Six armed men. Eight million in unmarked bills. At the time, it was the largest cash robbery in American history. Over at the official KINGS OF MIDNIGHT page, you can watch the History Channel's excellent behind-the-scenes documentary about the 1978 Lufthansa Heist at JFK Airport, featuring interviews with principals on both sides of the law (that robbery looms large in the backstory of KINGS). "Like" the page for additional updates and exclusive content.
