It was the night before Thanksgiving forty years ago that one of Americas most loved mysteries began. On Nov. 24, 1971, the night before Thanksgiving, a man described as being in his mid-40s with dark sunglasses and an olive complexion boarded a Northwest Orient Airlines flight from Portland to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. He bought his $20 ticket under the name "Dan Cooper," but an early wire-service report misidentified him as "D.B. Cooper," and the name stuck. D.B. Cooper, is the mysterious skyjacker who vanished out the back of a Boeing 727 wearing a business suit, a parachute and a pack with $200,000 in ransom money 40 years ago Thursday. The money was never found or spent. D.B. Cooper was never captured or his body found. No sign of Cooper has ever emerged, but a boy digging on a Columbia River beach in 1980 found three bundles of weathered $20 bills – Cooper's cash, according to the serial numbers.
D. B. Cooper where are you? Contact me by email that is listed below.
We should talk.
Just a couple of thoughts I had and you should too or at least think about.

"How wonderful it would be if we could help our children and grandchildren to learn thanksgiving at an early age. Thanksgiving opens the doors. It changes a child's personality. A child is resentful, negative - or thankful. Thankful children want to give, they radiate happiness, they draw people." - Sir John Templeton
