The weather is known for being a bit abnormal at times with many different things falling from the sky.

However this one take the cake... more than three tons of gold bars fell from the sky in Russia on Thursday.

The hatch of a cargo plane malfunctioned and fell open.

The aircraft was loaded with gold, platinum and diamonds.

9.3 tons of gems and precious metals pummeled to the ground.

Authorities later recovered 172 gold bars weighing 3.4 tons, according to an Interior Ministry official.
