    Hmm, that might result in certificate action.

    1100 pounds over loaded a C-402.??

    Isn't usable load with full fuel somewhere around 1200 pounds with standard tanks.??

    Since Australia is not that far from Papua New Guinea I don't think a ferry tank would be needed.

    Oh well. Somebodies party will be delayed....

    ...Australian Federal Police said in a statement that "greed played a significant part in the syndicate's activities"...

    Do people actually get paid real money to write stuff like this?
    If so where do I apply?

    And probably missing that someone was telling them to keep loading... at gunpoint... as an alternate motivation. LOL.

    If you get the job, be sure to always ask the cops if the pilot filed a flight plan. Oh--and if the engine stalled.

    55 lb. of fentanyl would have the same street value. W&B? No problem!
