A pilot on a flight from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport accidentally activated a hijacking alert, causing widespread panic.
Several minutes after passengers boarded an Air Europa flight to Madrid, the pilot activated the hijacking alert for a yet unknown reason. At that point, there were 27 passengers and crew on the plane.
Emergency forces were called to all runways of the busy airport.
Dutch security forces later announced that the passengers and crew on the flight had been safely evacuated.
Dutch police continue to investigate the incident, even after it became clear that the pilot had mistakenly activated the alert.
