Victor Airways Project

 

What is the “Victor Airways Project?”

 

One night last February (2008), I was thinking about how Cooper could have jumped into the night without any idea where he was. FBI Special Agent Larry Carr has expressed many times that Cooper wasn’t much of a planner, if he had been, he would have given directions for what path to fly, so he could jump at a pre-planned point.

 

I did a great deal of research (I just concluded it this morning (June 19, 2008)) and I believe Cooper used a bit of trickery to ensure he was flown along the path he wanted without having to specify.

 

You might ask, “Why wouldn’t he just say fly here?” Well there are two reasons for that. One, it would give investigators a place to search for him. And Two, it would have told investigators something about his background. They would have narrowed the suspect pool considerably, if they only had to seek people with detailed knowledge of aircraft navigation.

 

While I am developing a “Final Report” I am making my raw files available to anyone who wants them.

 

You may download them below. [Please don’t link to these files]

Files for Download

 

Note: Due to the fact that I don’t write HTML very well, and that angers the Gods of Computerdom, I had to do a little “work-around” with the Google Earth and GPX files. They all have text file extensions (like myfile.gpx is myfilegpx.txt). Download the files and rename them with the KML or GPX extension and they will be ready to go. Some browsers my want to rename them as XML files (because that’s what they are).
