    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?'
