    Any D.B. Cooper sleuths here?

    I have a theory but would like to read yours
    did D. B. Cooper, AKA Dan Cooper, pull off the perfect heist? Did he survive the jump? Did he even exist? And where is the money?

    A lot of us would like to know where the money is. One boy found money, but not all of it. He gave it to the FBI.

    With the exception of that money the boy found, none of the other bills have ever turned up

    whatever theory one may hold, it must account for the cash the boy found - and why no more
    and apparently the man was seen no more

    I have jumped a bit and would never want to alight in trees in the daytime, let alone at night
    hanging in the trees with something broken ?

    Exactly why I think Cooper never left the plane

    I think he hid in a crawl space near the rear door.
    with the door down, the pilots would not ascend higher so there was no fear of a lack of oxygen. He bounced on the stair and tossed two of the parachutes out, one with a small bundle of money, hoping it would be found and they would search the forest for him.
    Then after the plane landed, he just waited till the coast was clear and climbed out and walked away.

    I have flown on these planes.
    Do you have a drawing showing the crawl space and access panel ?
    What fasteners on the panel ? Operable from the inside ?

    No, I have not gotten that deep into it, it is just an idea at this point, an intriguing one.
    I find it interesting that Cooper would trust any of the chutes provided for him as operational or even rigged with a transmitter, and as you know, jumping at night over to unfamiliar territory, seems like a folly to me.

ID:	1748926 This is the best drawing I can get off the web, but it looks like there could be enough space for someone to hide, access is another point however, as you indicated.
