Working with him were his partners, Reggie Wilkins and Steve Reynolds, the husband of the flight attendant on the infamous flight.

The MarkEdit

  • D. B. Cooper, the infamous hijacker of Northwest Orient Airlines Flight 305.

Episode NotesEdit

  • D. B. Cooper (aka Dan Cooper)
    DBCooper
    gained notoriety and status as a folk hero in the days following November 24, 1971, when he hijacked Northwest Orient Airlines Flt. 305 from Portland, OR to Seattle, WA, parachuted from the plane with $200,000 and disappeared. To date, he has never been found, and the FBI believes it was unlikely he could have survived the jump from the plane. The only evidence of Cooper ever found was $5,800 of the ransom money, which was discovered along the Columbia River in February 1980.

TriviaEdit

  • Northwest Orient Airlines later became known as Northwest Airlines before it was purchased by Delta Airlines, which took over its routes, in 2008. It ceased to operate as a brand in 2010.
  • The hijacker actually used the name "Dan Cooper", but a media miscommunication caused the name "D. B. Cooper" to come into common usage, despite having no actual connection with the case.
