Ron Carlson From the Netflix show D.B. Cooper: Where Are You; Who Is DB Cooper?
According to the documentary, the hijacking of Northwest Orient Airlines Flight 305 was carried out by a guy listed as D.B. Cooper on the manifest. Before requesting $200,000 and four parachutes, he delivered a letter to a flight attendant, claiming to have a b*mb and displaying the purported weapon in his bag.
When the plane touched down in Seattle, he received his ransom demands and immediately ordered the plane to take off again for Mexico.
Ron Carlson was a drug runner. In February 1980, Ron traveled to Portland with a buddy to get some c*caine. Richard Kashanski introduced Ron to Tom Colbert in 2011 after learning about Ron’s fascinating story. They then decided to travel to a party that was being held on Hayden Island in Oregon. Ron Carlson came across a narcotics courier named Jon Richard (Dick Briggs).
Briggs was known for being trustworthy. He had a bad temper and was usually upset. This was especially true after drinking. By the 1970s, he was involved in the drug trade and had started claiming to be the actual D.B. Cooper. Ron Carlson, who met Dick, was told a comparable tale. According to the program, Briggs claimed to have served in the special forces in Vietnam and that he was an expert parachutist.
Afterward, Ron reported that Dick had indicated a hippie-looking couple at the gathering. Then, Briggs informed him that they would find some of Cooper’s ransom money in Washington, on the north bank of the Columbia River. Until he saw the news a few days later, Ron disregarded the prediction because it sounded ludicrous at the time.
While on vacation outside of Vancouver, Washington, the same couple and their son found about $5,800 of the ransom money. Right now, Ron Carlson and his companion vowed never to bring up their meeting with Dick again. Years passed before Ron brought it up, which spurred Tom and his team to look into Dick’s claims.
Looking back to the incident, in a nutshell, on November 24, 1971, a guy wearing a suit and sunglasses boarded a plane in Portland, Oregon, and told an air hostess that he had a b*mb in his briefcase. He implied that if she didn’t comply with his requests, he would set it off.
The rest of the passengers weren’t even aware of what was happening until the plane landed in Seattle, Washington, and they were allowed to disembark. He maintained his composure the entire time. D.B. Cooper asked for $200,000 in cash, four parachute sets, and a gasoline truck so that the plane could be refueled in advance of landing. As soon as he got them, he told the pilot to take off and go in the direction of Reno, Nevada.
As per the series, he took the parachutes, leaped out of the aircraft, and was never again knowingly seen. With only a few sketches and the description that the mystery man smelled like c*garettes and drank bourbon, the FBI has been baffled as to who exactly this man was.
But as is the case with most good mysteries, interest in cracking the case never faded. However, still, there is no proof to find out Who is DB Cooper? and dozens of couch sleuths and crime historians are still working hard to identify the genuine criminal.
