Threat Made To A Pacific Blue Flight

Thu Aug 17, 2006 6:46 pm

PASSENGERS on an international flight have been evacuated from a plane at Sydney Airport after a threat was made against the aircraft.

"A Pacific Blue flight from Nadi, Fiji, which landed at approximately 5.45pm (AEST) today has had a threat made against it," Sydney Airport Corporation spokesman Peter Vickary said.
"That aircraft has been parked away from the terminal, the passengers have been evacuated and the NSW police are now investigating."

The threat against the 737 aircraft was made from the Philippines while the plane was en route from Fiji, the Seven Network reported.
The east-west runway at Sydney Airport has been closed since the flight landed.

NSW Police said authorities are investigating reports of a suspicious device on board the plane.

"Emergency services and airport authorities are currently examining an aircraft at Sydney Airport following unconfirmed reports that a suspicious device may be on board," a NSW police spokeswoman said.

"The aircraft arrived at 5.40pm (AEST) today.

"It is located away from the terminal area, passengers have been removed from the aircraft, and authorities are currently investigating the situation."

Very little information so far about who is behind this threat
