D.B. Cooper, the legendary skyjacker who parachuted from a jetliner with $200,000 in loot over Oregon in 1971 and vanished, came to Stockton afterwards, a new documentary says. Cooper — under his real name, Robert W. Rackstraw — had a sister here.
The Real Story behind DB Cooper. On November 24, 1971, a man calling himself Dan Cooper pulled off one of the largest unsolved heists in modern history when he hijacked a Northwest Airlines flight and then parachuted into oblivion.
Maybe slightly off topic but none the less relevant to paper money. As most of you probably already know the majority of DB Coopers money was never found, only three packets were ever found on the shoreline of the Columbia River in 1980.
