Kind of interesting that Tina spends a lot of her life avoiding Cooper stuff, seemingly not wanting to be bothered or defined by it. Then she agrees to a feature film about her angle on it. Makes me wonder, does she have any kids?

Also, any rumors on who they're looking at to play her?
Producers wanted to make a film.
They obviously told her what she needed to hear.
Ka-ching!

I think there is something more than money at stake, although that might be the critical piece. I think Tina truly felt befriended by Joey and Dawn, and I think she had a deep longing for that. Whether that is legitimate, it's for Tina to decide. And time is for us by-standers to wait and observe.

If there is anyone telling anyone what they needed to hear, I think it would be Rataczak. He was clearly enamored with Tina, and his ability to tell the same story twice is suspect, as evidenced by his flight path pronouncements. In the History Channel docu, he said 305 was flying over land that was at 5,000 elevation. That's right on the slopes of Mt St Helen's and 30 miles east of V-23.

I think random speculation about Bill is pretty silly. He's got a bigger life than little stewardess fantasies.

It would be interesting to know if the FBI has made or will make any request to not reveal any of the hold back information in the movie.  Are they totally out of it or do they still care what the original witnesses may or may not reveal.

There has been references to things that Cooper may have said or may have done that have not been released in the 302s and that the FBI has asked the witnesses not to speak about.  I'll have to go back to the 302s, but I recall there was specific concern by the FBI I believe in 1975 time frame when one of the stewardesses and one of the pilots were approached by Hollywood folks about making a show or movie, I think it was around the Jack Coffelt story.

So, all I am saying, is whether or not Tina may include additional information that may not be known at this point.  Heck, will be movie include a picture of the money per Tina's description ?  Could clarify the bank type bands statements....

Well, the main hold back information is about how Cooper's body was found floating in the Columbia by an FBI agent, and it was buried in a dredge spoils pile about 50 miles from Portland.

I knew Ralph Himmelsbach was hiding something.

Himmelbach had like nothing to do with the case.
Big Talker, that's all.
Flew his plane around a bit. Wrote a book to make money.
Gave interviews for money.

If there's a conspiracy, Himmelsbach sure as hell isn't in on it.

A favor; a request to you all

I need some help sorting out the confusion at Amazon concerning my new books. Could you please click on the links below. Thanks.

Apparently, I need click traffic to my actual "author" page and the "sales" page to drive the algorithms Amazon uses to select and place new books. In addition, some publishing houses pay Amazon to put their books at the top of the list, so I'm swimming upstream against two currents.

Plus, Amazon is confused, or allows confusion to exist from folks who use Amazon to sell used copies of my old editions.

Bottom Line, customers are having difficulty finding my new books to even consider purchasing them. So, the two links are below; one is for the author page and the other is the sales page.

Amazon URLs for DB Cooper and the FBI 3rd Edition - paperback and e-book versions.
