NOW THAT’S FUNNY
In 1971, a man calling himself Dan Cooper boarded a plane in Portland, Oregon which was bound for Seattle. He settled into his seat in the Boeing 747, ordered a bourbon and water, and lit up a cigarette. He then handed the stewardess a note saying that he had a bomb in his briefcase.
D.B. Cooper, as he has since been mistakenly referred to by the media, then insisted the stewardess sit down next to him. He demanded $200,000 in cash and some parachutes. The plane landed in Seattle, Cooper got his cash, and the plane took off again. Cooper jumped out, and when the plane touched down in Reno, he was gone. No one has ever found him, or figured out who he really was.
