Today's software or movie software has a lot of things you can do. back in the day it was called masking. today, you can outline something and put into another part of a video. a lot of ghost video's are made like this video. this was two separate video's put into one.

Reading further it appears to have been a publicity stunt to promote "Wingman" body wash products. he also jumps with shoes on and later in the video you can see he has no shoes..

So far, every FBI document seems to confirm: Unsub left the plane at 8:11pm or so, and that the plane was near Ariel at this time.

Now what?

Here are a couple of questions related to Canada:

1.  Does anyone on this site know when the Canadian Thanksgiving Day was locked into the second Monday in October?

2.  Does anyone know what the normal commercial banking hours, as well as any governmental banks where money can be withdrawn, are in the eastern provinces of Canada?

Nope. All I know are Loonies and Toonies. And that my ex in BC does NOT want to see me or hear from me.

You must not be paying alimony.

Robert: "On January 31, 1957, the Governor General of Canada Vincent Massey issued a proclamation stating: "A Day of General Thanksgiving to Almighty God for the bountiful harvest with which Canada has been blessed – to be observed on the second Monday in October" [Wikipedia}. Before then it had generally been the 2nd or 3rd week but moved around.

Will dig into the banking hours.

The current banking hours  seem to be anywhere between 8:30 am and 6 pm, though hours vary widely. Most  are M-Th 10-4 (ish) with later hours on Fridays, usually till 6. Some branches are open Saturday for a few hours but things won't clear till Monday usually. Closed on stat holidays, ATMs available all the time for most branches. I have no idea what those hours would have been in 1971, I seem to remember some branches open for ex. loans until later. Certainly no later than 9. Mom always banked well before dinner at 5 or 6 ish so I imagine most closed around 4. Looked through some old newspapers, no ads mentioned hours of specific branches bur may try some more later.

I spent a number of months in Canada, circa 1969-1970, to see if it was a good place to live... I didn't go to many banks then since I didn't have any money, but it seemed like they were on the American schedule of Mon-Fri, 9-3 pm. Closed Saturdays and Sundays.

I have some additional questions and comments which I will send to you by PM in the next day or so.  I would like to keep that part of the discussion offline for the present time.

DB Houston had a serious crush on Tina, too. I love this guy....

Doug Perry wrote about him for the Oregonian in 2018. How did you hear about this, Marty?

Latest FBI documents just released... They had a clipping by him and it mentioned his book on the subject. Zero copies on Amazon. Zero on ABEbooks.  It would be one of the first books on DB Cooper and by local journalist... it should be an interesting resource.
