Just said during the telecast that it was an inebriated passenger who tried to get into the cockpit. So they landed the plane and he's been arrested.

QLDER!!!

An Australian man has been detained after banging on the cockpit door of a Virgin Australia plane flying to Bali, and causing a hijacking scare.

Matt Christopher Lockley, 28, a Queenslander Plumber, was apparently drunk and aggressive, and had to be restrained by the crew on Friday's flight from Brisbane..

*edit* Cheers to the Admin that did this :)

I can't believe that Queenslander was drunk and aggressive. Said nobody ever.

There's a good reason Will and Kate didn't go to QLD.

Imagine if they sent them to Caxton Street on Origin night.

We'd be kicked out of the Commonwealth.

Was at the airport in Bali when this went down. Was freaky at first, no one telling us anything. Only found out by going onto the SMH site. At KL now.

Even when overseas, drunk yobos still ruin my holiday

They got out of there quick smart and returned to the safety of Sydney. You can imagine what they thought when they landed in Ipswich

They don't take kindly to fairies around those parts. She's likely to get bashed, or glassed.

All just reinforces the fact we should grant QLD independence.

Although any resident wishing to leave would be allowed to. After a few months we'll shut the border.
