Update on my DB Cooper screenplay....The Sky Way was chosen as a Quarter Finalist in the Screencraft Screenwriting Fellowship contest and will move on to the next round. The script has also been optioned by a director. Which means they have the right to pursue financing to get it made. One can hope!

Big congrats, Rob. Well deserved, too, as I have read the script.

This is awesome. Do you realize that this could possibly be the "First-ever, dramatic feature film to be done on Cooper"??
I hope it happens.

Isn't Tina appearing or working with producers on a film?

I agree. And it only took 50 years. But Rob, you may be "Da man to get 'er done."

Was that something that was in the Rolling Stone article? It seems like I did see that somewhere now that you mention it.

Tina mentioned working with a screenwriter in the Rolling Stone article. My heart sank a little when I read that because I've been researching and writing this screenplay for 5 years. My script has been done for 2 years now. I'm hoping to develop a relationship with Tina. I'd love the entire flight crew to read it. My script is a beat by beat procedural, focused on the flight crew, NW Orient employees and the FBI who assisted in procuring the ransom demands. Tina and the flight crew are the heroes of my story. I tried my best not to paint Dan Cooper as a hero. (Though I've received countless professional feedback to make him a hero.) It's based off the 302's and flight transcripts as close as possible. I have taken some dramatic license, mostly with the conversations between Tina and Cooper. That's really the only black hole in the transcripts. If anyone has a lead on how to contact Tina or any of the other Flight Crew, I'd be much appreciative.

Oh that is the biggie here.  Getting Tina to cooperate.  That would be HUGE.  And I say without science, she is the only one that can put a dent in this.  And I am for her trying to recognize his voice.  By doing a blind comparison to see if it "rings a bell".    Other than that, I wish you  luck.  I heard your podcast and it was excellent. 
So this may be my last post as I do not know of any way to enter the new site without being invited?  Good luck to all
