Russian Antonov An-12 loses its $368 million cargo of silver, platinum and diamonds on takeoff from Yakutsk airport

Soumis
 
The plane with ten tons of silver, platinum and diamonds lost part of its cargo after taking off from Yakutsk airport today. The Nimbus Airlines Antonov An-12 cargo suffered problems during takeoff. Part of the cargo fell out of the hold all over the runway. The plane then dropped some bars of silver as far as 26 kilometres from the airport. (www.airlive.net) Plus d'info...

This is as funny as it gets. Any freight dog knows there are wing bend, max floor, max takeoff weight limitations and they get exceeded regularly and bigly on occasion. The funny part is this time it wasn't dog food, oil field equipment ,or sacks of potatoes. That's what has been happenin since it was built "at least" before 1973! Wish they had been over my house. Can you say structural failure?

Or a very clever conspiracy...just be in your bomb shelter once all those silver
raisins and peanuts pound your house to dust.

No one dropped out of a plane yet?

And, just to toss my own thought in, I'll put a wager out there that vodka was involved, too!!

Why would anyone send such valuable cargo on a single airplane?

Oh, I see they are Russians. All the intelligent people are intefering with American elections.
