Happy D.B. Cooper Day!

D.B. Cooper

D.B. Cooper

On November 24, 1971, a hijacker who called himself “Dan Cooper”, sat down in seat 18C on Northwest Orient’s Flight 305 out of Portland, Oregon, bound for Seattle, Washington. After takeoff, D.B. did the damn thing and ended up hopping out of the Boeing 727 with $1,051,940 (adjusted for inflation in 2008 dollars-originally $200,000).

He’s never been caught, and the case remains the only unsolved hijacking in the world.

PD New Beginning

So, happy D.B. Cooper Day!
