A photographer for a national magazine was assigned to take pictures of a
great forest fire. He was advised that a small plane would be waiting to fly
him over the fire.

The photographer arrived at the airstrip just an hour before sundown. Sure

and shouted, "Let's go!" The tense man sitting in the pilot's seat swung the
plane into the wind and soon they were in the air, though flying

"Fly over the north side of the fire," said the photographer, "and make
several low-level passes." "Why?" asked the nervous pilot. "Because I'm
going to take pictures!" yelled the photographer. "I'm a photographer, and
photographers take pictures."

The pilot replied, "You mean eh.. you're not the flight instructor...?"
