Hijacker, A 100 Word Legend

Dan Cooper lit a Raleigh cigarette as he purchased his plane ticket FOR $18.52. The day before Thanksgiving, 39 years ago today.

After boarding, he ordered a bourbon and 7up and lit another Raleigh.

He slipped the blonde stewardess a note… She pocketed it without looking.

Dan called her back. “You need to read that.”

She did, and then he showed her the bomb.

The plane landed, let the passengers go and took off again with $200,000 and 4 parachutes.

He hadn’t planned on the storm…

8:10 pm he walked down the back stairs of the plane and into history.
