In what is termed the only unsolved hijacking in the U.S., many sleuths — professional and amateur alike — have tried to solve the case of the missing Cooper for more than four decades. The museum is hosting an array of programs and activities, from a “Meet Cooper” event where actor Jeff Hirschberg brings Cooper to life to an amateur sleuth, Tom Kaye, who analyzed some of the cash found in 1980 that was given to Cooper before he boarded the plane.

The Tacoma News Tribune also has a feature story on Kaye — you can read it here.
