"The man in the natty suit smoked a cigarette, ordered a bourbon and soda and carried a bomb in his briefcase. He sat in the rear of the passenger cabin on Northwest Orient Flight 305 from Portland to Seattle. Shortly after takeoff, he slipped the flight attendant a note explaining his intention to hijack the plane. Calmly, he put on a pair of sunglasses, demanded $200,000 in ransom and directed the pilot to land in Seattle. Once on the ground, the hijacker let 36 passengers exit, accepted the $200,000 and instructed the pilot to fly to Mexico. "

Key questions:
Could the money have been spent/laundered, but, not been detected by the FBI?
Could he have died, and, the body not been found after so many years?
Could a professional parachutist reproduce the event and survive?

Key questions:
Could the money have been spent/laundered, but, not been detected by the FBI? Depends if they had the chance to mark it first. Boy that was a while ago. did they even have a supply of dye that would light up under UV?
Could he have died, and, the body not been found after so many years? I would think so if he had a bad landing. Although that suspected area has been searched pretty thoroughly by folks looking for the loot.
Could a professional parachutist reproduce the event and survive? The Boeing 727 did have a rear exit ramp and he supposedly used that to escape. I would think it be the same as jumping from a C-130
