(1971 skyjacker Boeing 727 airplane skyjacking song lyrics)
NO,  I  AM D. B. COOPER
Copyright © 2012 - MickTerry.com

You know, it's been forty years. Thought I'd never get tired
of hearing people claiming they're the one
who took a dive out the rear, while those three engines spit fire,
and dropped ten thousand feet to sure oblivion.

I'd get a kick just to read how they fought to survive
the biting cold, the piercing rain, the fears,
the crashing hard through the trees as the parachute glides,
the busted ribs, cracked shins, the death that's ever near.

    NO, I- AM D. B. COOP-ER.
    The rest- are obvious fakes.
    NO, I- AM D. B. COOP-ER.
    The rest- are nuts and flakes.

That DN A on the tie, I really doubt that it's mine.
Three dollars at Goodwill: could be anyone's.
& there were bundles of cash I'd plant for someone to find.
It's a shame that kid at Tena's Bar found only one.

    CHORUS

        But they didn't have a wife
        who found me bruised & bleeding,
        who nursed me back thru pneumonia to better health.
        Who made me swear on her life
        we never would be needing
        to dig up that stashed two hundred thousand cash.
        With the brains and balls it took to pull this off,
        there's no telling what I could do
        to bring us some legal wealth.

Now, I can't say we've been rich, but then I can't complain.
I've loved teaching folks to survive out in the woods.
Now, life's a son-of-a-bitch:  I lost my wife yesterday.
Now, who'll keep me honest, clean and always doing good?

    CHORUS

        No death-bed confession here.
        I'm still kicking.

Portland, OR
40th anniversary symposium commemorating the hijacking.
Many investigators spoke
, as did Marla Cooper, making some claims re: FBI.

Marla Cooper told FBI, then ABC News, as an 8-year-old on
Thanksgiving 1971, she heard her uncles, Lynn Doyle (LD) Cooper
& Dewey Max Cooper, telling her father, Donald Cooper,
"Our money problems are over. We just have to go back & get the
money. LD hijacked the airplane." LD was bloody & bruised,
unable to walk, purportedly in a car accident but with no car damage.
After initial questioning by FBI, Dewey suddenly moved to Canada,
dying in 1985. LD also disappeared in 1972, dying in 1999.
Marla's dad confirmed their involvement before his death in 1995.
Her mom confirmed it in 2011. Marla also recalled powerful walkie-
talkies & LD's Dan Cooper French comic books.
With over 1000 suspects, was this just one more not matching FBI's
fingerprint
& DNA evidence for USA's only unsolved skyjacking case?

8-year-old Brian Ingram found $5880 of that cash by Columbia River,
eventually splitting it with NW Orient Airline's insurance company.
None
of remaining ransom money was ever found or seemingly spent .
FBI distributed serial numbers of the 10,000 $20 bills to banks.

Using the name "Dan Cooper", a man in a dark suit & sunglasses
paid $20 for Northwest Orient Flight 305 from Portland to Seattle
(Boeing 727 jetliner #N467US).
The next to last passenger to board, he sat in seat 18C in the back,
showing
the stewardess a bomb in his attaché case soon after takeoff.
Releasing
36 passengers & 2 stewardesses upon receiving 4 parachutes
& $200,000 in $20 bills, he re-directed Flight 305 to Mexico,
jumping off of the jetliner's aft airstair over Southern Washington
forests in a freezing rainstorm. His fate is yet unknown.
Using similar techniques with Boeing 727's, 31 skyjackings occurred
in 1972 until drastic security measures were enforced.
