Mumble, Mumble, Syringes, Mumble, Mumble...
Thursday, a Virgin Blue jet was taxiing toward the runway, when
some passengers say they heard a 30-year-old St Kilda (Australia)
man say something about having syringes, and how the flight from
Melbourne (Victoria, Australia) mostly north to Brisbane
(Queensland, Australia) might not make it.
The PAX alerted the crew; the crew turned the plane around; and
airport security nabbed the man, identified as David Mark
No one among the 144 aboard was hurt; about three hours of delay
was the worst result.
