D.B. Cooper's Wild Ride

It's just your average story, really. Man gets on plane, man hijacks plane, man releases hostages in exchange for $200,000, man jumps off plane with parachute and loot and is never heard from again. That is the insane story of D.B. Cooper, who hasn't been seen since his daredevil exit in 1977. Hundreds of leads have been pursued to get a hold of this guy and bring him to trial for his brazen extortion scheme. Nothing has ever panned out. Whether Cooper still walks among us remains a mystery. Maybe he's behind you RIGHT NOW.
