Just recently, in Argentina, a group of crew members and airport ground staff on a KLM Cargo 747 operated by Martinair Holland have been arrested for drug smuggling. It was in the aircraft after customs and police searched the aircraft to find one of the largest drug hauls to be found on an aircraft.
About 80 kilograms of 82 bricks of cocaine totaling to a value of 8 million dollars was found in the 747.
Footage of the incident has been released of the drugs being loaded onto the aircraft:
KLM and Martinair have vowed to fully cooperate with the Argentinian authorities’ investigation of this entire fiasco and resolving a major attempt at hauling drugs onto an aircraft.
