Plane overloaded with cocaine crashes on take-off, exposing alleged crime syndicate
(CNN)A light aircraft overloaded with cocaine crashed on take-off on its way to Australia, police said on Saturday, exposing a Melbourne-based crime syndicate and leading to the arrest of five men with alleged links to the Italian mafia.

The Cessna aircraft, which was stuffed with more than 500 kilograms (1,100 pounds) of cocaine, went down while attempting to leave a remote airstrip in Papua New Guinea on July 26.
Australian Federal Police said in a statement that "greed played a significant part in the syndicate's activities" and added they "cannot rule out that the weight of the cocaine had an impact on the planes (sic) ability to take off."
Five suspects were arrested in Queensland and Victoria in recent days, and have been charged with conspiring to import over 500 kilograms of cocaine and a number of related offenses. They each face a maximum sentence of life in prison if convicted. The pilot was also arrested two days later, after surrendering himself to police.

With 500 kg a Cessna should be able to take off.

Look, over here, in Papua New Guinea - a plane taking off with 1,000 pounds of cocaine - keep your eyes fixed over here, whilst we sneak in 100,000 pounds of cocaine over there.

You sure about that? Most Cessnas have a max takeoff weight of under 3000 pounds. Max as in EVERYTHING including the plane, fuel, passengers and cargo.

Anyone trying to fly 500 kilos in a Cessna, deserves a crash.

Did they find the pilot's LDS temple recommended yet?

BTW, if you need a place to store all the cocaine, there is extra space in the smush room for it.

depends where they are taking off from. a lot of PNG is high altitude, mountains, jungles, and hot tropical. it's not a great place to be flying aircraft.
