$595k worth of cocaine found in nose of plane
14kgs of cocaine was accidentally found stashed in the nose of an American Airlines plane that came from Colombia. That's a huge $595,000 NZ dollars worth.
While working on the nose gear, an employee noticed what looked like a clump of insulation or a brick-like object. The authorities discovered the mystery item was in fact seven bricks of Columbia's finest marching powder.
It's quite ironic it was found in the nose of the aircraft...
