His request approved, the CNN News photographer

quickly 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 CNN'

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?'
