A Virgin Australia plane had to make an emergency landing at Brisbane International Airport in Queensland, Australia, on February 17.

The plane was heading from Sydney International Airport to Los Angeles International Airport, California, when the airline received a bomb threat and decided to divert it for an emergency landing.

The plane landed uneventfully. Everyone aboard remained unhurt.

The authorities later confirmed that the threat was a hoax.
