I just finished my binge of DB Cooper: Where Are You?! and thought I'd share a few thoughts, since this case has fascinated me since childhood.
First, Tom Colbert comes off looking like an asshole conspiracy nutjob. Most of this series focuses on him and his "search," but he seems to lock onto a suspect early on into his investigation and then closes himself off to all other possibilities. While the series does touch on other investigators and other theories, none so much as Tom Colbert.
Second, unless a body is found with one of the parachutes and some of the cash strapped to it because they died in the jump, I don't think we'll ever know for certain who DB Cooper was. Considering he was thought to be in his 40s in 1971, and was a smoker, he is almost certainly dead by now. Or will be soon.
Finally, it's not a great series, but one worth watching if you've ever had any interest in the story at all. It was definitely enough to renew my interest in the subject ;)

ahcapella recently sent me some notes he's been keeping over the years on CassieIsWatching, but many of the links have long since been dead. I've posted them over at CassieIsWatching.com and have been updating the links to Wayback Machine versions, where appropriate. Two of the three files he sent have been updated so far, but this makes me wonder... would it make sense for me to move the entire site off of a blogging platform and over to a wiki, like this, and mirror the content of all those links instead of link them? And, even though some of the lg15.com sites are still there, should I maybe mirror the appropriate parts on CassieIsWatching.com as well? We have lost way too much data to time, and I would hate to lose more.
