    Alaskan bush pilot uses old Piper Cub airplane (fabric over wood) for successful fishing trip. Hungry grizzly bear in backwoods finds plane with yummy smell, demolishes it looking for fish that are gone.

    Pilot radios for delivery as follows:<blockquote># Two rolls of cellophane tape.
    # Two new tires.
    # Three cases of duct tape.</blockquote> After delivery, repairs commence.

    It takes a special kind of crazy to be an Alaskan bush pilot.
