I recommend 6 beers, now, are these strapped or bundled together. I believe either way they taste good  :rofl:

After watching my Seahawks lose today the beer just doesn't taste the same. Go Hawks!
Some men see things as they are, and ask why? I dream of things that never were, and ask why not?

Nope. I guess I'm just old fashioned and will stick to light switches on the wall for now. I have purchased three separate Sonos sound speakers though. Much better than your normal blue tooth speaker, Imo. Thinking about doing some cameras for security purposes.

My cell phone is still banned from the forum.  It was fine before...nothing I can think of, and all other sites are fine.  I have cleared the Google cache.  Any other ideas?  I stay at my cabin often,  without a desktop computer.  Its an android phone.

Has anyone saw the documentary on Recca? Looks like it is available on iTunes as a 4 part documentary.

Obviously, this story conflicts with much that we know about the case, and I certainly do not consider him to be a viable suspect. But, it's still a Cooper documentary. Was curious if anyone had seen it and what they thought of it.

No, I haven't seen it, but I would like to. If anyone knows a way to see it - Hulu, Netflix, etc. Please let us know. I don't have iTunes, alas.

I can't find that IP address blocked anywhere...perhaps you can ask your provider if the IP can be changed...

Like the flying billboard for the Seahawks. The reign of the 4 engine jetliner is over. Boeing's sales of the 747-800 are dismal as are sales of the competing Airbus A380. No more 3 engine jets are being made. Two engines is the ideal configuration for good operating economics.

Engineers have proposed a "1.25" engine airliner with one big and one small engine stack mounted in the tail. The small engine would be used for taxying which burns a lot of fuel if big engines are used. It would also add to the thrust of the large engine during flight and, if the large engine failed, it would be able to get the plane to an airport safely. So far the FAA is lukewarm to the idea. They don't like the idea of more than a 50% power loss in the event of a single engine failure on a twin jet airliner.

Operational 727s are getting rare. The plane spotters get pretty excited when one is logged. There are still some cargo, charter and exec 727s flying but to the best of my knowledge, none remain in scheduled passenger service. Three engines and a flight engineer make a 727 a lot more expensive to operate than a 737 with similar payload and range.

Fedex was the last major operator of 727s and they retired their last one in June of 2013. You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Curtis Eng may no longer be at the FBI. My emails to him have bounced back, along with a notice that the email is not deliverable at the FBI.

I wonder if NOW he's willing to talk....

He's in the private sector now. I think you can find him on Linkedin.

Update on the Robert M. Blevins Investigation

I have begun my investigation of Robert Blevins. Today, I began contacting various media companies, journalists, and film producers who have worked with Blevins, or he says he is working with them. I have asked these folks for an analysis of what they think is going on with Blevins, and how exposed he may feel with an unsavory public image of Kenny Christiansen, ie: is his "movie deal" in jeopardy. I am also trying to ascertain if this so-called movie deal is real, and with whom.

I have also been offered legal assistance to procure an Order of Protection against Blevins, but for now that option is on a back burner.

In addition, a number of DB Cooper researchers have contacted me via "back channels" to shed more light on the kinds of interactions Blevins has had in Cooper World, especially with Hollywood and the media.

Also, I will be launching a public records sweep of Blevins to ascertain what kinds of past history he might have that would shed light on his current behavior.

Lastly, I will be visiting the Auburn PD to learn to what extent Blevins has been on their radar screen and to learn more about his alleged effort to have me arrested, or at least to forewarn the Auburn PD that I might be the guy who called in a bomb threat for their Auburn Days Festival several years ago.

Lastly lastly, Blevins has been pestering me all day with emails and accusations, and trying to find a way to post at the Mountain News. He has been thwarted on all fronts, and all of his missives are being recorded and placed in an evidentiary file.

As always, stay tuned.

Kudos Bruce. Please keep us posted.

For the record, I’ve had doubts for a while now about his movie deal. I think he’s straight up lying.

Cooper Movie Update

A number of back channel contributors has offered this piece as a potential source of Blevins' dream:

London-based, Minnow Productions, has agreed with Altitude Films to go forward on a DB Cooper story, according to 2017 report in Deadline Hollywood:

"Altitude has come aboard to handle international sales on The Mystery Of DB Cooper, helmed by John Dower (My Scientology Movie, Live Forever, Thriller In Manila) and based on a true story. On November 24, 1971, a man calling himself Dan Cooper, wearing a black suit and raincoat, carrying only a briefcase, walked up to the Northwest Orient desk at Portland airport and bought a $20 one-way ticket to Seattle. Once on the plane he hands a note to a stewardess saying he has a bomb in his briefcase and demands that a selection of parachutes and a briefcase containing $200K in cash are brought to him as soon as the plane lands in Seattle. The FBI hastily gather the ransom and parachutes then drive onto the tarmac at Seattle airport to meet the plane. Cooper allows the passengers to go free and instructs the plane to take off again. A half-hour later, somewhere over Washington State, Cooper jumps. He is never seen again. Within hours, the FBI embarks on the largest search operation in its history, using spy-planes, helicopters, submarines and speedboats. They draft in hundreds of soldiers and recreate the exact flight path and jump site. Despite this, Cooper is not found. Over the years, Cooper’s identity has always remained out of reach. But 46 years later, the search has been narrowed down to four compelling suspects. Altitude is launching at the AFM; Morgan Matthews is exec producer for Minnow films."

I have emails into Minnow to see if this project is the one that has RMB's knickers in a twist.

Robert always states it's an "LA" based production. he mentions that he has been in contact for over a year with the boys from the UK.

what I believe is possible is the production company had plans to buy the rights to the story of "Into The Blast" back in 2017. it's not clear whether or not if this was ever completed or an actual contract was signed. it's also possible it's a much smaller production company that has money issues and is seeking a larger company for backing. in between all of this you have Robert speaking for them telling what ever he feels like saying. nobody knows what "motion picture" implies coming from Robert. I don't see this being a box office type film..what reputable production company would even care about all the drama attached to a story they wish to buy or get involved with. half of Roberts claims can never be trusted so I guess we have to wait and see if it's true or not..his latest actions are telling, that's for sure...
