As A Nimbus Airlines AN-12 was taking off from Yakutsk, the cargo door detached and the aircraft’s cargo of 10 tonnes of Gold, Platinum and Diamonds came out of the plane.
The cargo is at most 26 kilometers away from the runway. The runway has been closed due to a police search.
The aircraft landed at nearby Magan, which is 26 kilometres north west of Yakutsk.
