This is my chance to brag on Rara Avis that I have done the DB Cooper jump 3 times, twice at 175 knots and once at 200 knots, out the back chute of a 727 jet, as he did. Not in the dark over rough country, however, and I didn't have a sack of money. It's a wild ride, though, let me tell you. On the 200 knot
 jump, some of my lines flew out and tangled from the boost of wind against my back. If anybody wants to read about it, I believe the story is still on, in the travel section. It was a piece I did for the London Guardian when Sky Blues came out. Vicki
