    The plane must have snorted it up during the takeoff run.

    Musta been those big white center lines. I have some questions though. Was this supposed to be a connecting flight to a final delivery destination or did they know it was 'flagged' for some MRO? Was it destined for a fellow ramp rat/mechanic who's life might be at stake now? Is a 'Clintonian' three bullet suicide awaiting that person for failure? OR, was it an inside job by the crew who didn't 'notice' it during the pre-flight walk around? Love to here the follow up on this one.

    On many aircraft hard to inspect the entire nosegear well as several of the well doors cycle closed. Not sure what type of aircraft this was but imagine whoever placed it there must have been familiar with the area and had the ability to secure it into a "secluded" area.

    $434,000 I believe. Probably a typo and you'd need a fleet to hide $434 million's worth.

    If you're implying that I am experienced with weights of cocaine by experience, you're highly mistaken. Although I have/had a few vices in my life, I've never touched one Iota of cocaine as I've personally seen it ruin a few friends(and others) lives completely and in relatively short order. What I AM fairly experienced in is, mathematics/weights & measures/dimensions/spaces needed to hold things. Unless forward MLG wheel well spaces has increased 10 fold, it's highly unlikely they could hold 10 times the weight reported/typed of any substance. I didn't even have to smoke a joint to figure that one out! o_O;)

    Not at all, M'lud! Just referring to your ability to weigh things up pretty quickly!
