    Who says Cooper actually tied it closely to his body? If he was an ex-paratrooper, (not Kenny necessarily, but ANY paratrooper) he may have left some slack in the line. Then he jumps and lets it go just as he pulls the ripcord. The result might have been as pictured in the attachment. Roughly that is. Remember: Mucklow said one of the last things she saw was Cooper tying a line around his waist.



    I don't think that's how it's done...LMAO

    yep, Cooper died all right...

    that scenario would probably make the harness fail and kill or severely injure the jumper...

    Yes, Robert has the scenario bassackwards on how it is actually taught, and how the experienced, and not so experienced, actually do equipment jumps.

    I have a B.A. in Criminology from a major university, and I work in the investigations field, although I'll be clear that I am not a LEO, and just to put Jo at ease I'm going to come out and say I am also not a scum bag PI either (or a non scum bag PI for that matter).



    FOR JO WEBER'S BENEFIT:

    The quotation above is paragraph 3, post #50020, page 2001.

  3. Jo, he did NOT claim he worked in law enforcement, he actually said he did NOT.

    And yes, if one sees the trick to reading this thread, it can be read, and a basic understanding can be grasped in 2~ days.

    I say let him stay, not that I, or you, have a say in it.

    He may want to re-read a few of the forum rules though, or he could be reminded of them by a Grennie as I have from time to time.:)

    He thus far, IMO, has been spot on. Actual experts get ignored here, and some very well trained and highly educated folks as well, all by some who want their pet suspect to be "the one".

    ONLY MY OPINION
    Since Cooper aka K C did not plan on taking the bomb with him and only took it after a request by Miss Mucklow I believe and is only my opinion that he let go of it on purpose before he deployed his chute I keep facts and my opinion separate
    But on this one I will give my OPINION



    Since you're keeping them separate, is the following fact or opinion?:

    "and only took it after a request by Miss Mucklow"

    It was told to me by LARRY CARR HIM SELF

    Actually, you're the one late here. But, why quibble about facts.

    See, you could fix your mistake i.e. cup/cop, but then that wouldn't help you pass your farce off.

    Right or wrong, those who actually HAVE proof and stand by their convictions, HAVE gone to the press, printed their books, made their TV shows etc. They didn't act cowardly.

    Excuse me, but would you mind not associating me with Bob Knoss? Thank you.

    My life is well-known, Cooper isn't the only thing I have going, and I do have some standards. One of those standards is to question points on the case with reasonable arguments.

    I think you missed it.

  9. I truly hope your family and health issues resolve for the best.

    Now, to Cooper, when did you actually place DW "IN" a chute, not just near someone who used one? All I can find is your claims, no proof. Kind of like the claim KC had knowledge of the chute used because he was trained as a paratrooper, even though Paratroopers in KC's day, didn't use the styles of chutes asked for.

    Nope, they don't "exhale" CO2, trees do use it though.

    ************One thing I know for sure. There is little I would want to learn from you :)



    Considering that you write like a 5 year old child, I doubt that you are capable of learning anything.
    Still unemployed?

    Fail again

    At no time in the last 40 years have I not been employed.

    See! Still nothing learned from you

    Your profile states that you are 'still looking.' If you are employed, why would you lie on a profile? Are you so embarrassed of your job that you would not state in your profile what you do for a living? Maybe, your a top secret troll and divulging such information may endanger your life, liberty and, happiness?

    NO one can discuss anything here without YOU REHASHING the same old stuff OVER & OVER & OVER. We all know it by heart! KENNEY was not Cooper - GET OVER IT! Geestman used you - he made an ASS out of you - GET OVER IT!

    Stop REPEATING the same thing over and over - it is NOT going to make people BELIEVE you! If you find something new - i am sure everyone will be eager to hear it - NOTE, I do not rehash Duane anymore...it is useless until more things are revealed such as my little 9 month run with Bulljax who I believe to be Flyjack!



    Pot, meet Kettle.

    Many have told you the same thing about D. Weber, yet even with the lack of actual evidence, your ever evolving story, you still say only you have the truth, yet haven't produced your "with out a doubt facts" and "evidence".
    :S

    If you just want to know about your late husband and his criminal past as a petty felon, and con man, just state that is your goal, you'll find far more support that way.

    *********************"negotiable American currency",,

    Only a foreigner would use that phrase..

    Either this came from the hijacker or it didn't, when I was at the Museum symposium, Bruce was adamant that it didn't come from the hijacker,,, this is also problematic..

    We know that everyone else was American, and no American would use that phrase, so it is even more difficult to explain the injection of that phrase into the narrative excluding the hijacker.

    Some crazy thoughts,
    Is it possible that the stewardess knew the hijacker OR subconsciously sensed that he was foreign causing the use of the phrase, "negotiable American currency"?

    Northwest Orient Airline did fly some International routes, did the stewardess stay on domestic flights or travel internationally.. did she have experience with foreign passengers?

    Did anyone else hear the hijacker speak?

    from Kaye
    "the most notable line to come out of the Cooper transcripts where passengers on the plane, including the flight attendants, stated that Cooper had no distinguishable accent"

    ...



    Or ... he never said that!

    READ THE THREAD.

    It's old advice but you need to check FACTS BEFORE leaping to theory.

    Facts vs myth. Hot button theory vs. actual research.

    you miss the point, I STATED,, either the hijacker said it OR somebody added it,, WHY would somebody add it if they were American.. would an American add it to the narrative..

    Why would any American add "American" to describe the currency.

    and you sir miss the WHOLE POINT!

    He never said it - period!

    The issue is facts vs myths, in case you care.

    :D

    It's all supposition, of course, but to Flyjack's point, someone said it..... and he makes a valid observation that the crew has no reason to interject the word American.

    Here are the references...

    From the handwritten crew notes: "negotiable currency"
    From the transcript: "He wants negotiable American currency. Denomination not important"
    From ckret's post on Dropzone: "He asked for negotiable US currency"

    Well it is a good thing someone asked for negotiable or negotiable american currency. It would have made the jump more difficult with $200,000 worth of gold bars.

    Especially since the gold vault was empty!

    Matt

    (sorry- couldn't resist :P it seems it fits this thread though)

    The last thing Copper said was I can do that
    I knew matt would not call 360 975 9601
    Well who owned the property before PDX was built

    So you wanted me to call you, since you never answered my question.

    Why am I calling you? you have offered; no evidence, have no credibility, ignore actual facts (hand writing on ticket, etc) and only perpetrated myths that are probably more along the line of lies.

    Your whole purpose here is self promotion, for personal and financial gain, like a few others here. And like them, you should be banned from here as well, for life if I had my way.

    I would tell Him to call me but he won't 360 975 9601
    ask him to show you the results form FBI lab Virgina
    ask him if your shoes are untied thats the only way you would know.

    Curtis Eng told me that some people don't want this case solved and I see that's you

    Its the FBI policy not to comment on a ongoing investigation
    but Curtis Eng made an exception.

    Good LUCK Sir find a new hobby try metal detecting

    sorry Sir but Paul Geivett of Vancouver WA state Solved the DB COOPER CASE ON 6 13 13 get over it no body is hiding the letter's from you or the ticket

    Go out side in the lite of day and ask someone you don't know if they think the handwriting matches. Don' tell them it has any thing to do with DB COOPER.

    THEY all will say yes. ASK 12 and your done

    The only people that say no are on this site only 7 or so

    You have $$$$$$$$$ motivation Sir that's all Greed$$$$$$$$$$ ask your doctor next time you see him if he thing the handwriting matches. Then ask him to explain DNA to you

    I spell Curtis Eng that way not Matt tell Matt to call the ST patrol if he want's me to show him who DB COOPER IS OR HE CAN WATCH MY VIDEOS FOR HIMSELF AND SAVE ME ANOTHER SPEEDING TICKET Sir you DENIAL is almost unbelievable it's shocking YOU WILL NEVER BE ABEL TO TALK TO CURTIS ENG EVER AGAIN. you will get the media department isn't that right Curtis.

    Controversy will sell more of my book than the case being solved
    conspiracy Ill sell even more that way so keep it up Sir
    Case solved every body can go home low book sales I like it your way. So keep up the good work SIR

    Who do you want to call you?
    Since no one here believes you, nor apparently any LEO who may be associated with the case, and many who are following it.

    Since it appears you are making up all your supposed conversations, I am loath to think you have had any with anyone out side this page, or outside this format.

    But, at least you are finally admitting why you are making your claim, Money. Money is usually the first motivation for most crimes, even ones that aren't illegal.

  21. In the few investigations I have been apart of, the LEO always accepted the Class III as in possession if it was on the DZ, i.e. in the log book, locker etc.

    What a former aviation lawyer (For the GOV) told me one time, paraphrased; T-I's get certified by taking and passing a course, then maintaining their annual certifications as required by the manufacturer and USPA, part of qualifying is the Class III or better. I could make a charge stick if you didn't have one.

    He would keep telling me to re-read and really study the FAR as it pertained to Tandems, KNOW what it says, he would say, again and again.

    Good thing the guy was in our side, since there are apparently some not passing any form of medical certification and acting as T-I's.

    Also consider the fact ChrisD doesn't know what he is talking about. He obviously is not rated and is only guessing what a coach course is. It actually is 3 days of intensive learning about how to teach students. If you're not already a teacher you will learn a ton of valuable information. You will be tested on 2 very simple air evaluations and you will practice ground preps. But the course is 99% classroom learning and 1% test which is a given you will pass. The course is all about teaching and has very little to do with your air skills.



    False. The course is a combo or teaching and learning. Sure it is "simple" to the "prepared", which is key, be prepared.
