|D B Cooper Story – A Jet Captain For The Northwest Orient Airline
|The books subject claims DB Cooper was his father.
“Around Thanksgiving (2010) my wife Robin and I were sitting on the sofa watching the 11:00 pm late news when they announced it was once again the anniversary of the “D.B. Cooper skyjacking event.
On television, they always talk about it…this time they showed the original film footage of the airliner, taken during a stormy night in Seattle around 40 years earlier. In addition, they also displayed the composite sketch of the skyjacker, drawn from the memories of the few passengers and crew members to have observed him on the night of the skyjacking.
“Look”, I told my wife, “That guy was my father. I swear to God, he’s the one who did it.” She was astonished. I went on to tell her my Dad’s brother, Bud, was in on it also. That he was a jet captain for the very airline, Northwest Orient, that was hijacked!”
