    Obviously a horrible crime for the hostages and the tax payer, etc. Yet something about the fact that he pulled it off without actually hurting anyone makes me respect and to a degree admire the guy.

    One of the great modern mysteries of our time.

    I like to think he got away and maybe he did, but bailing out of a jet in a bad storm would make it highly likely he didn't.

    If he did, he pulled off a helluva stunt! :woot:

    I remember back in the 80's when a guy..I think he was a narc of some stripe, bailed out of a plane over Tennessee with a buttload of cocaine strapped to his rig..I guess he was planning on selling the stuff once he got away.

    He did some MAJOR miscalculating on that one, as he loaded himself down too heavily with toot and was found piled up dead in someone's backyard in Knoxville..The plane crashed in the park east of there.

    About six months later, somebody found a dead bear in the park, apparently the idiot must have dumped part of his load and the bear found it, then proceeded to camp out over the coke and ate it until it killed him..Poor bear.

    That made me laugh more than I'd like to admit :rofl:

    There are probably worse ways for a bear to go, you know. :metal:

    I've heard stories about the bars over there having D.B. Cooper parties on the date when he made his jump, and D.B. slipping into some of these parties in disguise and hanging out with the crowd! :fever:

    Where I live it's not unusual for someone to head out to the mountains and never be seen again.

    Happens more often than one might think, it's a huge country out here..It's apparently kind of the same where D.B. bailed out.
