Could D.B. Cooper have survived?

  1. D.B. Cooper wasn't aboard the plane he hijacked when it landed in Reno, Nev.; he had parachuted out of the plane somewhere over the state of Washington. The region where he would have landed was mountainous and forested. His body was never found, so he could have survived. The weather conditions that day were rainy and cold, however, and not good for skydiving. While it seemed Cooper had some aviation knowledge, it was a pretty daring jump for even an expert parachutist to make. Wherever he landed, it could not have been smooth. Whether or not he survived is still an open question.
