Helicopter Heist in 1980's Libya

No, not a team of thieves using a helicopter in a heist -- a heist OF a helicopter.

The Chadian Army captured a Soviet-built Mi-24 (Hind) attack helicopter in a border war, but had no way to fly it or transport it away from Libya. The CIA put together a complex mission to lift the Hind with a US Chinook helicopter and raced a sandstorm south to a safe airport - and now stored at "Hanger 51" of a secret US warehouse.
