Nice interview, but I think you were wrong on one point Ross: Cooper was never offered a square parachute, as I understand it. Any of the Pioneer/NB6/NB8 chutes would have been conical.

You are right.  I don't know exactly when the square parachutes were introduced, but I think it was sometime after 1971 (377 probably has the answer).  The NB6 was definitely a conical (I owned one up to about a month or two before the hijacking).  I don't know from personal experience if the Pioneer and NB8 were conical or just circular.

The probable reason that Cooper did not want a military parachute from McChord AFB is that the USAF/NAVY, etc., started putting radio beacons in their parachutes during the Vietnam War.  Rescue aircraft could home in on those beacons during the search for downed crewmen.  Later hijackers handled this same issue in a number of different ways.

I enjoyed this a lot. I like the way that Ross promotes Lepsey without force feeding him to everyone.

I don't have a favorite suspect and my guess has always been that the true identity of Cooper is someone we have yet to hear of. But, if Melvin Wilson had brown eyes....

For everyone's information, the matter of eye color should be viewed with an open mind.

In my younger days, I had brown eyes.  Now they are hazel/green.

So if Tina met Cooper walking down the street, she should keep in mind that his eyes might not be the same color as what she saw in 1971.

I'm wondering how crooked his front teeth were? the missing person file claims he had two crooked teeth. Tina sat right next to Cooper for a longtime, but never mentioned anything out of the ordinary with his teeth.

NMI, is there any pics showing this, all of them have his mouth closed?

One in the lower row, the other in upper row.
One in front of others, the other behind the others.

I thought we did the right thing and provided dossier to the authorities.
We have been hung out to dry with nowhere to turn in hostile circumstance.
The Cooper Curse is real.

Any suggestions?

I only have two photos of Robert Richard Lepsy which show his teeth.  A family member told me one of his front teeth was slightly forward of the other.  I have not heard of any reports of something like this being mentioned by any of the Cooper eyewitnesses.  Attached is an image of Lepsy's teeth.

Another image of Robert Richard Lepsy showing his teeth.  It appears his left central incisor is slightly forward of the right central incisor.  Again, this feature was never described publicly by any of the eyewitnesses (Stewardesses, etc.).

Thank you!  I think those numbers are a testament to what you've built here.  It's not perfect by any means, but the fact that so many diverse personalities can share opposing opinions and ideas and still remain somewhat civilized, is pretty amazing.

Thanks, yes, I actually built this site. it took me 3 different computers running at the same time, but I got her up and running in one nite  8)

I think we proved to a few of the DZ members (Amazon) for one. that we can be civilized. it's a team effort indeed..
