He jumped out of a moving airplane 4,000 feet above Washington state. Why? This man, known as D.B. Cooper, was hijacking this airplane, Northwest Airlines Flight 305, on November 24, 1971. He jumped into a horrendous thunderstorm in the middle of the night and never was seen again. His demands were $200,000 cash and 2 sets of parachutes. Approximately $5,800 of this money was found nine years later on the banks of the Columbia River by an eight year old boy. The FBI does not think Cooper is still alive, but they do want to know who he was, or is.
