On This Day;

In 1978, half a dozen masked robbers raided the Lufthansa Airlines cargo building at JFK Airport in New York, making off with more than $5 million in cash and almost $1 million in jewellery.

The Lufthansa heist, as it is known, is considered one of the greatest heists in history and despite arrests many years later, much of the money has never been recovered.

Breakfast producer Zak Stuart joins Tom Mann and Zoe Kounadis to elaborate on this fascinating event in history.
