clinton are traveling the country in some snazzy planes. but who has the better ride? jeanne moos reports on the aerial dogfight. coming soon to campaign stops nationwide... ("fantasy island") "the plane! the plane!" but which plane? is it donald trump's customized 757 or hillary clinton's blue 737? on its maiden voyage as a campaign plane, hillary's ended up parked within sight of the donald's. and hillary was asked how she felt seeing his plane... (hillary clinton/(d) presidential nominee) "i didn't feel anything. was i supposed to?" trump's plane is more fantasy island... (nat sound) "24 karat gold plated sink. you'll notice that the seatbelts as well as everything else are 24 karat gold plated." while hillary's is a more normally configured plane carrying 96 passengers, trump's carries only 43 but puts them in seats adorned with the trump family logo. (nat sound) "here we are in mr. trump's bedroom." mrs. clinton doesn't have her own
plane. (jeanne moos/cnn national correspondent) "one major difference...hillary' s plane is a rental." while the donald bought his jet used...it's now 25 years old. (nat sound) the donald makes up for all that gold plating by sending out photos of himself eating mcdonalds and kfc, albeit with a knife and fork. both candidates held airborne gaggles with reporters, (hillary clinton/(d) presidential nominee) "(cough) i need some water." though when hillary had a coughing fit, allergic to tr she had quipped, she broke off her gaggle... (hillary clinton/(d) presidential nominee) "i'll be right back." one critic coined the hashtag air allergy while another photoshopped surgical masks on the press. (jeanne moos/cnn national correspondent) "but there's no question whose plane is bigger...the president's, air force one." trump's is bigger than hillary's and the donald told rolling stone "it's bigger than air force one..." but the washington post got the specs to prove donald wrong. pants on fire. better pants than an engine.
one area where hillary clinton is ahead of donald trump, is ad hillary clinton is ahead of donald trump, is ad spending... especially in battleground states like ours. clinton has spent more than 127 million dollars for tv ads in battleground states... donald trump just 18 million. according to n- p-r... these numbers represent ads purchased through november 8th. here in the silver state... clinton isn't holding back when it comes to reaching nevadans. she has spent more than 13 million dollars on t-v ads... donald trump has spend about 150 thousand. the race will be especially close here... with more people headed to the polls because they are interested in the senate race. a local family's tragedy is bringing attention to domestic violence... and how common it is here in our valley. what advocates for victims say is one of the biggest

recover tonight after a husband killed his wife... and committed suicide in anthem. now people who knew the family say the entire thing is shocking... and out of character. fox5's adam herbets is live in the newsroom with an update. adam? john/ christine we're still waiting to find out the name of the victim in this case... right now the henderson police department is only describing her as a 41 year old woman... but we are learning more about her husband. from the outside looking in -- people said they thought he was a good guy... and now people are trying to figure out if there might have ever been warning signs. (nats) most of the people in the neighborhood didn't know the couple who lived here... they just saw them driving around every now and then... so they did the polite thing and waved. (nats) they just seemed like a nice couple... with two beautiful daughters... but now people say, there had to have been something they weren't seeing.
lot of warning signs that were ignored... dr. valerie williams-goss specializes in domestic violence cases... and even though she isn't involved in this one... she says it doesn't matter if the husband seemed like a good person... whenever a relationship ends in a murder- suicide... she says there's almost no way it could have gotten like that overnight. most cases where a woman is killed, it happens once she leaves or once she gets the nerve to go -- and that's what keeps the woman there. most w are being abused to the point where they ultimately could be killed are being told the whole time -- if you leave i'll kill you. or i'll kill the kids. aside from a few traffic tickets... 38-year-old michael yonke's record was clean. police say they were at the house a few weeks ago... but that it was just an argument, not anything abusive. in a case where domestic violence is reported, somebody is supposed to be arrested. this doctor wonders if maybe it went unreported... like
to be very careful. if you're with a person who ultimately can kill you, you're probably with a very very scary person. closed captioning will resume shortly jury selection is now underway... for the armed jury selection is now underway... for the armed ranchers who took over a national bird sanctuary in
