First, YES, I do know the post I'm replying to is three years old. Anyway...
The decoded code crew said he worked at the airline for a "few" years after the skyjacking. He actually worked 20 more years after the skyjacking. I can that blantant mis-representation at best.
Not true. At approximately the 32 minute mark, Mack says--quite EMPHATICALLY--that Lyle (Kenny's brother) told them Kenny stayed with the airline for twenty years after the hijacking. She then says that he "hangs out at the scene of the crime for twenty years."
Copper jumped at night into a wooded area with the temperature being something like 17 degrees with a wind chill of minus 32 degrees while wearing a dress suit. When they asked sky divers if the jump was surviable the only paramater specified was the type of plane, air speed and the height.
Not exactly. When Buddy is interviewing Larry Yount, the skydiving instructor, Yount is well aware that they're talking about DB Cooper and his jump. For example, Buddy says "when he leapt, he had a bag of money weighing 22 pounds." Yount then explains that in military operations it's not unusual to leap with 150 pounds of equipment, so 22 is inconsequential. Yount tells Buddy about commercial skydiving companies where people pay extra money to "do the jump DB Cooper did." My point being, he's very much aware that they're talking about DB Cooper, so I think we can safely assume that he knows what ALL the conditions of that jump were, including the time of day and the temperature.
The FBI agent in charge of the original investigation told the Decoded crew that the jump Cooper made woould be difficult to survive in large part because Copper jumped at night into a wooded area with the temperature being something like 17 degrees with a wind chill of minus 32 degrees
No, he said it was -7 with a windchill of -69.
At the beginning of the show they made a big deal out that after the skyjacking the suspect purchased a house for himself and gave a relatibe some money to buy a house($16K and $5K if I recall correctly) and had about $160K in the bank. Tell me how much he had in the bank before the skyjacking to make this information meaningful.
Well, we know that he was earning $512 per month
. We also know that according to people who knew him, he lived one type of life before the heist and a very different type of life after. I think it's quite unlikely that a person earning $512/month could magically sock away $200,000 just like that! And why did he not spend money like crazy before the heist, but only after?
Later in the show they mentioned the method the money was marked and because of that the suspect hid it in the attic of a house he owned later in life. Now did he bank it or hide it?
They said very clearly that he wouldn't have wanted to put all of it in the bank, so it follows that he may have hidden some of it.
I'm really wondering if we watched the same show, because the one I watched doesn't match up AT ALL with the one you watched!
