Man kicked off Gold Coast flight by AFP

A Melbourne man has been kicked off a flight to the Gold Coast for doodling about the country’s terrorism threat level in his notepad.

The 28-year-old was ejected by AFP officers shortly after boarding a flight yesterday.

His removal was prompted by a complaint from another passenger about his notes.


It is understood that amongst other things the man wrote ‘Terror Is Made Up’ in bold letters.

After extensive questioning the man was released without charge.

Tiger Airways have confirmed they sought AFP intervention after receiving a complaint about a disruptive passenger.
