Repairs to plane have uncovered $595K worth of cocaine

Authorities have said there was 14 kg's of cocaine accidentally found stashed in the nose of an American Airlines plane that came from Colombia. That's a huge 595,000 NZ Dollars worth.

While working on the nose gear, an employee noticed what looked like a clump of insulation or a brick-like object. The authorities discovered the mystery item was in fact seven bricks of cocaine.

It's quite ironic it was found in the nose of the aircraft...
