Logic Puzzle 20

Recommended Posts

Did he use one of the chutes to prevent someone else from killing him?

That depends on how you define "use". But the most helpful answer is no.

 

If so, was the person on the plane?

No

 

Did this scenario actually happen?

Not to my knowledge, but it was inspired by a true story.

 

Did a lone man hijack a plane, steal money and jewelry from the passengers then ask for two parachutes and then jump out of the plane* over a forest?

No

Dude, that's the first thing I thought of when I read the OP. Win.

Kudos, hunches are quite helpful in this game...

I was thinking D.B. Cooper as well.

Thank you. I was trying to figure out his name but couldn't find it online. This whole logic puzzle does seem to resemble him.

I don't know how much of a hint it will be given how much you already have, but this puzzle was indeed inspired by the "D.B. Cooper" incident... But some important things have been changed, so don't treat anything I haven't said as fact...

Did asking for two parachutes deprive anyone the opportunity to pursue him and kill him?

 

Had he not asked for two, would he have died due to the impact of jumping out of the plane?

 

Did he discard one upon receipt or did he utilize both?

Was there someone on the plane actively trying to stop the hijacker?

 

Was the discarded parachute used for some other purpose before it was discarded?

Did he take the second parachute in order to prevent someone else from being able to follow after him after he left the plane?

 

EDIT: Nevermind... I didn't read the previous answers.

Was the first parachute he used defective?

 

If so, did someone sabotouge it?

 

Was it just a mistake in manufacturing?

 

Did one of the parachutes have a tracking device on it?

Was one of the two chute not able to be used because it was a training pack that was permanently sewed shut, thus he was forced to make his escape using the other?

What was stolen: Cash? Bonds? Jewelry? Precious metal? Artwork? Paperwork?

Where the goods stolen: taken from the passengers? Demanded in return for the release of passenger? Already on the plane?

Was he bailing out of the plane?

As far as I know, "to bail out" in this context means "to jump from an aircraft", which I already said he did. If you mean something else, let me know.

 

Was there any reason to use the other chute if he didnt open it?

I debated the WMD topic, so I know there are a million ways to use the word "use", but for our purposes, he did not use the second parachute. There was a reason he asked for it though.

 

What was stolen: Cash? Bonds? Jewelry? Precious metal? Artwork? Paperwork?

Irrelevant, lets say lots of cash.

 

Where the goods stolen: taken from the passengers?

No

 

Demanded in return for the release of passengers?

Yes

 

Already on the plane?

No

 

Does the robbery have anything to do with the answer outside of the fact that it clued us on in that he hijacked the plane?

Well, as I just said above, it was more of a ransom than a robbery.

What are we trying to figure out? What was stolen or why he asked for the second parachute.

Why he asked for the second chute and how doing so prevented his death. Nothing was "stolen"; there was a ransom but the amount and type of goods are not important.

Was the second chute damaged in any way (stabbed, shot, etc.)?

 

Did someone try to attack him in the plane and the chute absorbed the impact?

Had he not grabbed the second chute, would the fall have killed him?

 

Would another person have killed him?

 

Would he have died before he jumped?
