    Now come on...let's be fair here. Marla isn't the ONLY person in Cooperland who has had 'disrespect and hostility' directed at them. But let's bypass all that for a moment and look at reality. If Marla was actually telling the truth...or even if she got the whole incident wrong somehow...then why didn't the other three still-living people who were at the house in Sisters, Oregon that week either corroborate her story, (especially her mother) or set Marla straight on what actually happened? This is a big problem. Marla has said her father knew what happened. But he passed away years prior to Marla going public. So what about her mother? Mother would not confirm anything regarding Marla's story, and the entire family was there that week for Thanksgiving. In fact, Marla said that her uncle did not leave Sisters until the following Saturday after the hijacking. Don't you think at some point Marla's mother would have known the facts, if her FATHER already did? If her father knew, and was telling his eight-year-old daughter he knew LD was the hijacker, don't you think he would have told his wife as well? Besides, how could you keep such a secret in families? We're talking about a family of at least eight people who all gathered in the same house from prior to the hijacking until at least the following Saturday. And today, nobody who was there knows a thing, or will back Marla on this story? It is beyond reasonable belief, especially after Marla went national news and her mother attended some of the interviews. Instead of a witness, she was a silent partner and mostly looked unhappy with the job, which Marla undoubtedly recruited her to do. When I requested the Ten Questions for Marla Cooper interview, I was very nice about it. I gave her a decent chance to answer the obvious questions that everyone else had been asking already. She was very hostile in her responses, as if she was angry someone would actually try to pin her down. And she dodged my question asking why her mother didn't support...or for that matter...set Marla straight on what really happened that week. It was as if Marla's mom was simply embarrassed by the whole thing. You did not see Marla's Facebook postings. I did. And I took copies of them. If you consider the idea that Marla was wrong about the whole thing, that all family members who were with her that week won't back her story, and she's simply either lying or wrong...than what possible purpose could she serve at a Cooper convention...other than just another person presenting a made-up story without a single witness? (And before anyone tries jumping in with 'that's the same deal with Christiansen', I assure you we have witnesses and their testimony is documented. Doesn't necessarily mean he's Cooper, but we do have that.) Anyone wanting to know whether LD was Cooper shouldn't even be speaking to Marla. They should be talking to the only living adult who was there the entire week...her MOTHER. Now she would be a good guest speaker. She is the only living member of the family who knows the truth one way or another. Perhaps the reason Marla's mom (or her brother or sister for that matter) won't back her story is because mom could be old fashioned and not willing to lie, even for a book deal for her daughter. If I asked my mom to back me on a baloney story, she would tell me to take a long walk off a short pier. Marla's mom could be the same way.

    Latest Flight

    Leaving tomorrow for the desert. Next flight will be on Saturday 10/26. If you look on the Exos Aerospace Face book page there should be some type of live stream Sat morning. It will probable get off some time between 11:00 and 12:00 MT. Last one was... entertaining. Read that scary as shit. I'm hoping that this one will be much less exciting. We had a short but very good hover test. Simulator is looking much better. I'm feeling pretty good about this launch. I'm hoping this one will make altitude with no problems. Lee

    With the old site I could see a list of topics to which I made a comment ..most recent activity to oldest. Not topics I started and not a list of my posts, both of which are accessible now. I referred to that list often and sometimes I made a random comment in an interesting topic just so it would appear in that list. It was fairly easy to search for, and find, what I was looking for. Don't know if that would be useful enough to anyone else. Also, wolfriverjoe's suggestion about referring to post numbers was useful, as was showing the quotes and to whom within a thread that someone was responding. That made following a thread more coherent. Oh, and the thing about the older pics/attachments, too.

    Thanks Flyjack. I recall reading something about a jettisonable tailcone on some DC 9s. 377
  22. FLYJACK

    DB Cooper

    yes, my read was that LaPoint didn't jump from a DC-9 rear Airstair but instead from a removable panel. Not all DC-9s had aft airstairs, the ones without have a plug door. https://www.nytimes.com/1972/01/22/archives/exparatrooper-is-held-in-hijacking.html "According to an airline spokesman in San Francisco, the hijacker apparently first opened an emergency door on the side of the plane but saw that he might hit the engines if he bailed out there and ordered a little‐used rear door opened. The door is under hollow fiberglass cone that is a attached to the plane's that is make it more aerodynamic."

    I jumped from a DC 9-21 in 2006. The ventral airstair door wasn't small. Are you saying that there was another door that LaPoint used? 377

    DB Cooper

    I thought Marla's written answers were, as usual, quite articulate. Sure there was some sarcasm, but that is certainly understandable given the disrespect and hostility thats been directed towards her. I don't think her uncle was Cooper, but I think her story reflected childhood memories not made-up facts. I talked with her at some length at Grays Portland symposium and didn't detect any indicia of lying. I asked her a lot about the CB walkie talkies used by LD and her answers told me without any doubt that she really saw these in use. We really should try to get her to speak at Coopercon 2019. She lights up a room. Very attractive, intelligent, articulate and willing to answer tough questions. It has occurred to me that LD wasn't Cooper but was trying to find Cooper's loot right after the news broke and before the authorities found it. One could get pretty banged up searching through thick brush at night. 377

    Lee, I really appreciate the analysis. I was thinking about a Triathlon but wanted softer openings. Somebody told me that Tri's with the 5.0 mod open better. Is that true? Again, thanks for the info...and I will take all of this into consideration before switching canopies. Cheers!
