Part 1 of the series aired last night & is about 1.5 hrs in duration. Part 2 airs tonight, Monday July 11th.
D.B. Cooper is obviously the only skyjacker case to go unsolved. In short, he boarded a Northwest flight (727) in 1971 and demanded $200k & 4
parachutes; after having he demands met, the flight took off for Reno and mid-flight he jumped, never to be seen or heard from again.
In come two investigative journalists, Tom Colbert & Jim Forbes, who present their case to History Channel (via a former FBI agent and investigative
journalist and crime author) for who they believe is D.B. Cooper. This is all done in hopes that the FBI will hear their case/evidence.
I've watched part 1 twice and find it very intriguing & believe anyone interested in this cold case would be interested.
What followed this show on the History Channel was an hour long show "Brad Meltzer's Decoded - D.B. Cooper"; which was also captivating. They
build a very good case for who they believe the actual D.B. Cooper to be based on a book authored by Robert Blevins. It's also well worth a watch
but first aired in 2011.
