What did Armstrong actually say when he stepped off the ladder?

""That's one small step for man, (long pause as he secured his footing on lunar soil)   one giant leap for mankind." It was a complete duhhhhhh moment, almost embarrassing, entirely without dramatic effect!

NASA inserted the "a" and edited out the long pause later so it would sound intelligent and dramatic.    ;D

Can you give us a synopsis of the presentation, Darren? I don't know anything about this guy, Ed Edwards.

Ed Edwards is a serial killer, convicted of 5 murders and a suspect in many more. He wrote the book Metamorphosis of a Criminal, and released a religious inspiration album. John Cameron, a retired Detective believes he is responsible for the hijacking as well as the Atlanta Child Killings, JonBenet, Zodiac, and many more.

Gentlemen,

An emergency has arisen in my Western Family. My theatrical mentor has
died - on stage during a rehearsal - and her family and many of us are
in turmoil. As a result, one of her daughters has asked me to go Boston
and close out her apartment. I will be leaving this weekend and will
return to WA on July 30th. Hence, I will be incommunicado.

Thanks.

Bruce

CooperCon 2019--48th Anniversary--info.

I'll be updating the CooperCon website this coming week with more specifics.

CooperCon 2019 will take place the weekend before Thanksgiving, Friday, Nov. 22 - Sunday, Nov. 24. It will take place in both Portland and Vancouver. The presentation portion of CooperCon will be on Saturday, November 23. This will be at the Kiggins Theatre in Vancouver. Both Friday the 22nd and Sunday the 24th will be dedicated to social endeavors including, DB Cooper-related movies and docs, the DB Cooper escape room at NW Escape Experience, a boat tour out to Tena Bar (weather permitting) and getting together for drinks and food at a Portland brew-pub each night.

Saturday's presentations will include contributions from the following:

1) Mark Metzler
2) Bruce Smith
3) Tom Kaye (re-play of his 2018 presentation)
4) Marty Andrade
5) Darren Schafer
6) Vern Jones
7) Tom Colbert (he stated that he has it on the calendar, however, a surrogate may be employed).
8) Eric Ulis
9) Others are being approached.

In addition, there will be significant changes from last year's event as follows:

1) Food will be close by.
2) There will be a "Jeopardy" trivia event involving the audience.
3) There will be a panel of guests who actually lived in Portland/Vancouver at the time of the skyjacking and will discuss personal recollections of the day and how they were impacted.
4) There will not be separate presentations given related to individual suspects, rather, there will be a panel discussion that includes authors familiar with specific suspects engaging with the audience and taking questions.
5) There will be some hands-on displays related to artifacts and evidence in the case.

This will be a fun and informative event over the entirety of 2 1/2 days. Of course, books and other media will be available for those interested. There will also be a fee associated with Saturday's presentation--probably $10.

If anyone has any other thoughts or ideas regarding CooperCon 2019 please let me know. Truth be told there simply isn't enough time available over a single day to get into all of the subjects that people would like to discuss. Nonetheless, hopefully this year's event will lead to an even bigger event in 2020.

Cheers!
Some men see things as they are, and ask why? I dream of things that never were, and ask why not?

What happened to the Bruce Smith Mountain News forum? Where did it go? Is it still active?

Interview Matheson, Ammerman, or Shutter ?  We need to know the direction the T33 took out of PDX, and where it rendezvoused with 305. 

I have one version from Ammerman but I am now unwilling to post it - because anything I say might offend someone. So anything from me is now null and void.

This matters because: if 305 was flying a straight path from Toledo to Canby, then any rendezvous of the T33 with 305 must probably intercept 305 on that Toledo-to-Canby line.

So, please interview whoever you have to to resolve this for everyone. Good luck!  :chr2:

How about not being able to post at all. that can be arranged.

I need you to explain your actions. all I did was post a page on this forum. I then copied and email from the author.
