DB Cooper / Re: General Questions About The Case

          Not sure where to pose this question? Maybe the flight path thread?   Has there been any discussion, in the past, concerning the Sage radar system?  How much do we know about it?  Could the elevation of flight 305  have possibly been a problem for the system?  Any reference to resource material for the Sage system would be appreciated.

Steven Stills auditioned to be a Monkee but was rejected. With his then bad teeth he didn’t look the part. I like Stills a lot but can’t see him as a Monkee. He was too much on the deep and dark side for their comparatively fluffy music.

I remember that about Stephen Stills auditioning for the Monkees. He did make it onto TV, though. A young Buffalo Springfield, including Stills and Neil Young, appeared in a couple scenes on an early episode of Mannix, playing Bluebird and For What It's Worth. Those scenes can be found on Youtube.

Mannix had a couple of the coolest cars on TV, but he burnt his fingers on a piece of toast!

Mannix was one of my favorite shows as a kid.

Don Burnworth was an interesting guy. For those of us who had the pleasure of chatting with him, he was a delight.

His personal life was a train wreck at times, but he a helluva pilot.

Yo, Bruce, did he tell you about his ex-wife being a psychic? That's a little tidbit I found in the ole paper archives. Burnworth is interesting. I have to assume the FBI investigated him and found reason to eliminate him, but boy he looks a lot like that composite B rendering, and boy, he sure fits the original psychological profile done for the "In search of..." Leonard Nimoy documentary. At the time of the hijacking, Burnworth was a bitter "ex commercial" pilot, etcetera.

I think Cooper probably was a bitter former pilot or airline employee, though I'm hardly unique in this belief.

No, Don said a LOT about his ex, Bernice, but I don't recall him claiming she was psychic. Psychotic, maybe, but not skilled in the paranormal.

In 1971, Don Burnworth was not bitter. Maybe in 1972 when UAL fired him, or when Bernice got him locked up for eight days in the San Mateo hoosgah. Everyone, including the FBI, agrees Don was a delightful match to the composite sketches, but the FBI was apparently satisfied that he was not DBC since they let him go after interrogating him. Don claimed they still harbored some doubts, though and placed a mole in his cell to hear if Don spilled the beans during a quiet moment.

As someone from the UK, i'm completly indifferent. There's pros & cons to having a monarch. She was a very personable & practical lady who did her job well, but personally i don't agree with having a royal family at all. I'll be looking through the tie particle list and not watching the TV.
