I recommend Nat's book. His work on the sketches is excellent. I understand that only the Kindle version is available currently, but I hope Nat re-introduces the print version, too.

Paratrooper of Fortune
has a lot of new information on Ted. I scanned it and saw it had a lot of original detail from the SOG guys. Al Tyre, who jumped with Ted and is one of the SOG troopers mentioned, is 100% a believer that Ted in DB. Drew Beeson, the author, is 90%.

Hi Bruce. It's been a while mate. Must admit the Cooper Vortex podcasts have given me a fresh lease of DB Cooper life.

As there isn't a thread for random DBC thoughts (not that I could find anyway) I will post this one here :

While I was walking along listening to a DBC Vortex pod yesterday I considered how cool it would be if someone made one of those montage pictures - you know the ones with the likes of Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, Humphrey Bogart and others all together at a bar - that consisted of all the DBC suspects sharing a drink together.

Then I took it a step further and imagined a short video where you see all the DBC suspects arrive at a bar one after another and share quite a few drinks. They introduce themselves and after some short talk chat away about the case. Along the way you see another guy enter the bar sometime after everyone else. By now the others have been there for quite some time, are preoccupied with their conversations and haven't really noticed this other guy until they notice he has gone.

My copy of 'Big Flies' has arrived. Should be a fun read, I suspect. But I have 100 pages of a book to finish first and then I will get into it.
