Episode 1: DB Cooper: The Incredible True Crime Story That Inspired ‘Loki’
Loki has finally arrived after more than two years of waiting. The first episode has a lot to unpack, notably the small historical connection to infamous airline hijacker DB Cooper.
Owen Wilson’s Mobius M. Mobius accompanied Loki (Tom Hiddleston) on an epic vision quest midway through the first episode.
Mobius came to a halt at one of his favorite moments in Loki’s life, specifically the time when Loki hijacked a jet and parachuted out the rear before returning to Asgard.
Wilson’s TVA agent declared Loki to be the real DB Cooper, and the sequence ended with Wilson’s TVA agent claiming Loki to be the real DB Cooper.
“You Were D.B. Cooper!” he said. I was in my early twenties when I lost a bet to Thor. When I was meddling in men’s affairs, where was the TVA?”
What is DB Cooper’s name?
DB Cooper is the only unsolved air piracy in commercial aviation history, and it is one of the FBI’s most renowned unsolved mystery cases to date.
Dan Cooper (after nicknamed DB Cooper by US media) bought a one-way ticket to Seattle, Washington from Northwest Orient Airlines in Portland, Oregon on November 24, 1971.
Cooper handed Florence Schaffner a message when the Boeing 727 flight was in the air, informing her that he had a bomb in his briefcase.
Schaffner was told to take a message to the flight’s captain, William A. Scott, after inspecting what seemed to be a homemade bomb.
Four parachutes and $200,000 in twenty-dollar banknotes were required in the nicely printed note.
Scott was able to land the flight in Seattle where the 35 passengers and some of the crew were able to disembark from the plane. Cooper and four members of the flight’s crew, including the captain, stayed on board.
Cooper ordered the pilot towards Mexico City and a few hours later, Cooper put his parachutes to use.
He managed to jump out of the back of the plane using the parachutes and $200,000 in hand, somewhere between Seattle and Reno. At approximately 10.15 p.m. the plane landed at Reno Airport, without Cooper.
More than 45 years later, whether Cooper made a safe landing remains unknown and his whereabouts today are a complete mystery.
The. This is a brief summary.
