    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 ?!?'

    Is this when the "pucker factor" comes into play?

    Getting them off the ground is the easy part, landing in one piece on the right spot is the hard part, but you are going to land somewhere.
