After flight staff intercepted the man, he was subdued by other passengers, Ashton said.

Shortly after take-off, passengers onboard flight MH128, traveling from Melbourne to Kuala Lumpur, tackled a man carrying a odd object as he moved towards the front of the plane.

"The plane landed safely at the airport and passengers are now exiting the plane and speaking to investigators", Victoria Police said in a statement. "He was taken out of the plane handcuffed by Australian security officers", Aziz said.

The man, who has been living in Dandenong in Melbourne's south-east, was tackled by crew members and several passengers, who overpowered him and tied him up with belts.

The plane had only been in the air for 30 minutes before it had to return.

"We are obviously concerned for the passengers and crew".

A woman named Vanessa told the 3AW programme her boyfriend had confronted the passenger as he tried to enter the cockpit. "Instead we sat there", passenger Stan Young told reporters.

While passengers suggested he was armed with a "detonator".

Leoncelli said the man began running up and down the aisle, before he was wrestled to the ground by cabin crew who took away the object from him.

No-one is believed to have been injured.

When a man reportedly threatened to blow up Malaysia Airlines flight MH128 as it was flying from Melbourne to Kuala Lumpur, a fellow passenger bravely stepped in and told the man to return to his "f***ing seat", the passenger told Australian media.

A Malaysia Airlines passenger describes coming face-to-face with the man, who claimed to have an explosive device on board the flight.

In a statement, the airline said: "Safety and security are of Malaysia Airlines' utmost priority".

The plane has now been handed back to Malaysia Airlines, which is still recovering from two major airline disasters in recent years. "At the moment, the airline does not wish to make any premature conclusions until a full investigation has been concluded". The plane returned to the airport and authorities quickly detained the passenger. "They will be offered travel on the next available flight or on other carriers".

Police wearing body armour removed the man off the plane.

Senior Constable for Victoria State Police, Adam West, stated the man never actually went into the cockpit.
