Today in Cold War History
1947 “Red Scare: After the so-called Hollywood 10 refuse to co-operate with the House Un-American Activities Committee concerning allegations of Communist influence in the movie industry, the United States House of Representatives votes 346 to 17 to approve citations of contempt of Congress against them.”

1971 – It was a dark, freezing-cold, rainy Thanksgiving eve when Dan Cooper, now better known as D.B. Cooper, boarded a Northwest Orient airliner in Portland, Oregon. The chain-smoking Cooper, in his mid-forties, wore dark glasses, a dark suit and tie, and white shirt. He carried a black briefcase containing what resembled a bomb, using it to hijack the Boeing 727 plane. Cooper demanded and received $200,000, then parachuted from the plane over the Cascade Mountains in Southwestern Washington, never to be seen again. ($5,880 of the loot was found on the banks of the Columbia River in 1980.) Cooper left several lasting contributions … the mystery: why did he do it, did he survive, and if so, where did he go and what did he do with the rest of the money; and a new aircraft design called the “Cooper Vane”, a device that prevents the tail stairways on Boeing 727s from being lowered while in flight (Cooper’s escape route).
