Experience the infamous “D.B. Cooper” in fact and fiction.
On Thanksgiving Eve, 1971, the only unsolved case of air piracy in history took place when the hijacker known only as “D.B. Cooper” parachuted out of a Boeing 727 over the Pacific Northwest after receiving $200,000 in ransom money.
Unsolved officially, that is. A new four-part documentary, D.B. Cooper: The Real Story, pins the crime on Michigan man Walter Reca, following a 20-year investigation by Reca’s best friend Carl Laurin – including a taped confession — and two years of follow-up work by the filmmakers from Principia Media. You can stream the episodes for $2.99 each, or all four for $10.99, at iTunes, Amazon or Google Play. For more info, visit TheRealDBCooper.com.
After you stream D.B. Cooper: The Real Story, you might want to catch up with D.B. Cooper: The Fake Story…err, we mean The Pursuit of D.B. Cooper, a 1981 crime thriller starring Treat Williams as Cooper and Robert Duvall as the cop pursuing him.
