nellis air force base for the veteran's day weekend. the show opened yesterday and continues today. it features displays and their wildly popular aerial demonstrations. this is the largest free event in the state of nevada. katie boer got to take a ride.....ahead of this weekend's big show. ((katie boer)) the thunderbirds are known as high-flying airforce ambassaders--or as i like to call cowboys. here in southern nevada... is comprised of highly experienced f-16 fighter pilots. their job simply stated? .. inspire america's future military. but as i learned-- there's nothing simple about it. ---- from screaching mach-2 speeds.. (( nat pop )) to vertical loops and inverted upside-down fly-bys... (( nap pop)) only the air force's most elite-trained pilots get a shot at showing off their style in this squad. (( nat pop of tbirds flying by to serve as transition
8:08 am
the specialized 57th --- invited me along for the ride ((quick nat: kb getting her patches: "oh nice" )) but before i can even fly shotgun... hitching a ride inside the cockpit of an f-16 fighting falcon comes with major training. ((nat pop -- just to set the scene from our training -- only 2 sec! )) like squeezing excercises to prevent tunnel vision... ... and breathing techniques... (( it should look something like this so try that for me a couple times chh hoo chhh hooo good, )) .....this "hook maneouver"....a procedure designed to maximize lung capacity while experiencin just one question... (( kb: how often do people pass out? surgeon: very very very seldom )) guess that's good enough for me but first... i need the right equipment. (( "so were going to have you throw this on" :48 )) (( : "i feel like i got chaps on )) (( "i feel like im going up in space here" )) (( : " guys are like the sky cowboys!!" )) despite the current flight suit i'm wearing the crew still needs to size and fit me to a compression g-suit
8:09 am
kb: snug as a bug in a rug )) pop of lever being reased on suit (( good nat of different buckle for chest harness "abd it locks in like that )) (( crew: you want to kind of wiggle yourself in kb: oh? )) right.... i may look ridiculous, but this vest is designed to help circulate blood from my feet up to my upper body -- that and it will help keep me strapped into the jet. this fighter jet, sitting on the tarmac has my name on it--no really! number 8 in the fleet is piloted by major scott petz -- better known by these guys as "cheetah" --- i'm about to find out why. (( ready to go? kb: yep! petz: alright )) come.... inaudiable as he describes our takeoff :19 )) our "max climb takeoff" seems more like like a space shuttle and can climb 30-thousand feet a minute! (( kb: laughing oh my gosh! holy cow! pilot: we went a long way quickly, huh? kb: oh wow! )) (( "this is the craziest coolest thing i've ever done in my entire life" )) and you think takeoff's crazy? these jets go negative 3 to a whopping 9 g's. nothing to ease you into that quite like making your passenger take over the reins... (( ok now push forwsrd little bit there you go. kb: uh.. oh my god! pilot: alright pull back it like you stole it: )) yeah... i wasn't expecting to fly the
8:10 am
(( pilot: here we go... here...come...the g's )) in less than a second... my body )) in less than a second... my body feels like it's sucked back into my seat... pilot: remember don't forget to breath okay )) at 9-g's...the gravitational force makes my body feel nine times heavier. (( kb a little calmer: oh my god. pilot: cool huh? kb: that was incredible!! )) that force... ((nat of jet returning to nellis )) and a flight --- i won't soon forget ((nat of loud jet noise as crews are bringing us back in )) (( kb hugging pilot kb: that was amazing thank you so much )) ---- ((katie boer)) okay... i was impressed---but the "ambasaders in blue" don't do these stunts to impress me.

dollar copay for primary care doctor visits. and, our members pay a zero dollar copay for specialist visits and a zero dollar copay for hospital stays as well. i wanted a plan that's been here as long as we have. senior dimensions is one of the longest-standing local medicare advantage plans in nevada, and our plan offers many tier one preferred generic drugs for a zero dollar copay at most local neighborhood pharmacies. i like that i have plenty of doctors and specialists to choose from. senior dimensions offers a broad network of local providers one of the largest and fastest growing multi- specialty groups in nevada. it's what i want. and she gets what she wants!
