    Gold bars worth $1.1m found in plane toilet in India




    The plane on which the 1kg (2.2lb) gold bars were found on Tuesday had reportedly come from Bangkok, local media reported, before making stops in India.
    "The cleaning staff of the airport were going though their routine duties and found two bags in the toilets of the plane," airport director BP Mishra told AFP news agency.
    He was quoted as saying that no arrest had been made in connection with the find, though OneIndia News said a suspect was being questioned.

    The gold has been valued at between 70m and 90m rupees (up to $1.4m or £890,000).

    I've heard of crappin' bricks, but I never thought they would be gold.

    Gold is where you find it, so they say.

    I'm still wondering why anyone besides the person who hid it and the one who found it heard anything about it.

    how many planes have you flew on as of late... no meals, all too often not on shcedule

    Two trains of thought...
    1. this was to have been a exchange point for someone on the next flight.... and they chickened out (or missed the flight)...
    2. they are fake, gold plated base metal and only worth a few hundred bucks...
