A serious runway incursion incident occurred at Perth Airport, Australia on 28 April 2018, involving two Qantas Boeing 737-800 aircraft.
VH-XZM (QF567 from Sydney) landed on runway 03 and exited the runway on taxiway Juliet 2 (J2). The flight crew was required to hold short of runway 06. The aircraft passed the holding point, and stopped just past the holding point.

VH-VZL (QF582 to Sydney), another Boeing 737, was departing on runway 06 and had commenced its take-off roll. The controller instructed the flight crew to stop immediately. The flight crew conducted a rejected take-off and the aircraft stopped on the runway near taxiway J2. They were then instructed to vacate the runway at taxiway Alpha (A).

The area where the incident occurred is annotated on the En Route Supplement Australia (ERSA) as a runway incursion ‘hot spot’. The holding point on taxiway J2 prior to runway 06 is marked with a runway stop bar.
