Anna Nicole's Body Loaded onto Private Jet

3/2/2007 8:57 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Minutes ago, the casket containing the body of Anna Nicole Smith was loaded onto a private plane at Miami International Airport for transport to the Bahamas for her funeral.

This followed an almost hour-long journey, during which the casket was accompanied by a significant police escort, and as local news sources reported, highways in south Florida were blocked off to traffic to avoid any tampering with the body.

The Miami Herald reported that at least 60 members of the news media and six helicopters were following the body on its trip to the airport.
