HONOLULU (KHNL) -- A game show wows Hawaii fans, Aloha cargo pilots fly without pay, and a crime suspect turns himself in. These are the most viewed stories on khnl.com this week.
A man walked into the Kalihi Police Station after Crimestoppers released surveillance photos and
identified him as a suspect
in an ATM theft case.
But the 45-year-old left after investigators decided not to arrest him. He's accused of withdrawing money using a bank card that was accidentally left in an ATM.
"The fact that so many
pilots come in on their own time not getting paid
shows their dedication. These are the kind of guys you want to keep around to fly for us," said an Aloha air cargo employee.
After a brief shutdown, Aloha Airlines resumed its air cargo operations, delivering food and other necessities. The pilots have been hailed as heroes, even as their long term fate remains up in the air. They haven't been paid for several weeks, yet about 30 of them continue flying cargo between islands.
And the number one story:
"The girls, the dancers, you got to know about the dancers and Willie," said a fan.
It's part game show, part entertainment. It's the Filipino version of NBC's hit game show Deal or No Deal. Wowowee is the most popular game in the Philippines and it's taken its act on the road making a stop here in Hawaii.
Aloha Stadium was packed with thousands of eager fans. Rain and technical difficulties delayed the show by two hours but once it started, fans forgot how long they waited.
