D.B. Cooper

The mystery continues...

D.B. Cooper's 46th anniversary is this week, and the FBI released new documents. A letter from D.B. Cooper...

“I knew from the start that I wouldn’t be caught.” 

“I didn’t rob Northwest Orient because I thought it would be romantic, heroic or any of the other euphemisms that seem to attach themselves to situations of high risk." 

“I’m no modern-day Robin Hood. 
Unfortunately (I) do have only 14 months to live.”

Tonight my friends  at Eastern Airlines 
will be reliving the flight of D.B. Cooper

  1. I wonder if "DB" was somebody's Daddy? :)
    Maybe he (or she) flies in the L seat, somewhere... :)

  2. ONE of his demands: a parachute, BUT - rejected the military style one; instead accepted a civilian type with MANUAL rip cord... Ex-military or NEVER been in military?

  3. It's necessary to think outside the box, here:)

    1.2 million dollars - today's equivalent of what D.B. Cooper, politely, requested. What were his plans for the money? Hmm... perhaps... a TRANSITION:

    Deidra Beryl Cooper... :)

    1. Not sure... but apparently he wasn't going to be around for a long time. Maybe to say he could.


Thank you for your comment! If your comment doesn't appear immediately, it will after I land. Enjoy the journey!
