FAIRCHILD AIR FORCE BASE, Wash. - KHQ's Leslie Lowe got the opportunity of a lifetime this week when she flew with the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds.

After a crash course of training with her pilot "Wolfie," and being told which buttons not to push, she strapped in and took to the sky! She did every twist, turn and flip that "Wolfie" had to offer, and even hit some of them twice! She even hit 7 G's!

And when she was back on the ground, she had an empty barf bag to show just how tough she is! Way to go Leslie!
