Del 09/01. Bags being unloaded at the Rwy 07 threshold after a phone call claiming there was a bomb onboard the aircraft. The aircraft was towed from the gate to this location where Airport Safety Officers, Airport Fire Service, NSW Police and Australian Protective Services officers searched the aircraft and the baggage that was onboard. It was later discovered to be a hoax. The aircraft later departed safely for Tonga and Apia.
