Whatever happened to D.B. Cooper?

D.B. Cooper was one guy who wasn’t going to get stuck at the airport.

Or on an airplane.

Back in 1971, he hijacked a plane flying from Portland to Seattle and demanded a flight to Mexico, four parachutes – and $200,000.

Cooper bailed out somewhere over southwest Washington – and disappeared.

Over the weekend, folks in Ariel, Washington gathered for their annual party in honor of Cooper – and the country’s most famous unsolved hijacking.

Take a listen to my story about the party, “Whatever happened to DB Cooper” that aired this morning on NPR. There are some intriguing theories floating around out there….
