A photographer for a national magazine was assigned to get photos of a great forest fire. Smoke at the scene was too thick to get any good shots, so he frantically called his home office to hire a plane. " It will be waiting for you at the airport! " he was assured by his editor.

After a long pause the pilot said, " You mean you're not the instructor? "
