SP is a complex person, lots of demons from a truly horrible abusive childhood.

There burns a bright flame of decency inside him. You can feel it. Doesn't rule him out as DBC, but I can't see him threatening to blow up innocents  just to get money. That behavior doesn't fit the guy I have come to know. He is a perfect fit skill wise though. Even he admitted that in his statement on the History Channel DBC special: "Everything pointed to me, everything..."

Not a chance Bruce. You think you saw that but you didn't really. No US air tanker past or present has that layout.

Then WTF did I see? Aliens again? Sigh....

Just attended my 50th high school reunion. The photo on the far right is my 1967 graduation photo. My classsmate added the cockeyed sunglasses and posted this on our reunion website:

"Mark --- Your posting confirms my suspicions ... You ARE DB Cooper !!! It all fits. The parachuting, a little trim of your hair and the sun glasses. The FBI is certainly going to catch you now. And here's the picture proof. -- Bill"

You're a better man than I, Gunga Din. My 50th is this coming weekend and I ain't going. I'd probably go ballistic with Bill O'Reilly prancing around and blowing kisses at everybody, and nobody at my school - Chaminade HS, Mineola, NY - gives a Flying Flip that the former principal from 1999 until 2011 allegedly raped a bunch of students and is now in hiding in the Vatican.

That reminds me - I haven't taken my Blood Pressure today - gotta go---

The Bulldog and I are currently engaging a form of email psychotherapy. He alternates between screaming at me for ALL OF THE LIES I've told about him, and then tells me how he fell for a young lassie at the U of Missouri who claimed she was Miss California and it wasn't true...

In turn I talk about my wives, girlfriends, and other tales of betrayal and broken hearts - and boy do I feel good afterwards!

Yup, ol' SP is one hell of a guy. He's one of the joys of spinning around in the Vortex.

Dovid - please be careful with the links you post here. I just received an email from a fellow Forum reader who says he clicked on one of your links and it went to a spam website.

For me, I click occasionally on your links but I am not able to see anything clearly - it's a mish-mash/paste-up on a website. That's why I think it would be better if you digested the raw information and gave us a distillation or summary.

Sheridan and I get along well and stay in touch. He no longer thinks I'm CIA FBI. He is sharp, fit and good looking. Still full of rage about injustice, inequality and especially about the horrible unreported atrocities he witnessed in Vietnam. He'd like to jump again but only solo, no tandems for this tough guy. I've tried unsuccessfully to find a DZ that will let him jump solo. He did get a recent observer ride in a jumpship at the DZ in Cloverdale CA. He's super well read, up to date on world affairs. I lost $20 to him betting that Trump wouldn't be elected. He advised me against the bet saying I was certain to lose.

BTW he now acknowledges that he roomed in Sailshaw's place for a short time. And he did work in the Space Needle running the elevator.

He was an incredibly daring skydiver. Night jumps, water jumps, night water jumps and a very early rebel wingsuiter. Jumping into the wilderness as a USFS smoke jumper didn't  faze him at all.

Thanks for the reply. It's great the he's cool with you now, I know you have a lot of admiration for him.

Very possible. Becoming more humble seems to be a major dynamic in my life these days. I was telling an ex-girlfriend this a couple of days ago and she said, "Once you conquer your narcissism, you'll be perfect."

I agree!!!

Still reading about the fires in Santa Rosa - 5,700 homes and businesses destroyed as of today - whew.

How Sheridan Peterson survived is a miracle. His assisted living residence is about 4 miles southeast of the Coffey Park neighborhood that was totally annihilated, with 1,500 houses gone.

Donald Wheeler Johnson served in the Army Air Corps during World War II, where he flew the British deHaviland Mosquito, an advanced twin-engine night fighter, in the European Theater.

Donald Wheeler Johnson also served in Germany during the postwar occupation.

I believe Donald Wheeler Johnson was laid off when the SST Program ended.

Harold Eugene Richey served in the United States Coast Guard during World War II and Guam in the United States Navy SeaBee during the Korean Conflict.

Harold Eugene Richey worked 23 years at Boeing.

Harold Eugene Richey was supervisor of SST Model Shop for 4 years.

Harold Eugene Richey left Boeing in 1971.

Maybe Harold Eugene Richey was laid off in 1971.

Ralph D. O'Quinn joined the Army Air Corp in 1944 and was training to be a pilot but was not deployed, as the war ended and he was honorably discharged.

Ralph went to work for Boeing Aircraft Co. for the next 27 years.



He was an excellent problem solver, and at one point he was named Man of the Year for solving a structural adhesion problem that saved Boeing millions of dollars.


When Ralph was laid off for a year during the massive SST layoff in 1971, he used the opportunity to launch his own sportsmen's coatings business, Trondak Inc.


Thaddeus Kolankiewicz, program manager for a variety of research and development efforts including the proposed Boeing 2707 SST.

 All in all, Ted Kolankiewicz flew nearly 100 models of civilian and military airplanes, ranging from the size and weight of the J3 Piper Cub, to the speed of the F8 Crusader, and the size of the Convair 880 and the Boeing 707.

Leslie Pritchett was fluent in French.

He worked for the Aluminum Company of Canada in Arvida, Quebec.

He worked for Kaiser Aluminum in Spokane, Washington after Quebec.





He was part of the team developing titanium structures for the Super Sonic Transport.

Frank Keith Seidel was in the 10th Mountain Division.

 Frank and Pat moved to Seattle where he was employed by Northwest Airlines, and then eventually Boeing, with focus on the Super Sonic Transport plane.

Daniel Martin Smith served in the Army Air Corps, during World War II.


 In 1969 he moved to Renton, but took a hiatus for work on the east coast between 1971 and 1975.

 He was proud of his work to develop the Super Sonic Transport ('''SST''?), which, unfortunately, never came into production.

Richard Earl Lingen served in the Army during World War II.

After graduation he joined the army and was stationed during WWII in a hospital in San Francisco as a pharmacist in a burn unit.

While at Boeing he became part of a materials research team that pioneered systems in titanium development in particular for the Boeing Supersonic Transport.


 In 1971 they moved to Irvine, California where he worked for Stresskin Technology - a material manufacturer for the British French Supersonic Transport.

Could be. I would rate the resemblance to be 5 out of 10. That's enough to continue digging.
