No bomb found in plane security scare
Thursday Aug 17 21:52 AEST

About 100 passengers were evacuated from a plane at Australia's largest airport on Thursday night after an anonymous caller warned there was a suspicious package on board.

NSW Bomb Squad officers scoured the Pacific Blue 737, which landed at Sydney airport from Fiji, but found nothing and the search was called off at 7.45pm (AEST).

The plane was parked away from the terminal while an exhaustive search was carried out. Passengers were herded off the plane and separated into groups to be screened by security officials.

I'd like to know when the next scare is "oh my god the Prime Ministers put our nation at risk by unreservedly joining the US in an illegal invasion"
Isn't that an annual event now? :D

Of course you could take the approach that the team from the Chaser took, and purchase tickets (using self checkin) in the name of "Al Kyder" and "Terry Wrist" and have them announce those passengers to board or delay the flight...
