'Loki' Just Explained One Of The Biggest Mysteries In US History - D.B. Cooper

Loki made a huge impact with it’s premiere episode and unraveled one of history’s biggest mysteries – D.B. Cooper.

If you’re unfamiliar, the mystery of who D.B. Cooper is starts in November of 1971, when a man who called himself Dan Cooper, boarded a plane to Seattle.

After the plane took off, he handed a note to one of the air stewards, saying that he had a bomb in his briefcase and proceeded to hijack it, and demanded four parachutes and $200,000 in $20 bills.

When the flight landed in Seattle, Cooper exchanged the plane’s passengers for the money and parachutes and, with only some of the crew still on board the plane with him, headed towards Mexico City. However, he jumped out during the flight with the money and was never heard from again.

Tom Hiddleston and writer Michael Waldron opened up about the inclusion of the mystery into Loki’s timeline and why it made complete sense.

“We were trying to think of ways [for] how Loki, as an incarnation of mischief, might have previously come down to Earth and done various mischievous things and then disappeared,” Tom shared with TVLine. “Perhaps for the human race, these were our unexplained stories.”

Michael added that he “needed an example of a time the TVA hadn’t interfered in Loki’s life when perhaps Loki would think, ‘Maybe you guys should have,’ and that felt like a particularly chaotic moment from history…And now we know: Loki’s D.B. Cooper. The mystery’s solved!”

D.B. Cooper‘s true identity and fate have never been uncovered.
