Ever since, no one knows where D.B Cooper had gone and the F.B.I has found at least 20 suspects in this case. However, this case still remains as one of the biggest aerodynamic hijacking mysteries. One commonly spread theory about D.B Cooper was that he died from falling off a plane. D.B Cooper had never had a lot of experience from parachuting off a plane. Based off of research, professional skydivers say you need at least 6 or 7 goes before surviving the jump D.B Cooper had experienced.
Additionally, in the years hence the Little Rock Nine, the southern state of Arkansas’ atmosphere has changed considerably. Melba and the Nine “returned to Central High School for [their] first reunion in 1987, [and] many Little Rock residents, white and black, greeted the nine of [them] as heroines and heroes” (Beald 3). Thirty years after the Arkansas integration scandal, people began to change their views on segregation and the value of colored people. It took years, but as time passed, people treated people of color as equals and respected integration. This proves how time influences one’s views.

A reason there was never a real shortage of pilots and observers was because while in training school many learned the harsh reality of trench warfare, and many even asked for a transfer to the Royal Flying Corps, the British air arm of the British Army. For example, one person that decided to change to the Royal Flying Corps, was Canadian William “Billy” Avery Bishop. After Bishop had learned all about the dangers that take place within trench warfare, he quickly asked to be transferred and that was possibly one of the smartest things done in WW1. Billy Bishop had second most downed enemies with 72 in WW1 only to trail the Red Baron. Billy played a huge part in the growth of Canada as an independent country, he demonstrated excellent initiative and showed that Canada is a strong country, and one that shouldn’t be messed with.
Like Jackie Robinson and Melba Pattillo Beals, Feng Ru helped improve his home country, China, when he was motivated by the United States’s industrialization to build a plane and make a similar impact on China. Feng Ru was also challenged, but unlike Robinson and Beals, his challenges came as long hours, bad working conditions, natural disasters, and the risk of death when testing planes. In paragraph six of the article about him, Maksel states, “Jammed into this small space were tools, books, journals, mechanical projects, aircraft parts—and Feng himself, who rarely finished work before 3 a.m.” This quote explains some of the conditions Feng Ru was challenged by, such as small spaces. This is also shows in paragraph seven, where the article states, “During one test flight, Feng lost control of his airplane (not an unusual occurrence), which plunged into his workshop, setting it ablaze.” This quote shows that crashing planes was not unusual, which brought a lot of risk, as Feng Ru could have gotten killed or severely injured in these crashes. Through these events, Feng Ru gained knowledge of aviation

Gary Paulsen put this man into his book Hatchet when he became a writer, he was a pilot having a heart attack while driving with Brian. Gary still remembers this sorrowful accident when he wrote Hatchet. And when he wrote or thought about Harvey, he can’t sleep well after that. ”But I did not sleep well that night when I wrote him into the book and I will not sleep well tonight thinking of his eyes. “(Guts paragraph 11).

In addition, he mentions therapy sessions as an undergrad would have helped to relieve the mental tension and stresses in accordance to his undergrad curriculum.
So what is the truth? Who is the victim? Questions like these are what made this ruling controversial. An argument the whites may use to emphasize how badly they did not want busing is that the black students were violent in their schools. For example in the book ¨Boston Against Busing¨, they describe how black kids would gang up on white ones and not allow them to play, blacks would throw rocks at white buses entering their neighborhoods
