Finding a Motherload in the Airline Loo

When you hear someone mention someone forgot to flush their “treasure” down the toilet, usually that’s a euphemism.

In this case, a treasure trove was literally found in the toilet on a Flydubai plane.

According to Time Magazine’s website:

“Last week, an aircraft cleaning crew found 280 gold bars worth more than $1 million inside the toilet of a plane.

The Middle East discount airline Flydubai plane flew from Dubai to the Bangladeshi capital of Dhaka, when the cleaning crew came onboard. After they found the treasure trove, police were called to the aircraft where they seized the 70-pound stash of gold.

Looks like someone was in deep doo-doo and tried to flush the evidence.
