....................................he didn't bail out with quite that much, and the date is wrong.
D. B. Cooper (aka Dan Cooper), around midnight on November 24 / 25, 1971, after receiving a ransom payout of US $200,000, jumped from the back of a Boeing 727 as it was flying over the Pacific Northwest of the United States, somewhere over the Cascade Mountains, possibly over Woodland, Washington.
His body was never found, and only $5,880 of the ransom has been recovered. The skyjacking continues to have an impact on popular culture, including references to or inspiration by Cooper in books, film, and music.

“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
