    I hear the name DB and all I can think of is that episode of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia where they find a baby in a dumpster and name him D.B. for Dumpster Baby, maybe that’s DB Cooper’s true origin story

    This is completely late and possibly very wrong, so correct me if you find any inconsistency. In my theory, this guy was a complete buffoon that got lucky.
    The biggest clue to this is that he openly told the attendant " oh yeah, I have a bomb". Being a person with experience, you would have said " Look at this as soon as you can." That, taking the bourbon and soda, you can easily take evidence from the glass. Leaving the tie onboard, which is another example of leaving evidence. Not doing research of how to properly use a parachute- another amateur move. Since he was in the east coast in bad weather, he could have been catapulted into the ocean and been made fish food. Which could be supported,as the money was found on shore years later. No sane person would leave that much money unaccounted for.

    Did anyone ever think about why he maybe asked for the plane to land in Mexico city because he wanted to distract anyone who tried to track him? That's probably why he jumped out before landing

    What if he never left the plane, as the 2 fighter jet pilots behind him claimed to never see him jump, what if he released the door and threw a pouch of money out only to later walk off the plane, he could’ve hid in the electrical haul, because the fbi never would’ve looked there ( they only would’ve looked in the luggage and passenger part) 😂
