    I bet the hairs on your neck stood up when you heard all that. A most interesting little chat!

    Correct. Ted E is Ted E Mayfield. Sorry, if I was too flippant. Yes, Ralph Himmelsbach wrote in his book that Ted E Mayfield helped in the FBI investigation of the DB Cooper skyjacking. However, Ralph did not disclose the specifics of that assistance, nor has he ever commented on it, as far as I know, even though he has been asked to do so by researchers, Perhaps RH saw Ted M as some sort of Frank Abagnale?

    Well, Shutter is able to see "dead people" so to speak, but Ted E kills them, at least that's what a court decided in terms of convicting him for causing the death of two of his skydiving students. I also understand that a bunch more died over the years at his DZ, 20 or so, I think. Ted E's guys also had a run-in with RH-1 at Aurora State Airport, which caused a lot of grief over unsafe conditions. But the Big Question is how Ted E helped RH-1 and the Bureau during their Norjak investigation, as RH-1 states in his book. I called Ted E to see what was cookin', but he hung up on me. I don't know if you can call Ted E a murderer, but I didn't think he would be so sensitive.... I find it funny that so many Norjak principals love to live under or near the Victor 23 airway. RH-1 and Tina sure do, and Ted E is just west of Tina on the way to the beach. Plus, Lee and Jane aren't that far away, either, in the Puget Sound area near Olympia. The Ted E Not-Fan Club is quite large, as I think 9 people called the night of the skyjacking to tell the FBI that Ted E did it. But RH-1 was on the phone with Ted E, so the feds thought he had a pretty good alibi. Why Ted E gets so much attention is a mystery to me, as he is about a half-foot too short and about ten-fifteen years younger than DB Cooper. Speaking of things in Oregon, have you heard about the interview with Tina that got published in the Eugene Weekly? I'm following up on it. Not sure it's legit or what, but she claims that she flew NWO routes to the Orient for five years after the Cooper incident. Kind of shoots the KC theory, eh? Also, Tina says she was flying with NWO until 1982, which is weird. Sister Elizabeth Mary told me she was already in the convent by then. Hmmmmmmm. One last thing about Ted E. Divorzic (spelling?) and Meyers really got under Georger's skin. Since G-1 is no longer here, you might go to Shut's site and ask the Old Man about Ted and the two would-be sleuths Is the Ted E you are referring to Ted Mayfield? Assuming that's the case, are you saying Ralph Himmelsbach claimed in "Norjak the Investigation of D B Cooper" that Ted Mayfield helped the Bureau during their investigation?? Please correct me if I'm reading the cards wrong here.

    Just another day in paradise by the look of things. How bout a change of topic that involves a little less tension? Anyone care to tell the new kid on the block a bit about Ted Mayfield?

    (About saying user '18C' is actually Galen Cook, who was previously banned from DZ for life) ***I believe you aren't Galen Cook for two reasons. First, if you WERE Cook, you would be found out sooner or later, and I don't think the real Cook would want to be viewed as dishonest, and come back (and then try denying he was Cook) after being perma-banned from Dropzone already. Two, the Google Map in your profile shows a location in New South Wales, Australia. So you must be from Australia. Or maybe it was just the random point and was not adjusted. But just in case you are from Down Under, nice place and welcome. I know an oceanographer currently working down in Tasmania on a research grant, and I have a friend doing college in Sydney. If you aren't from Australia, (and I'm not asking) I will take your word anyway that you aren't Galen Cook. Tell me I didn't take your word under false pretenses. It is time things here stopped being about me. You are correct that I am Australian, and I am definitively not who I'm being accused of being. So lets all move on...

    Blevins, The tellers did not have to check "all their incoming twenties". They only had to check the twenties for three specific years. But you would know that already if you read posts on this thread other than your own. Robert99 Am I right in thinking it's been established already the list of serial numbers the banks received was in sequential order? Meaning checking for a specific bill number involved just looking for where it should appear in the list and not checking every single number? What were the 3 years of the $20 bank notes found by Brian Ingram? Were they 1969, 1970 and 1971? A single picture can say a lot. Attached: A single page from the 34-page list of the ransom bills that was provided to NW banks, Federal Reserve banks, and certain casinos. Since the years involved were close to the year of the hijacking, it is safe to assume that tellers had to check MOST of their incoming twenties. Too bad they didn't give Cooper a bunch of bills from say...1957. They would have been easier to track.

    While you are at it, you could also make sure that you stay honest on this site. 18C is Galen Cook! Up to his old games AGAIN! Maybe, but RobertMBlevins is still RobertMBlevins. No on the first one. Can't help on the second.

    You make some good points there Bruce. I also found it interesting RFM was able to just hitch-hike his way home undetected. His original plan included his wife driving distraction in a separate car. But he got by easy enough without her. RFM's attention to detail in pre-planning his hijack was underrated IMO. Outside of telling people what he was up to and suffering the odd bout of stage fright along the way, his crime bordered on genius and he seems to have pre-planned far better than did DBC - again IMO. RFM's crime was identical in so many ways to DBC's, but to me the tell tale difference is found in their differing demeanor. DBC remained calm almost throughout and was the consummate gentleman according to Tina. RFM on the other hand was jamming his gun into people's ribs, pointing it at people, and waving his hand grenade menacingly about as well. Your suggestion DBC may have assisted RFM is left field and interesting. Remember also RFM in his demand letters kept referring to ''we'' not "i".

    Whatcha think of the Real McCoy? In particular, Rhodes" interviews with agents that had participated in the Reno evidence retrieval? When Bernie characterizes some of them acting as if they were "under the influence of a post-hypnotic suggestion," and that no one remembers the tie, those bits got my attention Big Time. You? Really enjoyed The Real McCoy. Great read whether the reader considers the connection to Flight 305 accurate or not. I will have to revisit the book and seek the section you specifically refer to. RFM had one hell of an interesting life, and if not for it being overshadowed by DBC's legendary deeds, would probably already have been turned into a mini-series or movie IMO.

    Not exactly, Eighteen-C, what does your handle mean to you? The fact that you use a seat number from Flight 305 as a moniker show that you have done some reading, such as RH-1's book, and probably others - Calame? Tosaw? If you'd like to read more, I'm happy to send an e-draft of my book along to ya. Free. brucesmith at rainierconnect dot com. I mentioned I'd read a couple of books on DBC. Seat 18C had a book on it. That's the origin of my moniker. Have read Skyjack, Into The Blast and The Real McCoy. Keen to read more. Cheers.

    Thanks for your thoughts and support there. I should have mentioned it earlier, but I'll do it now, the "Through The Lens of Logic" series of videos by SafecrackingPLF seemed to be very worthwhile, but then conclude almost all too suddenly. I got the impression he stopped rather than finished? I will re-visit the last couple of videos. But that's the impression I got. OOPS! I was wrong. Tina sat in the other aisle seat, 18 - D. RH-1 got that wrong in his book. Billy Mitchell says he sat in 18 - B, put his books in 18- C and coat in 18- A. DBC sat in 18 - E, and left his tie there. I never claimed to be DBC, a witness or anybody special. Just that I had read a couple of books. My handle 18C make some sense now?
