Cooper was never seen again, and the case remains the only unsolved US aircraft hijacking.
  • Northwest Orient Airlines Flight 2 ditched into Puget Sound just off the Seattle waterfront shortly after takeoff from the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport on April 2, 1956.

Wisconsin[edit]

  • Air Wisconsin Flight 671 and North Central Airlines Flight 290 collided over Lake Winnebago on June 29, 1972. All 11 people aboard both aircraft were killed, though the NTSB was unable to determine why the pilots were unable to detect each other and took no evasive action.
