The saga of hijacker D.B. Cooper, who parachuted out of a Northwest 727 in November of 1971 after getting $200,000 in ransom money never to be seen again, might be near an end. The famous outlaw’s real name is not known. In fact, D.B. Cooper was actually a misunderstanding of his alias, which was written as “Dan Cooper” on his ticket stub. Cooper became a folk hero, a guy that got away with a daring crime and a lot of loot and didn’t hurt anybody in the process. It remains, according to reports, the only unsolved hijacking in American history.
