BNE closed, airport incursion of some type.

Brisbane airport currently closed. Police all over the runway. Two people arrested, one still missing. Some type of incursion. Planes circling everywhere. Busy night for the tower.

Initially tower was refusing to tell aircraft what was going on, just that the airport was closed. Later saying police on the runway, so closed.

SIA flight has been circling a lot, and now talking about heading to OOL. You can see a few aircraft heading into OOL now. Busy night down there.

There is a smashed up car on the runway and a nice bug hole in the fence.

Flight radar 24 seems to be supporting the story. SIA245 looks on way to OOL along with a VOZ AKL-BNE flight. All the domestics heading there too.

Those on the ground at OOL starting to line up for departure so maybe it's clearing/ed.

The taxiways at OOL are full of parked aircraft. They are advising the SIA he will have to backtrack, turning at the end, to vacate. He is a little worried about room Just missed it on Sky, but apparently one woman arrested.

Also apparently something about a [email protected] on the runway. Wonder if it is some type of protest stunt. Know a few of the airside ops team, they will be in for a busy night

SIA245 looks like it's having a really really bad day! Appears to have already diverted to OOL once, gotten airborne then caught up in this and heading back.

OOL tower has extended opening to 1600, but now worried about not having enough fuel onsite to get everyone back out. Just heard tower is re-opening, so JST flight just heading there now.

And they have just re-opended. Bit of a rush to get clearance from ground now, imagine there were a few waiting to go.

Turning nodes at the end should be plenty for SQ to carryout their 180.
It was a 772 was it?

Nah it was a A330. Don't know what his problem was

Poor bugger, literally a few minutes after he landed they re-opened Brisbane.

Cactus, indeed she was aiming for the threshold. It was the "not stable" call by the husband and the subsequent go around that things got out of control.

Bizarre as in it is the second time someone has driven through the fence
or done the same thing ?

Very hard to stop a committed person getting through a boundary fence,
especially with a vehicle.

Bizarre that someone would drive through the fence and try to make it to the runway once, let alone twice. At the time we wondered if it were a dry run of sorts.
