His request approved, the photographer used a cell phone to call the local
airport to charter a flight. He was told a twin engine plane would be
waiting for him at the airport.
Arriving at the airfield, he spotted a plane warming up outside a hanger.
He jumped in with his bag, slammed the door shut, and shouted, ‘Let’s go’.
The pilot taxied out, swung the plane into the wind and took off.
Once in the air, the photographer instructed the pilot, ‘Fly over the valley
and make low passes so I can take pictures of the fires on the hillsides.’
‘Why?’ asked the pilot.
‘Because I’m a photographer for Fox Cable News,’ he responded. ‘And I need
to get some close up shots.’
The pilot was strangely silent for a moment, finally he stammered, ‘So, what
you’re telling me, is . . you’re NOT my flight instructor?’
