Several tons of gold bars fell from the sky in the Russian city of Yakutsk in eastern Siberia on Thursday.
Axar.az informs citing Russian media.
The precious cargo started falling out of an An-12 plane shortly after it took off from the Yakutsk airport as its backdoor broke off.
"According to the preliminary information, 172 [gold] ingots weighing about 3.4 tons were found. The cargo was scattered along the airstrip because it was incorrectly sealed," the local office of the Russian interior ministry said, adding that there were approximately nine tons of gold aboard the plane.
Neither people on the ground nor the plane crew were harmed in the incident, the ministry added.
