On November 24th, 1971 a man dressed in a suit and tie hijacked a Northwest Orient Airlines flight bound for Seattle, Washington. He told the flight crew he had a bomb in his briefcase and demanded $200,000 dollars in cash and four parachutes. Shortly after he got his ransom, the man jumped from the airborne 727 into the night, somewhere between Seattle and Reno, Nevada, never to be seen again. In the more than 45 years since the epic heist, the FBI has looked at over a thousand potential suspects, but the questions remain: Who is DB Cooper? Did he die? Did he live? And is he still out there?
Now a pair of journalists and their team of investigators are set to reveal the findings of a five-year investigation. Testing and questioning their conclusions is a former Assistant Director of the FBI and a veteran crime journalist, who will also take viewers on a surprising journey into the details of the heist and various theories as to who could have pulled off the audacious caper.

Cooper mystery includes rare interviews with numerous experts, insiders and one-time suspects, as well as a sit down with the one person who not only spent the most time with him during the crime, but was also the last to see the infamous skyjacker before he jumped into history.
