History: Coopers Capers the Escaped Hijacker
History In 1971 Cooper hijacked a 727 plane holding up the plane with a bomb threat. He escaped by parachute into the night with $200,000 strapped to his chest leaving only a mother-of-pearl tie clip in his wake. The search termed “norjak” by the FBI took place around the Lakeside town of Ariel. Did we mention he demanded 4 parachutes!
