Dockhand for Hooker Air was my first job in Jan.1972. An Otter pilot came in from a trip and told Jack they needed toilet paper up north. Jack's reply: "You're taking the first class mail on the next trip. Tell them to wipe their ass with that." Once you got to know him he was actually a great guy imho.
