I ran across this and I first thought this was a "James Bond Thriller" until i read the news some more. After reading several different articles from Fox, Reuters, and the Guardian and some others, I have several synopsis on the thieves. The heist could be a crime of opportunity, corruption is rampant over there, the corruption was a holdover from the Soviet Union and was acerbated by the fall of the Soviet Union and the rise of the Russian Mafia whose members include many members of the KGB after they got "RIF'ed" during the turmoil in the 90's. Or it was the work of a hostile foreign power, and no it ain't the CIA, they are not the steely eyed spymasters of old, where political correctness has taken over the organization. I am leaning toward the Chinese Communist, their MSS has been very active and effective in targeting other nations Feinstein and Swalwell is the most recent example when he got caught in a "Honeypot" and Pelosi still put him on an an intelligence committee anyway. I'm not sure if the "FSS" will be successful in solving the case.
A top secret Russian aircraft dubbed the “Doomsday plane” has been plundered. The story could have come straight from the pages of spy fiction. The reality however might be a little more humdrum, though no less interesting!
