Maybe the two are related? Maybe Carr is going to retire, then revisit Cooper on personal interest?

More on Larry Carr.

I called the Seattle FBI Division today to speak directly with Larry. First, I had to negotiate an obstinate "receptionist" who then passed me onto a obstructionist named "Steve" who tried to dissuade me from having any interest in Larry or Norjak. Steve finally relented when I told him I was an established online journalist who has written a book on Cooper and have heard from multiple sources that Larry is back on the trail of DB Cooper. At that point, Steve asked me to write an email to You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login and ask for an interview with Larry, and that "the higher ups" will let Steve know if they approve my request....

I'll keep y'all posted for as long as the Forum is open.

Meanwhile Ckret is free to talk to whomever he wants whenever he wants on his own terms. Didnt he initiate conversations with Eric Ulis, on his own?   

So much time and space has been devoted or wasted on suspects, other vital issues in the case have gone totally ignored. If Cooper survived, how did he escape being detected immediately after the hijacking. An answer to that may couple with how Cooper managed to hook up with flight 305 in the first place - he said he had a grudge but not against your airlines (whatever that means). He said flight 305 in particular was 'the right flight in the right place and time'! Where was Cooper when he was checking flights for a possible hijack and extortion? He has to be somewhere where he has access to this information so he can select and act rather quickly. Was he in Portland, Vancouver, or Seattle waiting and watching? There isnt a single 302 about any of this so far!  ... Was Cooper sitting in a homeless camp nearby watching, gathering info, and waiting ?  Or was he somewhere reviewing actual airline schedules? Or as some believe, did he just happen to walk into the Portland Airport on that day only to learn an NWA flight 305 was going to happen, and suddenly there was his opportunity (with his bomb already under his arm) ?

Shutter, I'm not sure why this is happening, but I hope that all is well in your world and that this isn't due to some kind of issues that you may be experiencing, health or otherwise. Thank you for doing this for the last several years. I've been on several forums over the years, not just DB Cooper ones, and this one has been top notch. Hopefully, if this does in fact happen, something will rise up and pick up where this one left off. It will be a tough act to follow for sure. Not sure what that will be though. Facebook is not the right place for something like this, totally wrong format for any kind of deep dive on any subject. Dropzone is pretty much dead now, thanks to RMB and any forum that he attempts to put together (which I'm sure he will attempt...again) will be a non-starter for most everyone here, and my ass will certainly not be found there. Thanks again, I know it hasn't always been the easiest thing to deal with, but this forum has been a great ride.

Shutter: Like Parrot said, I hope all is well in your world.  This forum is like no other, and frankly can't be replaced.  That goes for content and management.  The Facebook page has been a great addition, and I'm enjoying it.  However, this site is the one available that limits membership to those truly knowledgeable about the case.  If this is a money issue, then I'm sure we can collect enough to fund the site permanently.  I'm happy to donate.  If it is a time thing, then I hope we can all agree on a way to transfer the posts and management to someone neutral and dedicated enough to keep this site going.

In his book, Dr. Edwards discusses the issues involving the selection of NWA 305 at length.  Read his book for the entire discussion.  But one reason that has not been discussed here previously to my knowledge is that NWA 305 terminated at Seattle and all the passengers were going to disembark there.  Cooper wanted to get the passengers off the plane and out of the way and that would happen in Seattle.

That could happen with any flight anywhere. Cooper said nothing of this kind. All Cooper said was it was the right plane at the right place .... whatever that adds up to.

But where was Cooper as he was looking for a plane to hijack, building his bomb in advance. He presented himself at Portland neat and clean with bomb in hand. He did not stink or show signs of living in a homeless camp? He presented himself as being a worldly person. He is not a wetback from Mexico who does not speak English ...

No, it could not "happen with any flight anywhere"!  You need to do some actual research before dismissing things out of hand.  Your second paragraph above does not have anything to do with my post.

The Seattle FBI media department just turned down my request to interview Larry Carr.
