One the most enduring mysteries of the 1970s is the hijacking of a Boeing 727 on November 24, 1971, by an unknown man only known as D.B. Cooper. While on a flight from Portland, Oregon to Seattle, Washington, Cooper told the flight attendant that he was armed with a bomb before demanding $200,000 in ransom. After receiving the money in Seattle, Cooper instructed the pilot to fly to Mexico before parachuting over southwestern Washington. He was never identified, and only a small amount of the ransom money has ever been found.
