It was 50 years ago today that Dan Cooper (more commonly known as D.B. Cooper) got on a plane, produced a “bomb,” demanded $200,000 and four parachutes, escaped with the flight crew, and then jumped out over the Columbia River and disappeared.
$6K was found 9 years later washed up on the shores of the River. But no further evidence has ever been found.
Did he die? Did he survive and get away with it?
What happened on that day… 50 years ago exactly?
