COVER STORY: D-Day veterans of the air
A World War II-era Douglas C-47 military transport plane dubbed "Miss Montana" had been parked in a museum for nearly two decades after a career transporting firefighters in Montana. Now, with its engines rebuilt and the fuselage restored to its early glory, it is joining other veteran airplanes that saw service on D-Day 75 years ago for a trip across the Atlantic, for an anniversary flight over the beaches of Normandy. Richard Schlesinger talks with those who got Miss Montana back in the air.

It's estimated that nearly half a million Americans in jail haven't been convicted of anything, but are being held simply because they can't afford bail; now there are efforts in several states to eliminate cash-bail systems that put a price tag on freedom. CBS News

JUSTICE: Re-making bail
It's estimated that at least 60% of Americans in jail today – nearly a half-million – haven't been convicted of anything but are merely being held in pre-trial detention because they can't afford to make bail. What's worse, even people who are acquitted of charges may face years paying back their bail bond fees. Now, some states, like California, are moving to end their cash bail systems.

Lee Cowan looks at the $2 billion-a-year private bail bond industry, and talks with the founder of the Bail Project, a non-profit that gives those in need bail without added fees, as well as the executive director of Equal Justice Under Law, dedicated to scrapping the cash bail system entirely.

MOVIES: Mindy Kaling
When she was a little kid, Mindy Kaling didn't see anyone on TV who looked like her, and yet she's built a career as a writer and actress who is remarkably relatable, whether it's her characters in the sitcoms "The Office" and "The Mindy Project," her bestselling books, or her new film "Late Night," which she wrote and stars in alongside Emma Thompson. Luke Burbank sits down with Kaling and finds, as talented and funny as she is, she's less adept at making pizza rolls.

POLITICS: George Will
The Washington Post columnist and political commentator George Will has been a staunch and unshakable advocate for conservative policies for more than four decades. Calling conservatism in the Age of Trump "a persuasion without a party," he has left the Republican Party whose titular head he rejects (but not his court picks). Special correspondent Ted Koppel talks with Will about the state of politics, as well as one of the more hot-button topics of the day: baseball.
