Hijacker D.B. Cooper jumps from the back of a Northwest Orient Airlines Flight 305 Boeing 727-051 after securing 200.000 $ ransom and four parachutes in Mount St. Helens, Washington, United States.

Despite an extensive manhunt and protracted FBI investigation D.B. Cooper has never been located or identified. The case remains the only unsolved air piracy in commercial aviation history.
