The CNN photographer John was told that a twin engine plane would be waiting at the airport. Arriving at the airport he spotted a plane warming up outside the hangar. He jumped in & said: “Lets go.”

The pilot happily took off.

Once in the air John told the Pilot: “Fly low over the valley so I can take pictures of the fire on the hill.”

Pilot: “Why?”

John: “I’m the photographer for CNN. I need to get some close up shots.”

The pilot was strangely silent for a moment, then asked: “So what you’re telling me is you’re not my flying instructor?”
