After the flight takeoff, he gave one note card to his near person Florence Schaffner (she was a flight attendant). She thought that the note contains some lonely business man’s phone number, so she dropped it into her purse without opening. DB Cooper comes forward and told “Miss, you’d better look at that note.

She conveyed all these matters to the pilot. The pilot immediately called an ATC in a Seattle airport which in turn into the National Alert!!
