Queenstown Airport under bomb threat

Authorities have found no evidence of a bomb on a Qantas plane, after a scare at Queenstown Airport.

A police bomb squad searched the plane after a note was found on Sunday afternoon suggesting there was an explosive on board.

Aviation Security and police found no evidence of a bomb.

Baggage and the terminal building were still being searched and authorities were making inquiries with passengers.

A police media spokeswoman said a cleaner found the note on the plane after it landed and alerted police about 3pm.

I hope investigations manage to track down the idiot who did this.
