Wouldn't be the first time someone fools the public...crop circles, bigfoot, UFO's etc.

It's odd that it sat in the same position for almost 8 years and didn't get covered. it's documented as heavy brush or forest?

The FOIA record is 89.9% chasing false leads that go nowhere. That includes all searches ... by everyone. 

Somewhere are unique tracks that are Cooper's track alone .... where and what! ?

Just look at the show.  How many of these wives of suspects said "I KNOW he is DB Cooper".  Yeah right!  Suuuuure.  NONE of them including that woman are DB.  It is a waster of time

Cooper has made a HUGE TACTICAL MISTAKE. What's he going to do if everyone but Tina escapes the plane? Is he going to tell Tina to fuel and fly the plane...

This hijacking did not need to go the way it went. There were options. Has Mr. Cooper considered that! ? Cooper is in the dark - Cooper is an idealist idiot! The power can shift against him quickly ... he has no power beyond his bomb and convincing others to cooperate.  All Cooper apparently has is the threat of his bomb ... and others deciding to back down and play ball . . . others would have decided not to play Cooper's game and end this drama. 

Cooper is no cult hero! He is a vulnerable target if people decide to take that route!

 :rofl:

The flight crew had ropes in the cockpit for escape purposes if they ever needed to get out of the aircraft in a hurry.  They could have left the aircraft without being seen by Cooper or him even having knowledge of their departure and they considered doing so.  But Tina was never in a position so that she could be removed by the people on the ground.  The flight crew would not leave unless Tina could also escape.  They would not abandon her.

Thank you. We know.

Ariel Store Has New Owners

Galen emailed to say that the Ariel Store ahs new owners and they plan to renovate the old place and turn it into a DB Cooper museum.

Galen was on Ground Zero Radio this week with Clyde Lewis when some callers announced they had bought the tavern: Inva Begolli and Aaron Cash. They said it would be up and running for the 50th with a huge bash planned.

 A little late, but hope everyone has had a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving.

We were a little more laid back this year in Tennessee as we did BBQ, chicken strips and beer. We normally have family in, but my dad (at 86 years old) tested positive for Covid last week, so we opted to go small. He lives next door, so I was able to at least take him food. He's fine, just has to stay away from people for a few more days. It's crazy how he has been laying low and caught this thing, but yet I've traveled all over the country including a trip right into the heart of Covid country (NY City) a few months ago and have managed to avoid it to this point. My biggest fear about getting it was that I would give it to him...guess I don't have to worry about that now. At least for a while.

Going to sit down with my daughter in a little while and check out the HBO show on Cooper.

If any remote ignition sources were used then this rule would apply. remotes uses frequencies to communicate. today is the same with everything wireless. the standard wiring described here wouldn't apply. static electricity would?

CB.... 26.965 to 27.405 MHz

In 1971 the only transmitters/receivers on an airliner operated on a frequency band roughly somewhere between 110 MHz and slightly over 1000 MHz.  They also had navigation receivers (no transmitter capability) that operated on and below the standard radio broadcast bands.

I just posted a pic of the battery along with the dynamite and blasting cap..yes, a battery was seen and required..the dry cell batteries were originally designed for telephones. it replaced the crank generators that use to supply the power.

Flo or Tina said the battery was 6 or 8 inches long and as big around as her forearm. She said it had terminals on one end. Hager said it was the same batteries that they used to power their headlamps and floodlights when they were hunting raccoons at night.
