New Zealand Airport Evacuated

A bomb scare has forced the partial evacuation of the airport in Frankton, New Zealand, after a cleaner found a “message” about an explosive device on board a plane that landed in Queenstown Airport. The note was found at about 3 p.m. local time on board a Qantas QF121 that had come in from Sydney, RT reported. A police spokeswoman confirmed that “some sort of message about a bomb” was discovered on a plane that is now sitting on the tarmac, the New Zealand Herald reports. The police said that all the passengers had left the plane when the suspicious note was discovered. Photos shared on Twitter showed people standing outside the terminal. After the initial search by aviation security, the police found no evidence of explosives after searching the plane, the police said in a statement. Authorities continued to search through baggage and the terminal building, while also questioning passengers. After roughly a two-hour search, authorities have cleared the airport, but promised to continue the investigation.
