Robin Roberts' Dream

Tuesday, May 4: Flying is in Robin Roberts' blood. Her father was a member of the Tuskegee Airmen, and growing up she always wanted to know what it was like to fly. She recently had the chance to find out with retired US Airways pilot Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, the man who so famously and heroically landed Flight 1549 safely in the Hudson River. Roberts witnessed the miraculous landing from her home saying at the time, "It was just an amazing landing. … I still can't believe what I saw." Now, more than a year later, Roberts took to the skies in a Beechcraft King Air with Sully by her side.

Sam Champion's Dream

Thursday, May 6: As a child, Sam Champion wanted to be an oceanographer. So to have the chance to explore with Philippe Cousteau, grandson of Jacques Cousteau, was a life-long dream come true. Champion accompanied Cousteau to a manatee refuge area in Florida, where he saw first-hand the endangered and lovable sea cows -- and the efforts being taken to save them about 40 years after Cousteau's grandfather and father first documented their plight. The trip also marked Cousteau's first trip to the area since Jacques and Philippe Sr. filmed there so many years ago.

Bill Weir's Dream

Friday, May 7: Bill Weir grew up on a sky-diving drop zone where his father taught thrill-seekers how to throw themselves out of perfectly good airplanes. After an earth-bound decade, Weir's dream is to rediscover his family's adrenaline-fueled passion by leaping out of a variety of planes and a hot air balloon and flying through the Southern California sky with some of the sport's living legends.

"GMA" has been providing clues this week about the anchors' adventures on-air, on ABCNews.com and on "GMA's" Facebook fan page. The first viewer who correctly guessed each anchor's dream will be announced on the program and appear on the Times Square large-screen TV Monday through Friday.

The series concludes when one lucky "GMA" viewer will have his or her dream fulfilled on the broadcast May 27. "GMA" has been seeking submissions from viewers who also have a dream, and thousands have flooded ABCNews.com describing the scenario they would like to have fulfilled.

The top three submissions will be profiled on "GMA" May 10 and viewers can begin voting for their favorites on ABCNews.com.
