Netflix is bringing out another documentary. This time it is centred around one of life’s biggest mysteries. The infamous D.B. Cooper and the enduring legacy behind his 1971 supposed disappearance. D.B. Cooper: Where Are You?! The Synopsis:
In 1971, a skyjacker parachutes off a plane with a bag of stolen cash — and gets away with it. Decades later, his identity remains a compelling mystery.
The story of Cooper is an interesting one, to say the least. He demanded $200,000 and four parachutes after hijacking a flight out of Portland, Oregon in the middle of the night. Once the flight took off, he jumped from the airplane and was never seen or heard from again. He’s become a legend, seen as being a badass for being able to pull off something like this and to never get caught.
There’s been many conspiracy theories surrounding Cooper and now, thanks to “citizen sleuths,” the FBI claim they might have cracked what really happened to him. It wouldn’t be surprising, seeing as everyday people seem to do better at investigations than the FBI. The FBI closed the case on Cooper back in 2016, because they’re bad at everything.
Cooper has been in the spotlight again ever since HBO Max released their own documentary in 2020, titled The Mystery of D.B. Cooper and directed by John Dower.
