"Just really thank you, it really means a lot when we're struggling to try to work towards a goal, and we feel like we're alone because nobody knows what we're going through... it helps to have awesome trainers, and people who are willing to help you every step of the way." - Mandi Kramer

The sisters were sent home from The Biggest Loser ranch in March, but they are still in the running for a 100,000 prize. The contestant who loses the most (who has already been eliminated) wins the cash!

The finale of The Biggest Loser airs tomorrow night, right here on Channel 7.

PS: I'll definitely be watching, will you?
