That was speculation. Cooper never made that claim.

Why was the suggestion so quickly shot down?  If that was the case why not stay to the east of Portland? Why not stay close to the mountain range and follow along side it? Not many people below you and there is a highway close if you need to make an emergency landing. I think the bigger issue (at least until the calculations were all done) was whether they could even make it to Reno and where to make a landing if they were not able to make it. How many airports between Portland and Reno had a runway long enough for a 727 to land on? (remember we are talking 1971) I would say none.

I didn't say anything about landing between Seattle and Portland. I said between Portland and Reno.

And I said "between Seattle and Portland or anywhere else"!

I'm a little busy at the moment and will address this problem soon. In the mean time I have locked the thread.

The idea of i'm right and you are wrong will never prove anything. I know engineers and pilots that disagree with a western path. One has to wonder why the pilots failed to say they flew a straight line down to Portland after seeing the flight path. Nobody on this board knows what the pilots really did without a one on one interview.

We need to discuss the case minus the bullshit. We can go argue with Blevins all day long. He wants to discuss suspects except his. He fails to answer to the lies recorded on that thread.

We have some new things to look at and those are in motion at this very moment. Leta deal with the problems and let the DZ whine away....

Lets work the problem vs creating them!
