Time is money

The hotshot photojournalist wants to get the best possible pictures of the forest fire, so he rushes out to the airport and jumps straight into the small airplane waiting on the tarmac. To the young pilot he shouts, "Let's go, take off, go, go! Time is money!"

As directed, the pilot quickly takes off and gets up to altitude. Then the reporter points at the forest fire: "See that fire raging to the west? I want you to fly over that and get down as close as you can."

"You want me ... to fly over that fire?"

"Of course!" says the reporter. "That's what I called ahead to hire you for."

The pilot looks over with a quizzical look on his face: "You mean you are not the flight instructor?"
