On the evening of Nov. 24, 1971, a man who gave his name as D.B. Cooper boarded Northwest Airlines' Flight 305 in Portland, Oregon, and took a seat to the rear of the plane. A short time after take-off, Cooper passed a handwritten note to the flight attendant demanding $200,000 in small bills, and flashed a glimpse of what appeared to be an explosive device with red cylinders and wires neatly packed in his briefcase.

Cooper's demands were promptly met. When the Boeing 727 passenger jet landed at the Seattle-Tacoma Airport, officials from the airlines delivered to him the sum of $200,000 in a leather bag, collected from several Seattle banks, and four parachutes from nearby McCord Air Force Base.
