In Arizona, a train's baggage car is robbed of a large payroll, prompting an investigation led by a railroad official-insurance investigator team.
The aircraft in the scene where Joe and Charlie go to the airport is a 1940 Waco UPF-7, tail number N30107. About 600 were built between 1937 and 1942. Many were used as trainers during WWII. As of 2016 this plane's registration is still active, possibly indicating it is still flying.
There's no such thing as a perfect crime. Just a lucky one. But their luck will run out.
In the robbery, Dr. Paul Brucker removes three small cash bags from the safe and puts them in his suitcase. But the heist was $500,000 in small bills. Even all new $20 bills wrapped and stacked together would make a pile more than nine feet high. With mixed used small bills ($5 to $20) that couldn't be traced, it would take a large suitcase to handle the money. And, it would weigh at least 60 pounds.
