About My Father Created D.B. Cooper

My Father Created D.B. Cooper

On November 24, 1971, a man calling him­self Dan Cooper purchased an airline ticket for $20 and boarded a one-way flight from Portland to Seattle. After takeoff, he hijacked the plane with a note, collected $200K in cash, demanded a reroute to Mexico, and parachuted out of the plane, never to be identified or found again. The legend of "sky pirate" D.B. Cooper made national headlines thanks to journalist Clyde Jabin. His son, historian Darrell Jabin, tells this incredible story with personal insight.

Darrell Jabin, "Oregon's Traveling Historian," has been researching and sharing unique local history since 2009. Darrell's award-winning videos have a growing audience on social media, and he is a prolific history speaker.

These events are open to everyone interested in Pacific Northwest history, and beyond! Often co-sponsored by local or state historical and civic organizations, we bring you experts, scholars, first-person experiencers, historians and documentaries expounding on topics from indigenous history to the birth of Portland, early explorers to hop growing, and on and on! It's like being back in the classroom - except this time you get to settle into comfortable seats and enjoy a drink or two with dinner while you listen and learn.
