Flight brawl halts plane on tarmac in airport chaos
A brawl on a Townsville-bound plane halted an aircraft filled with passengers on a tarmac as police rush to diffuse the situation.
Initial reports indicate police were called to Townsville Airport about 1.15pm to reports of an aggressive person who started fighting with others on a Virgin flight.

Queensland Police confirmed the woman was speaking with police and had disembarked the plane.
