    With the price of parts for aircraft, I am actually kinda surprised that this doesn't happen more often to the ramp mummies out there.

    Pretty ballsy stealing a plane. If inoperable, the whole plane is gone? Sawzall to cut up and part it out? Wow.

    That is exactly what I thought when I first heard this. If not, that took some serious balls or some seriously cooked brain cells....
