For many years, one of the most debatable subjects was whether D.B. Cooper had survived the incredible jump. One of the pilots reported to have seen Cooper jump with the instruction parachute; that had been sewn shut (FBI Archives) . After many searches, Dan Cooper is still nowhere to be found. The F.B.I conducted an investigation, NORJAK, that included more than 800 suspects (FBI) . In 1980, a boy discovered $5,800 on the beach of Tena Bar (FBI). Coopers hijacking became the inspirations for many movies such as "Without a Paddle, " and " The Pursuit of D.B. Cooper" (Christine Hauser). Even though this crime was left unsolved, it inspired American culture to create their own ending to the story in books, songs and movies.
