Photographer for CNN




A photographer for CNN was assigned to cover southern California 's Wildfires last year. He wanted pictures of the heroic work the Firefighters were doing as they battled the blazes. When the photographer arrived on the scene, he realized that the smoke was so thick it would seriously impede, or even make impossible, his getting good photographs from ground level.

He requested permission from his boss to rent a plane to take photos from the air. His request was approved and he used his cell phone to call the local county airport to charter a flight. He was told a single engine plane would be waiting for him at the airport.

Arriving at the airfield, he spotted a plane warming up outside a hanger. He jump ed in with his bag, slammed the door shut, & shouted, "Let's go".
The pilot taxied out, swung the plane into the wind & roared down the runway.

Once in the air, the photographer instructed the pilot, "Fly over the valley & make two or three low passes so I can take some pictures of the fires on the hillsides."

"Why?" asked the pilot.

"Because I'm a photographer for CNN," he responded. "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?
