The incredible tale of DB Cooper and the most fascinating hijacking
case in history

It is said DB Cooper lit a cigarette and ordered a bourbon and
soda before revealing the bomb in his briefcase with which he
threatened to blow up Northwest Orient Airlines Flight 305, en
route from Portland to Seattle.

It is November 24, 1971 - 47 years ago to the day - and Cooper,


smartly dressed in a dark suit with a pressed, white shirt, black
tie and mother of pearl tie pin, is in seat 18C on the Boeing 727.

After alerting a member of the cabin crew to his intentions to


hijack the plane, he explained his demands: $200,000 (about
$1.2m in today’s money) in “negotiable American currency”,
four parachutes (two primary and two reserve), and a fuel truck stood by in Seattle.

The pilot phones in Cooper’s demands to Seattle, which are duly agreed by the authorities. Northwest
Orient’s president, Donald Nyrop, authorises the payments and instructs all cabin crew to cooperate
fully with Cooper. It is worth noting at this point that DB Cooper is not the man’s real name. He
purchased his ticket under the name Dan Cooper, but due to a peculiar miscommunication, the media
christened him DB Cooper, and DB Cooper he has remained since.

At Seattle, Cooper is handed the 10,000 unmarked $20 bills (the FBI had made a microfilm
photograph of each of them) and the parachutes. He rejects military-issue chutes in favour of civilian
ones, operated by a ripcord. Once satisfied, Cooper allows all passengers and staff but the pilot and
copilot, a flight engineer and flight attendant to leave, and outlines his plan.

The smartly dressed man, described by flight attendant Tina Mucklow as “rather nice” and
“thoughtful and calm” begins his negotiations with the flight crew. He wants the aircraft to fly
southeast towards Mexico City as slow and low as possible without stalling (he says maximum 10,000
feet; planes normally cruise at around 36,000 feet). He asks for the landing gear to stay down, the
wing flaps to be at 15 degrees and the cabin to remain unpressurised.

After some debate, Cooper agrees to change his intended destinations to Reno, Nevada, as the flight
would not reach Mexico City under such flying conditions. Another sticking point - Cooper wants the
rear door left open and the steps lowered but Northwest say it is not safe to take-off with it extended.
The hijacker disagrees but acquiesces. He will lower it himself once in the air.
The flight takes off two hours later with the five on-board. Two fighter jets follow the 727, one above,
one below, so Cooper can’t spot them.

Once in the air, Cooper tells Mucklow to join the crew in the cockpit and remain there with the door
closed. At 8pm, 20 minutes into the flight, a warning light on the control panel indicates that the rear
steps have been lowered. Shortly afterwards the crew notices a change in the air pressure, suggesting
the back door is open. At 8.13pm, the aircraft experiences a wobble from the back, forcing the pilots to
readjust the plane's balance. Two hours later yet, the plane lands at Reno Airport. Surrounded by
state troopers, sheriff’s deputies and the FBI, the crew disembark but there is no sign of Cooper.

What do you think happened to Cooper?

4.- Complete the following sentences using the correct form of the verb left and the correct modal of
speculation.

a) Laura thinks it’s possible that Jackie left her phone on the table at the restaurant. She says,
“You _________________________ it on the table at the restaurant, but I’m just
guessing.

b) Sergio disagrees. He looked at everything on the table before they left and doesn’t remember
seeing her phone there. He thinks it is impossible that Jackie left it there, so he says “You
____________________ it there. I’m sure it is somewhere else. Did you check your purse?

c) Maya disagrees with Sergio. She remembers seeing the phone on the table, so he says, “You
_______________________ it there. That’s the only logical explanation I can think of.”
