New Delhi: This is the story of D.B. Cooper — one of the few people to hijack a plane and get away scot free.

DB Cooper hijacked a Boeing 727 and parachuted with $200,000. Despite an extensive manhunt and an ongoing FBI investigation, he was never found.  

D. B. Cooper is a media epithet popularly used to refer to an unidentified man who hijacked a Boeing 727 aircraft in the airspace between Portland, Oregon, and Seattle, Washington, on November 24, 1971, extorted $200,000 in ransom, and parachuted to an uncertain fate.  

Despite an extensive manhunt and an ongoing FBI investigation, the perpetrator has never been located or positively identified.
