Wrong Plane ?

A photojournalist working with one of the biggest national daily newspapers was assigned to cover a dangerous wildfire in a large forest.

As the smoke was too thick to take good pictures, he asked the management of his employers to rent a plane. His request was approved at once, and they told him that a plane was waiting for him.

As soon as the photojournalist arrives at the local, minor airport in the region near the disaster zone, he sees a small plane waiting near the runway. He rushes to the aircraft, climbs on board with all his equipments and shouts excitedly:

- "Let's go, let's go!" As urged, the pilot takes off and reaches soon his flight altitude.

The photojournalist:
- "Fly to the north side of the fire and fly above at least three or four times."

- "Why?" questions the pilot.

Annoyed, he replies, showing his equipment:
- "I am going to take pictures! I am a photojournalist, and a photojournalist is there to take pictures!"

For a few seconds, the pilot remains silent and then turns to him and asks:
- "Does that mean that you are not the flight instructor?"

Oh Marianne, it is funny!

(And did you notice, they are doing BOTH swearing and praying, here...)

Yes, indeed - praying can help as much as swearing - and "twice the impact" seems even more efficient - lol.

:O:ermm::angel::D:D

Oh Marianne I think we have discovered something, here!

Marianne Virginia May 11

Lol - did you look at the video on the grunting tennis players? (One does not know if they are praying or swearing - lol, and it seems to help.)

In any case, we may not be the first ones to discover this "mechanism", but at least, we did the thinking and the analysis all by ourselves.

:D:D:D

Wait a minute!

The student pilot knew how to take off by himself???  :unsure: :wassat: :O :D

@T(h)ink

Yes, it looks much like a flight student having had more than one practical lesson and knowing already how to take off and fly in the required direction - but he might not know how to land.

After all, they say that taking off is easier than landing - but I don't know if they are right ...

Rooster can certainly tell you - lol.

:O:ermm::angel::D:D:D


@ Marianne,

Oh, yes, you are right, landing is definitely harder.

I mean, it's a lot easier to find the sky from the airport than it is to find the airport from the sky.

It's a matter of scale, and the sky is also a lot more forgiving than the ground if you get something wrong. :D :D :D

@T(h)ink

Yes, indeed - there's definitely more space (the only exception would be a too intense air traffic):
