Three Tons of Gold Falls From Russian Cargo Plane

A bizarre incident in the sky over Siberia saw nearly 200 gold bars tear through a cargo plane and plummet to the ground.

The massive cache of bullion, which weighed a whopping three tons, was  part of an even larger haul of treasure which included silver and  diamonds that were packed into the plane.

It is believed that these particular pieces of gold were not properly  secured inside the plane when it took to the air and, shortly  thereafter, the crushing weight of the bars dislodged a hatch on the  vessel.

In turn, 172 gold bars and one rather large piece of the plane fell from  the sky and rained down onto the runway below, leaving it looking as if  it had been poorly paved with gold.
