The year 1971 is known for many things in American history. The microprocessor was created, NASA sent probes to Mars, and Greenpeace was born. But one of the most infamous stories in American History was the hijacking of a Northwest Orient Flight by one D.B. Cooper. Whether that was his real name or just an alias used by an ingenious criminal, the FBI is still investigating this unbelievable 46-year-old cold case.
Apparently, new clues have been discovered after all these years, and the authorities are hopeful that they may finally find out the truth.
Buying A Ticket
On November 24, 1971, a man arrived at a ticket counter and bought a one-way ticket from Portland, Oregon to Seattle on Northwest Orient Airlines. He was assumed to be in his early 40’s, and probably an executive, going on a business trip. He was described to be wearing a black suit, a white shirt and a black tie with an impressionable pearl tie clip.
