On this day in 1971

D.B. Cooper hijacked a plane, then jumped out of it with 21 lbs of $20 bills strapped to his torso.

And, despite the manhunt, he was never heard from again.



I would put up some excerpts, but it is just too fascinating a story. As the radio told me this morning, that's why you are no longer allowed to board a plane with a parachute. Do yourself a favour and go read about the classic of modern day mysteries.

"The world's only unsolved skyjacking". Magic.

I'm envious of that man...

I always wanted to try out hot air balloon vigilante.
