I thought titanium was relatively expensive compared to other materials. And flammable above 600deg.  But likely it must have desirable characteristics for its application at that time.
Can someone explain why they'd use them in non essential parts like the lavoratory?

Old post to reply to, but...

Dice, aluminum will react easily with hydrochloric acid (puke). And since they gave out barf bags regularly, it stands to reason that they'd have to remodel the bathroom regularly if it was aluminum. The previous comments about the anti-corrosive properties of titanium are a probably spot-on, in my opinion.

I'm glad to have found this exchange. It's good to know that others have seen what I'm seeing.

Innuendo is not evidence. You still havent given evidence there were titanium particles in the plane lav, or any other particles on Kaye's list, or that Cooper or anyone else picked up particles in the plane lav ... etc etc etc. At best its a hypothesis, not even a theory.

What strikes me about the whole particle list discussion to date, is there has been no attempt to organise all of these particles into classes that has any meaning. Some people talk about smoking related particles, rare earth particles, etc. There is no class reduction list of this nature on Tom's site or anywhere else? Rare particles are getting all of the attention so far. In all of these thousands of particles there evidently is only one spore which turned out to have no value in nailing down location ... it's like trying to make sense of a basketball game with ten thousand players on the court.  :rofl:

Just saw Bruce sightseeing in Amboy on Episode 2 of Mission Declassified. Seems pretty standard and tame a production so far. Guy seems to be certain the Amboy chute was a decoy buried by Cooper. Liked how he demonstrated with timed jumps that hitting a chosen spot on the ground was impossible. Yet another show where an expert says Reno was a better spot and instantly the fast, encouraging, upbeat soundtrack kicks in, indicating the host is onto something. So far it's a generous C-.

**Update:  Ah, it was McCoy jumping in Reno with the Money laundering in Vegas. I was convinced he did it in the lounge with the candlestick.

Perhaps I am being unfair, but aside from the two jumps 30 seconds apart to demonstrate how far off an error in timing would take you, this had nothing new or exciting in it. He ended with facial recognition software that matched McCoy to the Bing Crosby sketch only and called it "massive."

The show must go on!

It's the show, and the show, and the show - to quote Gen. MacArthur.

Look at that...the Mayor of Cooperville getting all famous.

Must have been "Ice Fishing," so to speak. Anna Stephens and her camera guy stopped by my place too, shortly afterwards. Thanks for the pix.

The one thing that surprised me is that he said that some passengers recognized McCoy as Cooper but the stewardesses didn't or something like. I thought that the reason for him being eliminated was because nobody recognized him. Also 1 flaw with the 98% match with facial recognition is that that implies that the sketch is 100 % accurate.

I haven't seen the TC Mission Declassified episode, yet, but it does seems heavy on McCoy and all the info that came out of the FBI's Salt Lake City Division and Russ Calame. I heard the rumors that some passengers thought McCoy was Cooper, but I haven't seen any corroboration, nor names to follow up with.

Supposedly Karga 7, which produced the show, is sending me a DVD with the episode on it, and I plan on following up with the producers on what and why they did what they did with DBC.

Supposedly Karga 7, which produced the show, is sending me a DVD with the episode on it, and I plan on following up with the producers on what and why they did what they did with DBC.

A couple of things:

First, you can watch the episode for FREE on the Travel Channel's website.

Second, I wouldn't get too worked up over the show. The host does settle on McCoy over the course of a "few hours" of investigating FBI files because he's looking for someone who would launder the cash through Vegas.

Obviously, for those who are serious investigators we immediately recognize the "flaws" in the show. That said, it's for entertainment. Even though it's a documentary it's not really meant to be a "serious" presentation. This is simply an episode, and crafting something that has some sizzle and builds up drama is what they're out to create.

It would be nice to see a serious documentary series about the case presented somewhere. To that end, I have reached out to a couple of production companies and am pushing just such an effort (not suspect specific). Needless to say, I'll let you know if something develops.

Thanks, EU. Off to the TC, I suppose - the episode was there right under my nose, eh?

Yes, your idea of a real docu on Cooper is needed and essential. I champion that notion completely.
