A little misunderstanding!
John said the twin-engine plane would be waiting for him at the airport. Upon arrival, he noticed that the pilot of the plane was already sitting in the plane. He jumped in and said, “let’s Go!’ The pilot taxied and took off. Once they were in the air John told the pilot:
“Fly low over the valley so I could photograph the fire on the hill.”
The pilot was surprised : “Why?”
John : “Because I’m the photographer of the television show. I need to make some good shots up close.”
The pilot for a moment, oddly silent, and then muttered, “You mean… you’re not my pilot instructor?”
