The Hunt for D.B. Cooper


For more than four decades, one of America's most astonishing whodunits has gone unsolved. "D.B. Cooper" was on a flight from Portland to Seattle when he handed over a bomb threat. The airline gave him $200,000 and the hijacker parachuted from the plane, never to be seen again. Cooper evaded one of the most extensive manhunts of the 20th century and has become the stuff of legend. Investigative journalist Geoffrey Gray joins Doug to separate myth from fact in the case of D.B. Cooper. (Rebroadcast)

Geoffrey Gray is an investigative journalist with New York Magazine and the author of Skyjack: The Hunt for D.B. Cooper [Indie bookstores|Amazon|Audible]
