In November 1971 a passenger on a short flight in the Pacific Northwest told a flight attendant he had a bomb in his briefcase. They ended up giving him $200k ($1.5 million in 2022) in ransom and some parachutes. He took them, jumped out the back of the plane over the Oregon wilderness, and has NEVER been caught!
This is the true story of the hijacking of Northwest Orient Airlines flight 305 by the man known as D. B. Cooper.
