Brian Williams, 'Late Show with David Letterman'When you think of a private aircraft that a celebrity might use, you're probably imagining a little slice of luxury in the sky. So was Brian Williams when he agreed to travel with Regis Philbin to an awards ceremony.

As a journalist, though, Williams appreciates the value of a picture and so we saw a darkened shot of him and Philbin. It looked like they were packed in the back of a shipping crate, with one small bulb illuminated above them.

Philbin was delightedly holding a bag of Cheez-Its, which he'd found by rummaging through the back of the plane. Next time, we'd fly coach.
