    His request approved, the Bulletin newspaper photographer quickly used his mobile phone to call the Townsville airport to charter a flight.

    He was told a twin-engine plane would be waiting for him at the airport.

    Arriving at the airfield, he spotted a plane warming up outside a hanger.

    jumping in with his bag, he quickly slammed the door shut,
    and shouted, ‘Let’s go’.

    The pilot gently taxied out, swung the plane into the wind and took off.

    Once in the air, the photographer instructed
    the pilot, ‘Fly over Mount Stuart and make low passes so I can take pictures of the fires on the hillsides.’

    ‘Why?’ asked the pilot.

    ‘Because I’m a photographer for the Bulletin’ he responded,’ and 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 new flight instructor?’

    As my flight instructor once told me “taking off is optional, landing is compulsory”.
