    The last DZ I jumped at had the first part of that. We would all agree on a landing direction at the loading area, but once everyone started looking at the stupid spinning arrow all bets were off.

    Riser design & toggle fires

    It doesn't have to be a metal pin to be dependent on it, could just be a straight tab instead. The act of pulling the cat eye through the ring, and then putting the nose of the toggle through the cat eye and into its pocket locks the cat eye(and toggle) to the ring. Even if the toggle comes out of its keeper pocket, the line tension is enough to keep the brakes fully stowed. Since the cat eye has been set under the lower ring the brake settings remained unchanged until you pop the toggles. Contrast that with just putting the toggle nose through the cat eye and into its pocket, laying on top of the ring, then there is nothing to keep anything in place if the toggle comes out of its keepers.

    There is conflicting info... typical NORJAK Cossey claims all the chutes were his, Hayden claims the back chutes were his and the one left on the plane and returned to him is confirmed to be his.. Hayden's chutes were packed by Cossey. Cossey was used as an expert to eliminate chutes found after NORJAK. Is somebody lying? or assuming.. There is another explanation,, both Hayden and Cossey supplied two back chutes each and only two were given to Cooper. Either both were from Hayden or one from Hayden and one from Cossey... So, which chute did Cooper actually jump with? Hayden believes it was his second (missing) chute and Cossey believed it was his chute. Did the FBI mix this up or are they withholding info??

    Rigger-Examiner here. It's not dangerous for the person who asked for the ripcord to be moved. We do it all the time for people who have physical limitations, and we do it sometimes for people who just have different preferences.

    Aff footage? Is it frowned apon?

    I give all my students footage of their jumps. I find it helps them improve and learn from the video. Of course sometimes there is a camera problem, but 99% of my students get their footage if they want it.

    Found it was most certainly a B-8 parachute... thrown on by the crew for bailouts. Hahneman on the aircrew would have been familiar with the B-8. Cooper used an NB-8, but something has always bothered me.. the chutes belonged to Hayden, packed by Cossey but he claimed he altered the location of the ripcord. Does it make sense that a rigger would modify a ripcord for somebody else's chute? wouldn't that be dangerous?

    None of this belongs here...just more drama.

    DB Cooper

    What statement? The one where you say you are 'fully prepared to dish out dirt on others offline if necessary'? You mistake drama for the truth. If you were truly seeking the truth, you wouldn't spend time hacking on others doing the same. And you might support something Cooper-related without regard to going personal on the person doing the organizing.

    I stand fully behind my statement and will now return to a place where one doesn't have to constantly engage in drama. I'm researching the DB Cooper case. I do this as a hobby. I'm not looking for fortune or fame. I'm looking for answers to a decades old mystery. this creates a road block into that avenue.

    Some News: I had to work helping out this senior lady all day until like 8PM. When I got home, I barely had time to eat and then fell asleep until late. Got up, created the previous post. Then...I go to my email. Already four different people, all from the Castle Rock/Kelso/Vancouver area, are applying to go on the Cooper Placard Area search campout. Two of them said "I have a metal detector". ALL of them said they were fans of the Cooper case. Instant approval. I may have created a monster. Fortunately, I found out we CAN allow more than 14 people, but at some point I will have to take down the video and stop accepting applications. It's encouraging though. I only put up the video yesterday.

    *The reports of my evilness have been greatly exaggerated...* Come on, Shutter. Don't sugar coat it. Give it to people straight. This type of stuff is going nowhere. And when you 'provide things offline,' all that happens is that those people usually end up contacting me and then it becomes a big merry go round. But we're not going away anytime soon, and I personally have not given up on eventually solving the case, or at least presenting to the public a reasonably sound theory on who Cooper probably was, and how he actually pulled off his little stunt without getting caught. The one big problem with exploring the Cooper case is that there is a great deal of jealousy, competition, and animosity going between some of the major players in this exploration. I give several examples of this in my almost-completed autobiography, Cooperland. It's finished now, except I'm waiting to see what happens on the upcoming movie. ('They' keep saying it's coming, and I should be patient. We will see.) Recently, I revealed to someone well-known in Cooperland WHO exactly signed on board in January to help produce the movie. You've seen him on the big screen and on television. He was in Jurassic World and 16 other films. It won't be long before the person I revealed his identity to is allowed to tell everyone else. We agreed on that, and that will be in June. Unfortunately, all this in-fighting, back-biting, whatever you want to call it, just damages other things people try to do in the case. Like the convention last year, for example, where attendance should have been better than it was. Or like the event supposedly coming in November, where at least two of the Decoded cast have already bailed on it, and more people are likely to do the same thing. The two main organizers (Jim Brunberg at Mississippi Studios and Bryan Ward at the V23 Brewery) came to me for a plan on a Cooper Party in December 2018 (to be held the following November), and I gave them The Plan From Heaven, which would have packed the house easily. For some inexplicable reason, they suddenly decided to turn the whole party into another convention, and then turned everything over to Eric alone, instead of doing the whole thing by committee, which would have been a lot smarter. An event that would have included at least four major stars in Cooperland, and a genuine Hollywood star, will now end up being a watered-down, boring, blah-blah speechfest with the same old faces, that will be lucky to get a hundred attendees. The original plan I ran out for them would have filled a 2,000-seat venue (at least) and then some. I was asked, and I delivered. However, I did try to roll with the new plan. But my suggestions on how to improve all this, if it were to be a convention instead of a party, were completely ignored by Eric, who didn't even bother to answer my emailed suggestions. Now it becomes another mutual back-slapping party with boring speakers, instead of the big-time Cooper Party it was supposed to be, and the major players are yawning and going elsewhere that weekend. Not just the cast of Decoded, but that producer kid I mentioned, who is barely 23 years old and has starred in 17 pictures already, along with a TV series. He's the one I met in January on Queen Anne Hill in Seattle for a few hours to discuss how the Cooper movie will be done. He was either going to appear in person, or if he was busy on a set somewhere, at least send a video for the audience. He's pretty popular, and just the video alone would have filled a lot of seats. We even offered to put up between $500-$1,000 in Amazon gift cards for a Cooper lookalike contest. That was ignored as well. At this point, I basically gave on trying to help anyone involved in this event, and I certainly will not attend. Anyone put in charge of that event who tries to go it alone definitely has a personal agenda, and personal agendas, unlike true for-the-public events, don't get people to show up on the weekend of Black Friday shopping. What's the point of holding a Cooper event if the public doesn't show...unless you have the idea that because you are in charge, it's the perfect time to hawk your wares, instead of going for the public interest? Because no one could cooperate (as usual), none of the things that were originally planned for the November event will happen now. I had to tell all of those people I arranged to appear that the plan had been changed, and that I had no intention of wasting my time with another program like that, a program completely different from the one I was asked by Jim Brunberg and V23 Brewery to create. Yes...they approached ME...they wanted me to do this for them. So I did. But the usual non-cooperation and backbiting took over and the results of that will become apparent this coming November. I will have nothing to do with it. This is why I decided to ignore Cooperland and just go out on my own with my own event(s) on the Cooper case. This includes the search in June, and probably other stuff closer to Seattle. It's amazing to me how absolutely stubborn some people are in Cooperland. They would rather blow off the best and greatest opportunities to attract the public to Cooper events in favor of small, boring gatherings that go nowhere, and attract few. The backbiting does not interest the public in the least. To them, and on this forum, it's only Cooper that matters. Not me, you, or any of the actual personalities involved in the case. They don't care about us personally. And what the public sees is a lack of cooperation and a bunch of people who can't work together on anything. So...they yawn and go elsewhere, maybe over to another unsolved case. As it is, if you ask anyone under 30 if they know who D.B. Cooper is, they usually just say, "Who?" We move forward with the search in June, which in reality isn't just a 'search'. It's a gathering of friends, fans of the case, and people with metal detectors who barely know who Cooper was. We will do media on it. The idea is to keep Cooper in the minds of the public, which it will certainly do. My email box is already flooded. Cooperland should set aside their differences and start looking at the Big Picture.

    THC & Dropzones

    Off topic kinda but the drop zone I’ve been taking student jumps at always smells like bud dew to the fact that right next to the hangers is a large legal grow op. I’m in Wa where bud is kinda a norm but I’d hate to smoke and jump, I get paranoid enough sober but that’s just me.
