    They said that one of the parachutes were a military one where he couldn’t steer and the other was sewn shut . My only problem with this is the fact that he asked for 4 of them . What about the other 2?

    It doesn’t make any sense there’s a reason he had 2 of each parachute so he didn’t get scammed he got 2 of each so he had a chance to survive and the problem is that there were 5 jets around the bowing 157 100 how did no one see him because the plain has light they at least should’ve seen his figure

    Maybe he never left the plane, if he was an engineer for boeing, he knew the plane to the smallest details, threw some of the money out of the plane and because it was a night, the crew can´t see nothing. They suspect that he jumped, because they feel the pressure change in the cabin and hear some noise. My opinion: D.B. Cooper was more wise that you think and have planned everything and lived/live with the breathtaking story somewhere in the backround.

    We all know that he died in Fox River while trying to escape with Micheal and the other boys.

    So my theory is he had them fly to Mexico from Seattle cause the flight path crossed the Columbia River where I believe his intentions was to jump & land in the river where he had someone to pick him up at the closest rest stop on the adjacent freeway knowing a general landing zone (as unless the plane was diverted extremely) a flight from Seattle to Mexico gives a range of landing areas or crossing points. Then I believe the eyewear he used was military aviation or equal qaulity to help him see somewhat & he most likely had prior experience parachuting (probably served in the military) Knowing cover of night & altitude made him near invisible ,due to having lil visibility the river offered the best landing as he was basically at mercy of the night. The money discovered on Tena Bar either was lost during or thrown out as a detourant possibly stashed later. I wouldn't doubt if McCoy was actually the accomplice but later tried to repeat solo & was caught. As the plane must've traveled again somewhere over Utah the state McCoy resided in.
    Thus why the family identified the object in the Cooper case linking the two together during the one heist imo. All just my crazy speculation & wondering mind thinks but just a thought!

    Yeah the video definitely needs crappy
    commentary that ruins the flow of the case.
    Of course buzzfeed can’t do anything right, just this once I could have held back my reservations due to the stunts they pull regarding their left wing ideals and other nonsense, but no, they have to ruin a video about an actually interesting true story with needless talking between two unlikable hosts.
