5:03 am
i'm jeff glor with vinita nair. anthony mason has a much deserved day off. we have a lineup including the anthem. they're explored a bit of a new sound on their new album which debuted on the billboard's top 100 chart. they'll perform in our saturday session. plus on a special edition of democrat our dish," he's called america's best butcher and jeff shows us why. but we begin with the top story. the u.s. and nato vow to take on and crush the brutal terrorist group known as isis. >> he says it will involve cutting off the islamists' financial backing and striking them on the battlefield. julianna goldman is at the white house with more. good morning. >> good morning, he ended his trip vowing to destroy isis. his strongest comments yet. he said he's enlisted international partners in that fight.

5:06 am
we're joined by bobby gauche. boib bobby, always good to see you. the president has been krit citizened for not having a strategy against isis. is a coalition clear enough? will it be effective enough? >> it's clear. whether it will be effective enough is what it's set up to do which will be mostly the area of the campaign. there are missing pieces and they're in the arab countries. one is for accountability. this looks like it's primarily the western world trying to ride to the rescue here. and, two, because eventually there's going to have to be boots on the ground. all the countries in the coalition beginning with the united states says they can't be our boots, they have to be somebody's, but they have to be the arab states. >> we've been trying for years. which begs the question if you use troops on the ground how successful can they be?
5:07 am
>> actually they can be successful. when they took over iraq the wrong troops were there. they were holding back its best soldiers to protect the south, the shiite areas. that was part of the problem. there are -- as in any army, there are some brigades that are elite, and they were brought into the fight later on. remember when we took the mosul dam when isis was driven out of the village? it was the elite troops brought up from the south in baghdad to fight isis and they showed they can fight them and they can beat them with the american support. those two troops have to be a bigger part of the equation not the ones who turned and ran when isis stood up. >> you mentioned the aerial strikes. what do those impacts look like? >> well, i think the president perhaps misspoke. this is not like the fight against al qaeda. it was a terrorist group in the classical sense.
5:08 am
terrorist cells in various countries. we're talking about anywhere between 15 and 20,000 people who fight for isis. we have to fight them at least in the beginning like an army. so the analogy is mucher more the taliban than al qaeda. eventually when it's defeated and the leaders are on the run then it will look much more like a fight against taliban. special operations s.e.a.l. team 6. that comes in the end. right now there is an army marching across northern iraq and big parts of syria. it has to be defeated in a sense in the batt a cease-fire in eastern ukraine this morning appears to be holding after five months of fighting, ukraine, russia and kremlin-backed separatists finally signed a deal to stop the conflict.
5:09 am
charlie d'agata is in our london bureau. good morning. >> good morning. they said they had violated the cease-fire by firing a couple of mortar rounds. the real test is whether it will lead to a long-term one. then the tenuous cease-fire aimed at ending five months of bloodshed that has left more than 2,000 people dead took hold. and never has a cease-fire been declared quite like this. at one of the most exclusive golf clubs in brittain ukrainian president petro poroshenko addressed the most powerful club in the world, nato. >> i've given an order to the chief of my military to declare a cease-fire in a half an hour's time at 6:00 ukrainian time.
5:10 am
>> reporter: overhead a show of force for nato leaders gathered for the summit, a reminder at least in words, ukraine and its eastern european neighbors have the backing of the alieps. as to whether the piece will hold a skeptical president obama gave a cautious we'll see. >> a cease-fire announced today is going to advance that goal but only if there is follow-through on the ground. pro-russian separatists must keep their commitment and russians must stop their violation to the sovereignty and territory. >> but it's far from over. regions remain divided. the conflict remains unsettled, and people who have been living under threat of all out war for months know this simmering hatred can soon spark further fighting. keeping up the political pressure, the united states and

5:19 am
it's going to be seen on the full front. >> one of the thing i read is we'll be able to have the ability to pay right off the phone, something companies have tried for so long. is this going to be a possibility? >> this is a big talking factor. they're going to have something like an iwallet. you won't have to take your credit card out to pay. you take your phone and touch it to the register like a touch-to-pay. we've seen it before with android and google wallet. it hasn't really taken off. what would be different is if they put this in their rumored smartwatch. we talk about having it in the watch. let's be honest paying with your phone or your credit card that's not going to save time. if you pay with your watch, we could have this a-ha moment where they pay differently. >> we have our credit card information from itunes so this could be better than the others.

it times now for "morning rounds." joining us cbs news contributes dr. holly phillips and dr. tara narula. the ebola outbreak is likely to spread to more countries. a third aid worker has contracted the virus. dr. rick sacra was delivering babies when he became inspected. he's being treated now in nebraska. ebola survivor nancy writebol talked about her near deck and recovery. at first she tested positive for malaria malaria. she tested again and got the news that it was ebola. >> the darkest moment was the night they put me on the airplane, not knowing whether i would ever see my husband again, not knowing whether i would live on that flight. >> reporter: nancy writebol was released from atlanta's emory university hospital two weeks ago. she told us she felt near death when she was transported from liberia to the u.s. in early august. she received the experimental drug zmapp. >> was it the zmapp drug?
5:38 am
was it the supportive care? or was it your faith? and my answer to that question is all of the above. >> reporter: writebol and a second american dr. kent brantley were both infected while working in ebola units. the third victim dr. rick sacra, flew to africa to help after learning they had the disease, but he worked in a maternity ward away from ebola patients. s.i.m. president bruce johnson. >> they check patients at our hospital before admittance for ebola symptoms, and there is a strong possibility that the ebola symptoms were masked. >> reporter: sacra is one of roughly 200 american aid workers in west africa, and concern is growing over the safety of u.s. doctors and missionaries treating them. how many of you have volunteered
5:39 am
to go after learned what happened to kent and nancy? >> dr. sacra and also the doctor that is flying right now back to liberia. >> does it concern you that one of the two that volunteered was diagnosed and you're still actively encouraged them to go? >> obviously it concerns us. it concerned rick and his wife as they talked about him returning. >> holly, some health experts criticized the cdc and world health organization for being reactive rather than proactive when it comes to this ebola outbreak. are we ready for the next ebola outbreak? >> we're certainly learning a lot from this ebola outbreak and that will affect how we manage other epidemics. but really when we look at it time is of the essence here. this epidemic is described as being upward and out of control and ebola has its own unique set of challenges. for one thing it's gripping places where health care is virtually nonexistent and there are challenges to awareness and
5:40 am
education. you know we're seeing cases where people are hiding their family members who are sick with ebola rather than putting them in isolation wards which, of course, spreads illness. but also we need greater cooperation from the international community. we're seeing some countries that are neighboring places with ebola closing down their borders which paradoxically actually raises the risk of spread within their own countries and outside of it. so i do thing we're learning a lot from the challenges that ebola is facing us with and we can apply those to the next situation. >> tara we heard jeff in the piece ask the missionary group if they're going to send more? >> i think the fact that a third aid worker got sick, you know, raises that question but these are people, as we said in the package package, that are volunteering to go. these are the heroes on the front line fighting the epidemic. i think if anything what it's done is cause the aid groups to shout out to the world they need help. they're overstretched and they don't have enough funds or
5:41 am
health care workers and resources on the ground. it's time for the global community to really step in is what they're saying and make it a global problem, not just a problem that faces africa. and the head of the doctors without borders this week said the clock is ticking and ebola's winning and i think that's the statement that these aid groups are making that we need bigger help from the international community as holly said. >> holly, they've begun human trials of the vaccine. they received zmapp. is it too late for those to make a difference this this now? >> i do think meds and vaccines will play a role only some level, even in this right noidemic. which is isolation, quarantine, and care. it's making people aware. also this week the american journal association finds many women are having double mastectomies. it's nearly double. the number of early stage breast
5:42 am
cancer patients who get a double mastectomy has grown substantially in recent years. this seems like a major surgery to have if it's unnecessary. >> that's right. we're talking about early stage breast cancer. there's only three ways to treat that. one is breast-conserving therapy, which is radiation. the other is unilateral mastectomy. and the most aggressive step is remoorchl of both breasts. prior research has shown that it has the same survival as a unilateral or one-sided mastectomy. what this new research adds is when we look at the rates of sur vierchl for a bilateral mastectomy, it's also the same. where there is a survival benefit is really in women who have a genetic predisposition to breast cancer have a the brca 1 or 2 jean andgene or a history. >> why are they doing it? >> the women who do it say it's
5:43 am
about peace of mind the sense of having survived breast cancer and then still needing to go for mammograms or screening of the other breast is offputting to people and it's also a cosmetic effect. they feel they have a better result if they have an implant in both rather than having one natural and one reconstructed. the most important thing to know is what they're getting and what they're not getting. what you're not getting is the survival benefit. >> is there something negative you could be doing by getting a double mastectomy if you don't need it. >> there's always a risk to surgery, but when you operate on one breast you have the risk of infection, blood formation death of the flap of tissue they use to cover the breasts and when you operate on two breasts you're doubling the surgery. and what research has shown you have increased rates of blood
5:44 am
transfusion, increased rates of implant loss, if you're reconstructed, longer hospital stays. this is not to mention the other risk that comes from mastectomy that has to deal with sexual function and femininity and quality of life. if you're trying to lose weight, a new study suggests cutting carbs is better than cutting fat. researchers have studied 148 men and women for a year. those who were on a curb diet lost significantly more weight than those who cut their fat intake. the american heart association and the dating site match.com asked 1,000 adults about their lifestyle habits. it showed it can improve their mental and physical activity. tara, you were a spokesperson for the association. tell us about that. >> i love to say love is good for the heart. it was fun, an interesting survey sponsored by match.com and put on by the american heart association. it's really the first time
5:45 am
they've partnered in this way. what they found to many people's surprise, people who paired up were healthier. they ate healthier, ate more fruits and vegetables had less suge and salt exercised more more sex and healthier decisions. >> dare i say a man might benefit a little more than a woman from all of this. >> no doubt about it no doubt about it. >> dr. holly phillips dr. tara narula, thank you both. >> thank you. up next the news in leisure wear, why yoga pants are out and jeans are in. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday."

you for speaking up about this.
6:00 am
welcome back to "cbs this morning saturday." anthony is off so i'm jeff glor. >> excited to have you, i'm vinita nair. the big guys back in action. this is opening weekend of the nfl regular season and we will have an insider's look. then hollywood has fun with their elaborate plots, but there are real thieves too. we'll tell you how the government is now studying how they do it. and it was a volatile and often violent time in america. for 18 trepid photojournalist, it was a paradise. first our top store. the u.s.-led nato coalition is ready to take on the brutal terrorist army known as isis.
6:01 am
>> president obama says the campaign to degrade and dismantle isis will involve cutting off the islamists' financial backing and striking them on the battlefield. julianna goldman has more. >> reporter: good morning. the president returned here late last night and administration officials feel they made important progress in getting the international community to step up its response to isis. the president announced that ten countries including the u.s. u.k. france and australia and turkey and work to degrade isis using military force, political pressure and by squeezing its finances. >> there is great conviction that we have to act as part of the international community to degrade and ultimately destroy isil. >> mr. obama and other officials, including secretary of state john kerry insisted that there won't be u.s. boots on the ground. the goal instead is to bolster the fighters currently struggling to take on isis. iraqis and moderate rebels in syria who he says have been
6:02 am
outgunned and outmanned. the president outlined this just a couple of days after sending a conflicting message about the ability to defeat isis but he said it's the same model that's been successful in defeating other extremists. >> we are going to degrade and ultimately defeat isil the same way we have gone after al qaeda, the same way we have gone after the al qaeda affiliate in somalia. >> reporter: administration officials want to expand this coalition to include as many countries as possible especially in the middle east, and that will be secretary of state john kerry's mission when he heads to the region next week. i'm julianna goldman at the white house. the u.s. coast guard is expected to join the search for a plane in jamaica this morning after an american cup 'emouple is presumed dead. their plane crashed in the caribbean sea. it went down off port antonio on friday.
6:03 am
no wreckage has been found. air force fighter jets shadowed the plane after ground controllers lost contact with the pilot. it flew for 1700 miles before crashing. lawrence glazer and his wife jane are said to be experienced pilots. this morning chicago and parts of michigan are cleaning up the damage from severe storms that knocked out power to thousands. in kalamazoo, strong thunderstorms brought down tree branches damaging some homes. high winds knocked out power to more than 300,000 people at one point. chicago's wrigley field had a powerly thunderstorm that forced the cubs to suspend their game with the pirates. some flights were also delayed at o'hare airport. in the next few weeks the television networks will go head to head as they launch their fall season programming, but as teri okita reports, last night they were all joined together in a common cause, to raise money in the battle against cancer. >> it's time to stand up to cancer, people. >> reporter: dozens of celebrities did more than just stand up to cancer friday night,
6:04 am
they linked up across more than 30 broadcasts and cable television networks. >> everyone knows someone who's been affected by cancer. >> reporter: for the fourth time in six years, the nonprofit charity stand up to cancer held its televised fund-raiser to collect money for cancer research. >> science, for lack of a better word, is -- well it's cool. >> reporter: like in previous years, the show was broadcast live, without commercials, on all four networks and 28 cable channels. but for the first time it also streamed live on yahoo! and hulu. the amount of money raised wasn't immediately released but organizers said they hope to top the $100 million for the first time this year. the previous three events collectively brought in $261 million for cancer research. >> we can be more interactive than ever. >> reporter: katie curic helped launch the charity in 2008. last night she hosted an onstage
6:05 am
digital lounge. in addition to phone calls, celebrities mingled with donors via social media and other internet platforms. >> i've gotten two, both guys asked me to marry them. >> what is this for? >> reporter: despite the serious subject matter will farrell brought comic relief in the guys of his anchorman character, ron burgandy. >> i love stand up to cancer. but as a society we need to stand up to libras and pisces. >> in the end sofia vergara used her cell phone to demonstrate the widespread impact of the disease. >> if you have ever taken care of someone with cancer or know anyone who has cancer light it up and raise it high with me. >> reporter: teri okita, los angeles. at the u.s. tennis open here in new york serena williams will face caroline wozniacki
6:06 am
tomorrow. williams rolled over ekatarina. meanwhile wozniacki won after her opponent retired. >> any players in particular that you're excited to see this year? >> you know hopefully, you know, i'll be seeing a lot of good players on the other side of the net because that would mean i'd be winning. definitely serena is always someone to look out for. >> and you all are two friends off the court. >> yes, she's a great girl. hopefully we'll get to play each other. >> wozniacki and williams meet in the women's finals sunday afternoon. the men's semifinal begins today. >> that is going to be tremendous. it is opening weekend for the nfl. the seahawks rolled the packers on thursday night and there are 13 games tomorrow. next week thursday night football starts right here on cbs. here with a preview, cbs nfl
6:07 am
today insider jason la canfora. >> thanks for having me. >> the concussion issue came up thursday night. eddie lacy is now out for a little while. the league said concussions were down 13% but lacy was wearing one of these new helmets that's supposed to prevent concussions. >> i think it just points to the fact that science is still evolving and it's not there and everyone's brain is different, so there is no one template that will work for everyone. they're trying to study more arrow not exand what goes on in combat planes and the military and get some of that technology in the nfl, but there is no cure for this. people are more susceptible than others. the more concussions you have the more prone you are to them down the line. we saw wes welker wearing one of those for denver and he suffered his fourth or fifth concussion so it's a concussion sport. i think it's fair to say it's a concussion sport. >> let's talk about the seattle seahawks because you said you didn't think they had a chance to be super bowl champs. anything change after thursday
6:08 am
night? >> no. i said that they'd be really good and get to the playoffs but historically in this sport, again, we just said how physically demanding it is the way the schedule sets up. it's very difficult. i thought they had a heck of a preseason. i said wow, if they can do this in the regular season they'll be hard to stop. they went out and did it but they look like an offensive juggernaut and they're already known for their legion of boom defense so they could be even better. >> that was this past thursday. next thursday cbs starts televising thursday night football games. these are all intradivisional games. >> yeah. so the thought behind that is it's a short week it's hard to prepare. if you find teams that already know each other well already play twice a year there's some familiarity there, maybe you don't need to prepare quite so much. it cuts down on travel because geographically these teams are close together. it's a great slate of games. starting with baltimore/pittsburgh, maybe the best rivalry in the games. >> the bills are in there at
6:09 am
some point. >> everybody gets at least one crack at it. >> one of those games will feature the new york giants in washington. a lot of people feel like the name change it inevitable for the capital? >> it will be very interesting to see what happens there. their owner, dan snyder has come out many times and said i'm not going to change the name of the team. but he's also trying to get a new downtown stadium in d.c. one that could have a retractible dome, have super bowls. i wonder if the end game is he agrees to change the name in return for maybe some sort of sweetheart deal. there's a lot of balls in the air with that. but left to his own devices, he's been pretty adamant i'm not going to change this name. certainly pressure could come from his bosses at the league office and also from capitol hill. >> last question is this peyton's year? >> i think it's going to be his last year in the nfl. if he wins and is super bowl champion i could see him trying to run another team. i have a feeling he's going take
6:10 am
a little more physical abuse than he has in years past and this might be it. >> i hope the cowboys do a little better this year. >> i don't know if i can help you there. you're on an island there. >> jason, thank you so much. be sure to catch jason and the rest of the gang tomorrow at noon eastern, 9:00 a.m. pacific right here on cbs. and thursday don't miss the debut of thursday night football. coverage begins on the nfl network at 6:00 p.m. eastern followed by kickoff at 7:30. at 8:25 the baltimore ravens take on the pittsburgh steelers. it is about ten minutes after the hour and now here is a look at the weather for your weekend. weather for your weekend. up next the perfect heist hollywood style.

6:16 am
stopped? >> yeah. >> "oceans eleven," the movie about the las vegas robbery. they're not just hollywood. they do happen. experts charged with protecting america's nuclear arsenal at san dia national laboratories in new mexico are now studying the thieves' methods. joining us assistant director of the fbi now head of the company crowd strike services. sean, good morning. >> good morning. >> 25 years with the fbi. surprised the government studies this? >> i think it's fabulous that the government is looking at this. there's so much we can learn from history trying to understand criminal techniques, their tactics, what types of security measures they were able to defeat and overcome so that you don't repeat history, you're able to create and develop better and more proactive detections and security capen'ts. i have to say looking at some of the 23 they make
6:17 am
"oceans eleven" look boring. we're reading about thieves who walked awi can cash and items totally $430 million. how did they do it? >> this was an amazing case where thieves were able to use reconnaissance. in a lot of these cases we see the planning that goes into these types of heists. in this case for two years where the actual crime group became a tenant in the diamond complex. they were there for over two years, had access to the facility, was able to learn about the types of locks that were being used. the alarm systems, understand the guards' patterns et cetera. they were able to get a locksmith on the team. the locksmith was able to create the special picks. they went in over the valentine day's weekend in 2003 and over the course of days were able to steal millions and millions of dollars.
6:18 am
>> the heist that fascinates me the most is the museum in baum. they went in and took $400 million in the dead of night. what happened there, sean and what have we learned from that? >> you know one of the things that was discovered in the study was the use of deception in many of these cases. in the gardner museum case two criminals portrayed themselves as boston police officers. they actually knocked on the back door of the museum in the middle of the night. it was a new guard, hadn't been there before and he actually allowed them access into the facility. once they gained ak sis, they were able to subdue the guard, handcuff him and another guard and then they went through and stole rembrandts, dagat, hily val highly valuable things because they seized the guards who let them in. >> what is the lesson about national security from these? >> well in many cases it's
6:19 am
really about people. in a lot of the cases that were studied, there were detections in place. alarms were set off. people were viewed via camera. but people didn't always respond and react. and what we find in these cases is that the lack of human intervention where people become complaisant, they don't -- they're inattentive, that's the case where these thieves are able to gain access and they're able to make away with their fortune. as it relates to national security, it's very very similar. it really depends on humans being aware, not becoming complaisant, and learning to respond. watch the technology and respond to it and use it in a way that allows them to be much more response ivg. >> the research that you guys do is truly fascinating. i'm sure it's interesting to hear how these people accomplish these multi-million-dollar heists. sean, thank you so much. up next a photo journalist's paradise. a look at 30 years of turbulent

6:24 am
instructed. of course, people didn't know what the hell was going on on the streets. he responded to his instengts from the theatrical as well as the history. it's very important. the streets were turbulent. he got it all. >> he did what you might not expect. let's start with the '60s. some of the extraordinary pictures are from the '60s the assassination of dr. martin luther king in 1968. >> the pictures here are so moves. you can feel the grief and also the dignity of the people losing their beloved leader. it's a wonderful, wonderful photograph. >> let's talk about 1969. america went to the moon. he was at the kennedy space center. he took some amazing images of the launch of ""apollo 11."" >> i know. it's amazing. even would have photographed the launch. he doesn't do that. he captured the crowd.
6:25 am
those crowds spent the night there and were full of wonder as we all shout have been. >> everybody's pointing to the rocket. old sparky the electric chair. >> oh, god, help me. >> at the prison. we were looking at this yesterday. i mean it just -- >> you had a really emotional reaction to all this didn't you in. >> i did. when i was in newspapers i managed to get a man pardoned for a murder. one had already been hanged. when you think about this it looks like an ordinary chair. you get up close to it the stark brutality. the room is brutal. almost is appalling. these barbarians who were taking the heads of journalists, i have the same chill about this. you know we don't execute people in new york anymore nor do they in california. but it was -- thomas edison
6:26 am
invented this thing in trying to complete, you know his current, which was direct against the westinghouse ac to the innovation of electrical power came to me this montrosety of the electric chair. of course, lethal injections ain't great either. >> right, right. let's talk about the next few shots. these were taken in 1970 and 1972. they show young people protesting the vietnam war and president nixon's re-election campaign. >> i knew nixon pretty well and it was absolutely a traumatic time. he had the misfortune four days before the shootings of students at kent state when four students protesting about vietnam were stopped. four days before that nixon had referred to them as campus bums. now four were dead. >> we could look at these photos
6:27 am
all morning long. thank you for koching in. coming up here if you want a big adrenaline boost, the air race, it's happening today in texas at the nascar truck. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday." at 25 years old amber valetta's career had hit a high but behind the glamor and makeup she was keeping a mysterious secret. >> the first time i tried cocaine, i was in it, the first time. and the last time i used let me put it this way. i hadn't slept in a while. i ended up going to st. vincent's alone and walking home alone after they released me the next day and that is not a good feeling. >> reporter: but that's not where it began. discovered by a tulsa modeling agency at 15 amber valetta was swept up in the heyday of the 1990s fashion. she landed a "vogue" cover and
6:28 am
by 18 she landed in europe and ran around with a high society crowd. what did that feel like to rule the world? >> i didn't think about ruling the world. it was like being in a sorority you know. we were like college age and having great time and a lot of fun. >> reporter: she appeared on mtv's fashion style. >> i work a lot. maybe too much. i need to slow down. >> reporter: the money and access began to flow and so did the drugs and alcohol. were friends and family saying to you you've got an issue we need to talk to you about it? >> nobody really came out to me directly except my mom. she gave me a pretty strong lecture. i think my friends -- my real friends were just over it. they were far and few anyway. >> reporter: it wasn't uncommon for amber to show up high for a million-dollar photo shoot.
6:29 am
she soon sought help.
6:30 am
veteran sky driver jas stokes started driving in indiana to break his own record. get this. he planned to make 700 jumps in 24 hours to help pay money for the peyton manning children hospital's special olympics. >> the former green beret has had experience. he owns the world record of 640 jumps in 24 hours. how is that possible. but last night about halfway through, severe thunderstorms rolled into the area. he had to stop after only jump number 292, which means he has to wait until next year. >> can you believe it? i'd be so irritated i had to do
6:31 am
it again. we begin this half hour by taking you inside the world's fastest motorsports. >> forget indycars and hydro plains. if speed is what you're after, you have to fly. here's brendan scott. >> reporter: ft. worth texas motor speedway is famous for high-speed, high-octane car racing, but those laps look like a leisurely sunday drive compared to this. these are some of the world's fastest pilots and today they'll make history at the red bull air race championship. it's the first time these planes will fly inside a crowded u.s. speedway. >> to draw, you know the differences between, you know, racing an automobile and racing an airplane one big difference is if the engine quits, i can't pull off the side of the road. >> reporter: kirby chambliss is a two-time champion pilot. he and his racers usually fly
6:32 am
over empty terrain or open water at speeds of 230 miles per hour experiencing ten gs of force. >> when i'm making that corner and going 10 gs it's like a house sitting on your chest. >> reporter: they go through a challenging course of pylons competing for the fastest time but now racers will also need to dodge a giant jumbotron and grandstand filled with fans. >> you're actually looking down on us as we're racing through the track. to see the speed of these planes and how fast they turn a corner will just blow you away. >> there's kind of this coliseum effect here, and we're not used to seeing airplanes inside a coliseum. >> reporter: jim di matteo directs the race constantly communicating with pilots. >> you're cleared 500 feet to hold to. >> there's inherit risk with flying airplanes close to the ground but we do a lot of
6:33 am
engineers to ensure the most safe sport that we can. >> reporter: in fact the race went on a three-year hiatus so organizers could make safety improvements like standardizing engines and propellers. they also raised the height of the pylons and changed their material so they could burst apart if hit by a plane. >> out there we're pushing to the limit and there's risk involved but we trained for this. >> reporter: keektd mcleod is the youngest pilots in the race. he started flying when he was 3 years old. now at 30 his career has been in the cockpit. >> that's my office out there at 250 miles an hour. it's a competition. i'm not out there just for kicks. it's fun but i'm there to win. >> reporter: today is race 6 in an eight-race championship. next weekend the competition flies into las vegas and then ends in austria. for "cbs this morning: saturday," i'm brandon scott. >> do you want to go? >> as a spectator, yes.
