377 has never mentioned no ripcord, nobody has...the big deal has always been the X on the container..this would be 3 things missed by an experienced skydiver...

1) The famous X was missed
2) the firmness of the container
3) No ripcord..

It's like giving a kid a loaded gun telling him it's a toy gun...

It would have to have a ripcord, otherwise the container couldn't be closed.  And if it didn't have a ripcord, everyone should have recognized that it was not a serviceable reserve chute.

Further, if it didn't have a ripcord it would be of only limited use in training.  How to pull and discard the ripcord in an emergency is part of the training.

Two unrelated questions:

1. Where does the belief that the Tena Bar money was found perfectly stacked on top of one another? Does Ingram state this? Is this the language used in the 302s?

2. What evidence is there that the FBI actually investigated missing persons? How thorough was their investigation? How far back did they go, and what areas were searched?

Here is one 302 that addresses searching for a missing person - took all of two minutes to find a missing person report- there are many hundreds if not thousands of similar 302s that document searching for missing persons! Start reading 302s!

Have posted this 1000 times so here is 1001 - the Ingrams said the bills came out in "groups"  Nothing about alignment. No 302 I have seen addresses this issue.

Many 302s that document missing people being investigated.

The belief or claim that the Tena Bar money was found perfectly stacked on top of one another, is propaganda peddled by whomever says that.  Its idealistic nonsense. The Ingrams say they took the "groups of money" they pulled out of ground home in a sandwich bag. Another FBI document states 'they pulled out three bundles of money ...." Another document states: "was in a parcel barely held together by decomposed rubber bands, which crumbled and fell away upon being handled." The Ingrams presented a sandwich bag with groups of money they found. These groups of $20s were s spread out on a table for the news media to see. See photo below -

Thanks, Shutter. Can you tell me how you searched? Which databases were used?

I don't believe it had an X. Also, it wasn't like the chute normally had a ripcord and it was removed. Also, I do not believe DBC took the dummy as a true reserve. Rather I absolutely believe he used it to store the overflow packets.

Where does the info come from the chute had no ripcord...we have multiple critical things that are considered funny stuff that Cooper warned not to do...how many did he just let go?

I should be careful not to speak about things I am not an expert concerning. 377 should probably answer questions about a ripcord or how the container was opened. All I know for sure is that the parachute itself was literally manually thrown out by hand.
