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.

November 24, 1971 - A man known to the F.B.I. as 'Dan Cooper' leaped from the aft stairway of a Boeing 727 after demanding four parachutes and $200,000 in cash. He was never seen again, and nearly forty years later, he has never been identified - until now. During the initial investigation, few in law enforcement suspected that the hijacker could actually be an employee of the airline, and that was their mistake. Kenneth Peter Christiansen, a former World War II paratrooper and later a purser for Northwest Airlines, was the man who pulled off the boldest unsolved crime in history. Skipp Porteous of Sherlock Investigations, New York, and Robert Blevins of Adventure Books of Seattle present the case that Christiansen and Cooper were one and the same. Into The Blast shows how Kenny Christiansen planned the hijacking of NWA Flight 305, what motivated him to do it, who helped him on the ground, and what he did with the money afterward. More than thirty pictures, as well as interviews with the witnesses, reveals the truth at last in this fascinating book.

On November 24th, 1971, somewhere over Oregon, Dan “D.B.” Cooper parachuted out of the Northwest Airlines Jet he had hijacked with $200,000 in cash, and into what would turn out to be one of history’s most notorious unsolved crimes. D.B. Cooper was never seen again, but $5,800.00 of his ransom money was found on a bank of the Columbia River on February 10, 1980. Who was this man calling himself Dan Cooper, was it even possible to survive a jump from that altitude and in that freezing and stormy weather, and if so – why was the perpetrator (dead or alive) never found? InD.B. Cooper Case Exposed, former Captain and Secret Service Coordinator with the California Highway Patrol, author George C. Nuttall examines all the evidence available, and discovers that an astonishing case filled with poor police work, missing documents, lies, and cover-ups that may implicate some of the most powerful people in the country at that time – including, congressmen, mafia Dons, and even the FBI and J. Edgar Hoover himself. We may never know exactly who D.B. Cooper was, why he did what he did, and whether or not he survived his infamous leap into the history books –- but this book will disclose amazing evidence of who Cooper was, why he made his near-certain suicide jump, and why the FBI has not reportedly solved this skyjacking.

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.

Around Thanksgiving (2010) my wife Robin and I were sitting on the sofa watching the 11:00pm late news when they announced it was once again the anniversary of the “D.B. Cooper skyjacking event. On television, they always talk about it...this time they showed the original film footage of the airliner, taken during a stormy night in Seattle around 40 years earlier. In addition, they also displayed the composite sketch of the skyjacker, drawn from the memories of the few passengers and crew members to have observed him on the night of the skyjacking. “Look”, I told my wife, “That guy was my father. I swear to God, he’s the one who did it.” She was astonished. I went on to tell her my Dad’s brother, Bud, was in on it also. That he was a jet captain for the very airline, Northwest Orient, that was hijacked! Now, outside of conversations with my mother, I’d not mentioned a word of all this to anybody in over 40 years! The newscast went on to say that the FBI had discovered additional new evidence in the case, (In the form of DNA) again they asked for the public’s help in finally solving the case. I not only decided to tell my wife, I told her of my decision to contact the authorities including the FBI as soon as possible to reveal what I knew. I was excited that evening, I began to tell my wife more about the story. Before the newscast on television was over, I walked her to our living room wall, pointing to a portrait of my father and his brother Bud standing next to each other in front of an airplane, (front cover photo on book). “Robin, I took this photograph just over 3 weeks before the skyjacking. Dad, on the left, is “Cooper”...I wasn’t quite 15 years old when I took the picture. I’ll never forget the day. It was Saturday, October 30th 1971. I was outside on the Edmonds ferry dock selling newspapers. Next, Dad and Bud show up and basically kidnap me with an offer to buy me lunch. I was already starved, so I climbed into the back of my uncle’s car. Despite my protests my uncle Bud, with Dad to his right, drives me out to Snohomish airport, where we took off, with my uncle Bud at the controls, (Dad co-pilot), and I in the back in the rear cargo section. Immediately after taking off, and climbing, uncle Bud banks sharply to the right, flies out over Puget Sound, and begins circling. This goes on for quite some time. We seemed to be flying from Everett to Seattle, passing Edmonds, and sharp circles back to Everett. Dad and him were going over calculating and discussing about things, I, in the back, starving and wondering what they were up to! “Uncle Bud, Dad! What are you guys doing? Why are we flying circles? I’m starving, when are we gonna eat? You said you’d buy me lunch, Uncle Bud!” Finally, Uncle Bud turns and says “Don’t worry Bradley, were going to land, we’ll get you lunch soon... After we landed at Renton Municipal Airport, we entered the café, and only I had lunch, they had eaten earlier. After lunch, we walked out to the plane where I took the famous front cover photo. We took off, and landed back at Snohomish. The main reason I enjoy telling this part of the story and sharing the photograph with people is because it’s all tells the story: What Dad and Bud really did that day was take me along with them during the “Final dress rehearsal” of what my dad did just over 3 weeks later. Complete with flying circles of Puget Sound and landing our small plane at Renton, only 3 miles from Sea-Tac Airport, where Dad had the Boeing -727 jet landing on the night of the skyjacking.
