  • Flying and Photography.... Funny Story

    A good friend just sent me this.... thought you might get a kick out of it...

    .... A photographer from a well-known national
    magazine was assigned to cover the recent
    Southern California fires. The magazine
    wanted to show some of the heroic work of
    the firefighters as they battled the blazes.

    When the photographer arrived, he realized
    that the smoke was so thick that it would
    seriously impede or make it impossible for
    him to photograph anything from ground-level.

    So he requested permission to rent a plane
    and take photos from the air. His request was
    approved, and arrangements were made. He
    was told to report to a nearby airport, where a
    single-engine plane would be waiting for him.

    He arrived at the airport and saw a plane
    warming up near the gate. He jumped in with
    his bag and shouted, "Let's go!" The pilot
    swung the plane into the wind, and within
    minutes they were in the air.

    The photographer said, "Fly over the park
    and make two or three low passes so I can
    take some pictures."
    "Why?" asked the pilot.

    "Because I am a photographer for a national
    magazine," he responded, "and I need some
    close-up shots."

    The pilot was silent for a moment; finally he
    stammered, "So, you're telling me you're not
    the flight instructor?"
