A Russian plane loaded with gold and silver bars lost the precious metals on take-off on Thursday. With this, the runway was scattered with the bars of gold and silver.
The incident took place when the Antonov plane was taking off after refuelling in an airport at Yakutsk in Siberia when its cargo door flew open. And nearly 200 bars from the kupol gold mine in the remote Chukotka region tumbled out.
The cargo of bars of concentrated ore used to transport the precious metals weighed 9.3 tonnes.
Ok. Gold rain drops looked that way on Yakutsk Airport’s runway. Pretty heavy and sonorous… Video by transport police from Whatsapp. pic.twitter.com/YYiO1P6lh7
