Personal Update

My apologies to anyone who was hoping to see me at CooperCon in Seattle this year, unfortunately I couldn’t make it because of some temporary health issues (I’m fine now). Hopefully I will make it to future events. Sounds like the event was a big success and I look forward to the positive media coverage and presentation summaries I’m sure will follow.

However, my DB Cooper investigation continues. I’m looking to talk to anyone who was at the Elsinore Paracenter in 1971 or 1972. Also, I’d love to talk to any DC-3 pilots who worked at any skydiving LZ in the late 60’s or early 70’s. You can contact me by leaving a comment (only I see the email address).

Finally, I’m looking at updating the site and trying to find a better template.  So, hopefully, no more waiting for articles to load.

  1. Is this the Marty Andrade who retired from united airlines? If so it’s Dave lavalle, I flew with you many times on the 320. I hope you’re enjoying retirement!

  2. Skip Evans is Mr DC 3. Also affiliated with early DC skydive ops at Elsinore. Does lots of Hollywood DC work. Great guy.

    Last time I saw Skip was in the cockpit of a DC 3 jumpship at about 10,000 ft over the old Chanute AFB in Illinois. A really pretty tall redhead skydiver came up to the cockpit and said if I show you my tits will you give us extra altitude? The top came off and we got the extra altitude.

    Best regards, Mark
