A Pilot Took Off Without Realizing Who His Passenger Was

Have you ever jumped to conclusions without knowing all the facts, only to regret it later on? Of course you have. We’ve all done it. But here’s a really tough way to learn.

John was told that a twin-engine plane would be waiting at the airport.
Arriving at the airport he spotted a plane warming up outside the hanger.

He jumped in, said ‘Lets go’.

The pilot taxied and took off.

Once in the air John told the pilot: ‘Fly low over the valley so I can take pictures of the fire on the hill’

Pilot : Why.?

John : Because I’m the photographer for a television show. I need to get some close up shots.

Pilot was strangely silent for a moment, then he stammered ‘So, what You’re telling me is . . . You’re not my flying instructor’?

The lesson? Always ask, never assume.
