    Parachute May Have Link to 1971 Hijacking Case

    SEATTLE — The worn parachute that children found while playing on their family’s property in rural southwestern Washington this month may be the one that D. B. Cooper used on that mysterious night in 1971 when he carried out what the authorities call the only unsolved hijacking in United States history.

    Then again, maybe not.

    “It’s the right place, it’s the right color and it appears to be the right size,” said Special Agent Robbie Burroughs of the F.B.I. office in Seattle.

    Then again, Ms. Burroughs said, “it’s hard to say that because it’s so tied up in knots and it’s quite deteriorated.”

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    I always think of "Without a Paddle" when I hear anything about D.B. Cooper.

    The quote about not having to run faster than the bear, only having to run faster than his friend - that is priceless.
