I heard on the news this morning that a Qantas 767 had to perform a go around at Auckland because somehow, a car had breached the airport perimiter. The Qantas pilot, saw the cars headlights, and performed a go around. Any one else have any info?

Well it seems pretty weird that you could drive onto an airport. What about fencing etc.

Jet Forced To Divert in New Zealand

AUCKLAND, New Zealand (AP) - A Boeing 767 carrying 218 passengers pulled up shortly before landing after a car was spotted traveling along the runway of New Zealand's largest airport, officials said Thursday.

The captain of the Qantas Airways flight aborted the landing 50 seconds before touching down Tuesday night when he saw the car's headlights.

The plane landed without incident at Auckland International Airport a few minutes later after the car had been cleared from the runway.

Police arrested Makoto Takahashi, a Japanese man living in Auckland, who said he drove onto the runway after becoming lost.

It was unclear how the car came to be on the runway. Airport corporate general manager Chris Curley said officials had investigated the incident, but refused to give details.

Perhaps he got confused by the controller giving clearance for a plane to taxi?
Sorry...

Latest update - Police are now saying that the driver of the car will face further charges because he was breaching his bail conditions by returning to the airport. More than just a Japanese tourist becoming lost, I guess.

Even more frightening that the Auckland incident is the incident which has occured today with a Qantas four engined aircraft leaving Cairns or Darwin i can remember. I assume it is a BAE-146 as only 60 people were on board.

After takeoff 2 of the 4 engines failed and smoke entered the cockpit, this could very easily have turned into a catastrophe
