The reason for doing the hijacking vs robbing a bank..
What he could see from the stairs or looking out the cabin windows.
Did he see the ground approaching..
How the money was attached to himself.
How long to plan the hijacking and what was involved.
How would he get the money out of the hot zone.
Did he give a specific route for the plane.

Thanks to some help from the one and only Shutter, it looks like we are going to have Martin McNally on the show. Anyone have any questions for him?

This is great!  Looking forward to it.  Things I'd like to know.

How much did the DB Cooper hijacking motivate him?  Did he learn anything from it?
Does he think Cooper could have survived the exit, the pull, the descent, the landing, etc.

1. Does he attribute his survival to luck? Or is the difficulty of skydiving as a first timer overstated?

2. What were the precise conditions of his jump as he remembers them and how do they differ from those of the Cooper jump?

Where were you on the afternoon of November 24, 1971? Lol.

If he HAD to do it again, what would he do different?

Questions for Mr. McNally:

1. What was your prison experience like?

2. Did you benefit from it in any manner? For instance, fellow Cooper Copycat, Robb Heady, says that he used his prison time to recover from his PTSD that developed in Vietnam, and to read a lot and grow mentally.

3. Have you apologized to the flight attendants and crew that you held hostage? If you have, what was their reaction. Or, if not, why not?

I'll answer questions, maybe, as long as those don't require details about violence in prison; killings of guards & inmates. Federal Bureau of Prisons considered me: "worst of the worse".

I would be respectful in asking anything about his prison sentence. Martin wasn't an average inmate. he's a different breed and one of the reasons he was in for so long. Darren, you might want to find out how much of this he wishes to speak about publicly..he has told me a lot of things but I don't wish to make them public knowledge. IMO, he has paid his debt.

All good questions...nice to see the involvement. hopefully, Darren can fit them all in. hearing from copycats is about as close to Cooper as we can get.

You mean not relevant to Georger's investigation of the DB Cooper case, don't you?

Yes. You finally got something right - Congrats!  :congrats: :rofl:

You can explore the Jo Weber/Mars connexion if you want . . . . looking for some kind of bs that absorbs people's time and energy. Whatever suits your confrontational FRANCHISE.

It was a good show, I've listened to it twice already. Tim is surprisingly compelling.
