A multi-million dollar RAAF jet engine fell from a truck on a major road in Sydney recently and the engine is estimated to be worth $40-50 million dollars. The truck carrying the engine stopped, and that's when the cheap $20 strap holding it in place snapped and caused it to fall.

Ouch. CF6-80e1 is a high bypass turbo fan. Runs around $16mil USD. Likely its ok after that fall due to the carrier, but now its not flight safe without being overhauled and checked. Shame.
