Photographers shoot pilot Dan Katz, center, helping Ebony Gomez, 7, into his Beechcraft Bonanza for a flight with Walter Gomez Jr., 9, left, at Van Nuys Airport, Wednesday, September 15, 2010.
The free flight was made possible by the nonprofit Children's Burn Foundation which is dedicated to helping children who have suffered burn injuries.
The Gomez family was involved in a car accident in 2004 when their car burst into flames, causing severe burns to all but Ebony. Since then the family has undergone years of reconstructive treatment and therapy as they continue their recovery.(Michael Owen Baker/Staff Photographer)
