The most infamous airline hijacker of all time, D.B. Cooper, remains on the FBI’s most-wanted list almost 40 years after the crime. For the first time, the secret history will be revealed! During the height of the Cold War, a fringe group within the C.I.A. wages a crusade on the deadliest battlefield of all: the mind. Aided by powerful psychotropic compounds, Cooper assists in a campaign of psychic assassination against the Soviets, but are his government’s motives the same as his own or is his true mission something else entirely? Collecting the hit series from visionary cartoonist Brian Churilla (THE ANCHOR), this oversized hardcover offers new insights into Cooper’s multi-faceted quest.

The true story of the unsolved 1971 Northwest Orient airplane hijacking, Skyjack reopens one of the greatest cold cases of the 20th century. “I have a bomb here and I would like you to sit by me.” That was the note handed to a stewardess by a mild-mannered passenger on a Northwest Orient flight in 1971. It was also the start of one of the most astonishing whodunits in the history of American true crime: how one man extorted $200,000 from an airline before parachuting into the wilds of the Pacific Northwest, never to be seen again. Starting with a crack tip from a private investigator, author Geoffrey Gray plunges into the murky depths of the decades-old mystery to chase down new clues and explore the secret lives of the cases's cast of characters and most promising suspects, including Ralph Himmelsbach, the most dogged of FBI agents, who watched with horror as a criminal became a counter-culture folk hero; Karl Fleming, a respected reporter whose career was destroyed by a D.B. Cooper scoop that was a scam; and Barbara (nee Bobby) Dayton, a transgendered pilot who insisted she was Cooper herself. The case of D.B. Cooper is a modern legend that has obsessed and cursed his pursuers for generations. Now with Skyjack, Gray obtians a first-ever look at the FBI's confidential Cooper file, uncovering new leads in the infamous case and providing readers with explosive new information.

Discover the mysterious, controversial, and sometimes downright eerie history of flights that didn't end as planned. The history of aviation is full of accounts of history's most spectacular flights. But what about the ones from which someone failed to return? - A celebrated millionaire--who also happened to be the world's foremost aviator--lifted off in a small plane one clear morning in 2007 and disappeared. - The glamorous son of a beloved fallen president took off on a hazy summer night in 1999 and plunged himself and two others into the Atlantic Ocean. - A US Navy blimp landed one Sunday morning in 1942 in the middle of a city street in California with no one aboard. Some of these "non-returns" occurred because of errors in judgment; others were intentional, and some resulted from causes still unknown. Get the full, meticulous account of the fascinating people involved in these flights, the mistakes they made, and the ways in which their "flight of no return" affected the world. Pilot and aviation writer Steven A. Ruffin covers the entire 230-year span of manned flight in all types of aircraft through war and peace. Balloons, blimps, biplanes, jets, and spaceships have all suffered mishaps over the years. Don't miss the mystery, adventure, intrigue, and a sprinkling of the supernatural and extraterrestrial in Flights of No Return.

What if you knew a secret so astounding that it would change history? W. T. "Bill" Nelson has been holding on to just such a secret, unable to sleep until he shares it with the world. Nelson knows the identity of one of the most elusive criminals in history: the well-known yet mysterious D. B. Cooper, who hijacked an airplane in 1971. Dean Cooper was Nelson's friend. He was the best man at Nelson's wedding. They served together in the US Navy, where they met while stationed on Whidbey Island, Washington. But why would Nelson believe that his friend and colleague, his brother-in-arms, was actually a wanted man? The evidence doesn't lie. The photographs and anecdotes in D. B. Cooper Case Solved present a point-by-point analysis of the case evidence and how it is directly tied to Nelson's friend Dean. From pictures of Dean with the J. C. Penney tie clip currently in the FBI's evidence locker to Cooper's background in the Midwest and his dishonorable discharge from the navy shortly before the hijacking, Nelson's case is compelling, and his firsthand take on one of the most infamous outlaws in America is fascinating.
