This has been in the media the last 24 hours or so... Hijack of Virgin Blue aircraft...
Our thoughts... Be very careful of anything that you read about aviation in the media. BECAUSE, in the rush to get the story out, incorrect facts can sometimes be reported. If you read the articles or watch the news and don't know this, then you are literally feeding your fear.
This is the press release from Virgin Blue:
"There are incorrect reports that a Virgin Australia aircraft was hijacked on route to Denpasar this is not correct. The aircraft in question has landed safely and at no point was the safety of our passengers ever in question. There was an unruly passenger on board and the authorities are removing him on the ground."
