Lions in the shade of an airplane

Here is an amusing photograph.

Imagine the scene: "You are an African bush pilot. You fly in some critical medical supplies and enjoy a quick lunch at the hospital. It's a stifling 45 degrees in the shade and you're eager to get back up to the cool, high blue yonder. On the way back to your plane you discover that the only bit of shade within 10 miles has become very popular . You start calculating the distance to the plane door. And wonder ... Do I feel lucky today?"

The story above is possibly fabricated but could easily be true. It went around the internet by email a few years ago. The pictures are real. The plane pictured belongs to Blue Sky Aviation which operates out of Kenya and the lions are doing what they do in the heat of the African bush: make use of any available shade.
