The mystery of DB Cooper’s kidnapping and disappearance after 50 years lives on in the Pacific Northwest
It has become a familiar story in Pacific Northwest, if not further. As with many infamous unsolved mysteries, only the name – D.B. Cooper – can lift the hair on the neck and inspire wonders.
Wednesday marks 50 years since a mysterious man widely known as D.B. Cooper (“Dan Cooper” being the name he used for a one-way ticket) jumped out of the back stair door of a Boeing 727 for $200,000 somewhere over southwest Washington. It remains the single unsolved case of air piracy in US history.
