The Hunt for DB Cooper – an interview with retired FBI agent, Ralph Himmelsbach

Just looking at some older Cooper research, here is an interesting interview with Ralph Himmelsbach, one of the FBI agents most associated with the case.

The Mountain News - WA


On January 30, 2011, I interviewed Ralph Himmelsbach, the now-retired FBI agent who had been the lead agent for the Bureau’s Portland, Oregon office in the DB Cooper case.  Mr. Himmelsbach, a career FBI agent, served as Portland’s lead Cooper investigator from the time of the skyjacking on November 24, 1971 until his retirement from the Bureau in April, 1980.

Ralph is very easy to find, suggesting that he is comfortable with his public persona., and in addition he has a book for sale on the skyjacking titled, NORJAK: the Investigation of DB Cooper.

  1. William J Smith is Cooper… I have followed the case closely for years and read all the books. I have also interviewed several people involved with the case and enjoyed your articles, but as far as I am concerned, hands down, Willian J. Smith is Cooper. I suspect that if the FBI were to spend a little time investigating Smith they would solve the case easily.

    Please do an article on Smith

  2. I agree William J. Smith is the most compelling suspect to emerge in years. However, there needs to be more research. What are the odds he would have a friend lost in the war with the name Ira Daniel Cooper?
