The entire story is at Nola.com and is excerpted below. The government is overseeing BP, or BP is overseeing the Government?

“When a photographer from The Times-Picayune earlier this week tried to hire a plane to fly over Grand Isle, the charter plane company was told that the flight could not descend below 3,000 feet.

Southern Seaplane owner Rhonda Panepinto said her husband called the BP Command Center on Tuesday for permission to fly photographer Ted Jackson over Grand Isle, so that he could take pictures of the impact of the spreading oil from the Deepwater Horizon well. But the plane company was told by a BP contractor that media flights weren’t allowed in the restricted air space established by the Federal Aviation Administration.

“They told him absolutely no media or press on any planes. The press flights are limited to Saturdays only and only in Coast Guard helicopters,” Panepinto said.”
