Children from Robert Gross Park Camp once again visited the Burbank Bob Hope Airport fire station to learn about careers at the airport.

Southwest Airlines, Atlantic Aviation, Million Air and the TSA participated in the Thursday event, which drew 65 campers. The children learned how to guide planes into gates, got splashed with water from a fire truck, and saw how public safety officials prepare for emergencies.

The children also looked inside a luxury jet, got an up-close look at a police helicopter and watched aircraft take off from the tarmac.
