Based on a true story, on January 9th, 2009, a Cessna Citation X is
delivered to Luanda, Angola. The American pilots delivering the aircraft will stay in Africa for several months training pilots and mechanics of Air26, an aircraft charter company.


The Americans believe the jet they are delivering is to be used to fly top government officials and high net worth individuals from Europe or Asia, to Angola. But ultimately the jet will be used to fly just one individual, or more correctly stated, a rendering of that one individual, Benjamin Franklin, in the form of US one hundred dollar bills; eventually transporting millions of dollars in cash!

No credit cards, or checks accepted in this country, everything must be paid for in cash. It is a normal occurrence to pay for jet fuel ($9,000 for a fill-up) from a ten thousand dollar stack of $100 bills. Although there were other red flags, the American pilots were oblivious to the real mission in store for this aircraft, the largest known bank heist not of the century, but of all recorded history.
