    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?'
