A Silo Full of Cash


On the same tip as Geoff's previous post about discovering secret Soviet submarine bases, "a team of thieves that broke into an abandoned missile silo not far from the Russian city of Kostroma in search of nonferrous metals was shocked to find the shaft packed with Soviet money bills", that apparently blew out all over the country side upon cracking open the good old misile silo lid. Mosnews has the story. (via)

I may be in the Army not the Navy, but I'm pretty sure that's a submarine pictured; probably a Delta(III/IV?).

Interesting.

I wish I could read Russian that so I could go to this site (www.vokruginfo.ru) where the photo came from, and maybe dig up a little more on this.
