November 24, 1971 - Pacific Northwest - A man known as Dan (not D.B) Cooper boarded a Northwest Orient Airlines plane from Portland to Seattle. He was dressed in a suit and tie, and appeared calm and collected as he made his way to his seat. Cooper ordered a bourbon and soda, and soon after takeoff, he handed a note to the flight attendant. The note indicated that Cooper had a bomb in his briefcase and demanded $200,000 in ransom money and four parachutes. Cooper's demands were met by the authorities on the ground, who delivered the money and parachutes to the plane during a stop in Seattle. Cooper released the passengers and two of the four crew members, and the plane took off again with Cooper, the pilot, co-pilot, and flight attendant still on board. Cooper strapped on the parachutes and requested that the plane fly at a low altitude and slow speed.
As the plane approached Reno, Nevada, Cooper opened the rear door of the plane and jumped out with the ransom money. The FBI conducted an extensive search for Cooper, but he was never found. The case has become a cultural phenomenon, inspiring numerous books, movies, and TV shows, and sparking the public's imagination about the ultimate fate of the daring hijacker. In future episodes of the podcast, we will explore potential suspects and theories related to the case, and continue our investigation into one of the most intriguing unsolved mysteries of our time.
