      @ctrlaltcreate The fact that several bricks of money not inside of any bag were found buried on that beach gives a strong indication that he survived. The simple explanation is that they got the drop zone wrong, he jumped later than they thought, landed near that beach and buried the money. Simply walked into town and rented a hotel that very night. It's not that hard.

      @ctrlaltcreate I very much doubt if he could calculate the exact spot he would land without knowledge from the cockpit, I also doubt if special forces are trained to jump in the conditions he was supposed to have jumped in .despite what others have said I believe he was still in the plane when it landed.

    25:02 Holy shit. Weber died in 1995, and told that to his wife on his deathbed, right? By 1995, the hijacker would have been known as ‘D. B. Cooper’ for over two decades. But that wasn’t his name, was it? The hijacker checked into his flight as *Dan* Cooper, and the D. B. moniker came up _after._
    If Weber had been just chasing clout, he would have told his wife that he was ‘D.B’ Cooper. But he didn’t. He said he was *Dan* Cooper.
    Throughout the video, we saw how quickly the D. B. Cooper moniker spread. Even newspapers _at the time_ used it. Who, in 1995, would have remembered his name was actually Dan?
    Who else-but Cooper himself?

      He's as likely as anybody else to be D.B. though regardless. The news did already state that Dan was the real name on the ticket that day, and it wouldn't be able much for him to simply lie like half the millions of others have done on their deathbed to their lives ones about being criminal masterminds or whatnot. His wife (this isn't meant to be rude) doesn't even remember **exactly** what his last words were, she was shocked and had to write down the words herself therefore forgetting everything else that he had talked about. That puts a big stain on the credibility over the whole thing.
      Again, you could be right because any slightly olive guy alive during that time could be him lol (if he 100% survived) that's the fun of it all. But there's many more suspects a foot that also have very compelling arguments even better than Weber's that wasn't brought up here, if you can looking into those will shock you with the similarities to what we presume D.B.'s profile picture as.

He's a test pilot in the RCAF, and when I was 13 years old, I called the Seattle FBI and informed them of the connection after having noticed mentions of the character in Tin-Tin detective books at my local library, 10 miles from the Canadian border. Turns out, someone else called them with the tip just days before. They had 35 years and they beat me by days. Sigh.

    It’s crazy to think that a man with no coordination on his exact location managed to have the courage to jump out of a 727 with a old military parachute and a dummy chute without a plan, Cooper was calm and strategic so it seems he jumped out knowing exactly the area which he was by some miracle and survived, either he was an extremely smart individual with an experienced background, or it was truly a leap of faith and wether DB cooper died or lived remains a mystery, I believe it’s the first one because the fact he provided so much information about what he did and didn’t know he probably mislead the authorities highly and watched these stories about himself with a grin on his face.

      @Jaspersonality That's a fair point. Maybe he realized that after the heist (if he survived)? Even if the case went cold, someone would probably look up the list of missing bills at some point and find a match. Hell, we keep wondering if he survived, but we never ask if he managed to keep the money after the drop. If he did live, who's to say he didn't have to abandon the cash? He was stuck in the woods, so I imagine holding onto those massive bags of bills isn't as important as trying to fend off wildlife from mauling him, or staving off hypothermia because he didn't pack anything more than a suit and loafers.

      @Commander Jason I don't mean that he directly put the bills into a bank. I mean that if he ever used them, they'd end up in circulation and eventually make their way through banks (and cash registers, etc.). It'd be really unlikely for them to never show up, unless he never spent them.

      Within months of this hijacking, 5 other men did copycat hijackings, and all 5 of them survived their parachute escapes. There are also 3 other men who attempted and survived hijackings/parachute escapes under very similar circumstances as Cooper, and with little to no injuries afterwards. Some of them even had *worse* conditions than him, like double the windspeed, colder weather, wearing even less protective clothing, or having no pre-existing familiarity with parachuting/planes. What I'm saying is, it's actually totally possible he survived, despite how unlikely it seems.
      Also as of 2020, there is some new evidence that the cash was buried or went into the water at least a few months after the hijacking. Apparently algae that only blooms during the springtime was found on the bills, which would be at least 3 months after the hijacking. All three bundles that were found were in tact, except for 10 bills missing from one of the bundles, which some people think was removed intentionally.

    My theory for this is that Cooper is a French-Canadian who formerly lived in Quebec (maybe) and then lived to Portland. He was a former Paratrooper who served during Vietnam War.
    Due to the military background he was more familliar with the older military parachute so he used that instead of the newer parachute and accidently used the dummy parachute which caused him to lose it when he jumped. After he landed he looked for the money but didnt find it. Tina bar I have no idea... After he searched for it he just started to walk to Portland and continued his life.

    Even now a couple of years later, this remains one of my all-time favourite videos on KZclip! My 6 year old daughter is even getting into the Cooper story!!!
    I’ve always tended to gravitate towards Weber as the guy, but nothing is definitive enough. I’d sure like to know if the FBI came up with any suspects that would have fit the description of not having survived the jump (since many have concluded Cooper didn’t make it). Are there any suspects that were never seen alive again after the day of the hijacking?

      @Santumi Apparently he had a large brown paper bag with him that no one ever saw inside of. Some of the investigators theorized that he may have had protective skydiving gear in it, like boots, gloves, goggles, and possibly a helmet. He also had a raincoat with him at the time, and I personally feel like he could've been wearing long-johns under his clothes.
      Also, literally 2 months later someone did a similar hijacking in Colorado. It was January then, so even colder, and the guy was only wearing a shirt, pants, and cowboy boots(lol). He landed in the snow and was perfectly fine, no injuries/hypothermia/frostbite/etc.

I hope you cover more mystery cases and keep doing the good work and in the process enjoy doing it.I wish you can post more regularly,at least a video every month.

      @Darthvader2345 i didn't say anything that wasn't true at the time. Nothings wrong with my comment I just implied living long isn't uncommon. And she did live a long life thats a fact.

      @Jcoops No one can predict the future why dig up a comment from months ago? Not relevant anyways regardless may she rest in peace.

    Always come back here every once and a while just to remind myself what a fucking amazing documentary looks like. And *free to view* no less! Well done.

    I don't remember who said it but I remember a theory I read a long time ago which stated that Dan may have been a CIA agent who simply did it for the thrill (or perhaps as a training mission but that's less likely). It'd explain the familiarity with a plane the CIA had used, it'd explain why no money was ever spent since it wasn't about the money, it'd explain the burried money since maybe he went back and burried it years later for the fun of it, it'd explain where he got the bomb from and it'd explain Dan keeping his cool through all this obviously stressfull situation. The only thing it doesn't explain is how he survived the landing or how little he cared about the flight path, however I've personally said before that the only evidence for Dan jumping when it was officially thought he did was a "vibration" in the plane that isn't guranteed to have been caused by Cooper.

    If a D.B falls in the woods and no-one's around to see him, does he make a sound?

      Well, you said "see him" and "sound", so I do suppose you could hear him without seeing him
