Ballsy Thieves Steal Gigantic Jet Engines From Israeli Air Force Base

Now this is a heist that takes some serious daring. Or complete ineptitude on the part of the robbed. Either way, scrap-wranglers boosted eight F-15 and F-18 jet engines from Tel Nof air base in Israeli. How? Good question.

Each engine weighed several tons. And there were eight of them. How do you walk out of a high security installation with eight gigantic fighter engines? Probably with help from someone on the inside—Israel says "The military police have opened an inquiry into the matter." This is extremely embarrassing, to say the least. Time to change the locks, guys. [AFP via DefenseTech]
