PHOENIX - Ten months after the small plane crash that nearly killed him, a Valley teen pilot is home from the hospital for good.
Brody Burnell boarded a long-awaited flight from Omaha to Phoenix on Wednesday. He's been recovering in hospitals miles from home since the crash last August.
On the Phoenix end of the flight, roughly 100 of Brody's family and friends waited. They chanted his name as he came up the ramp of the C gates in Terminal Four at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.
Brody gave a humble smile as he quietly waved to his raucous fans.
