D.B. Cooper was an air pirate. He was a man who in Thanksgiving Eve of 1971, hijacked a plane, demanding $200,000, parachutes, and a refueling truck waiting for them upon arrival a Seattle-Tacoma Airport. Once they landed, the exchange was made and refueling of the plane began. He then told the crew to take him to Mexico City. About half an hour into the flight, he jumped out of the plane into the night, with his money and his parachute, and was never seen or heard from again. Nobody knows his real name, whether or not he survived the jump, or where he is today.
