Manchester Police have arrested a man on suspicion of making a hoax bomb threat after a plane was escorted into the city's airport by an RAF fighter jet.




The emergency came when the pilot of Qatar Airways flight QR23 from Doha to Manchester reported concerns about a possible device.

Josh Hartley, who boarded the plane at Doha, said: "The flight was pretty calm all the way through, but some people are shaken up, quite a few. It was scary."

The alarm is thought to have been raised when a passenger passed a note to a member of the cabin crew.




The message is understood to have been passed on to the captain, who alerted air traffic control - prompting the quick reaction alert Typhoon to be scrambled.

Passenger Aurang Zeb, 60, said the plane landed and was taken to an area well away from the terminal and other planes, where they waited for 45 minutes before moving closer to the terminal.

He said: "Then I saw all the police with guns. Lots of police everywhere.




I live in Greater Manchester & I was in my bedroom earlier before playing xbox and I heard a plane fly over my house but I could hear the engine of the plane as the plane was really low and I thought nothing of it and then I checked the news and then I found out about this.
I am just happy no one was hurt.

I live in Greater Manchester also.
This was a stupid things to do, he should receive a hefty punishment in my opinion as a message. Terrorist actions should not be taken lightly, even if it is a hoax or not.

Exactly, He should receive a extreme punishment, he probably did the note for a laugh or something but at the end of the day its no laughing matter!
