On 25 November 2007, a Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation G-IV aircraft, registered HB-IKR, was being operated on a charter flight from Brisbane Airport, Queensland to Sydney, New South Wales. At about 2225 Eastern Standard Time the pilot in command of the aircraft commenced a take-off run on taxiway Alpha, adjacent to the active runway 01. The aerodrome controller (ADC) instructed the pilot to cancel the take-off clearance. The crew stopped the takeoff and the ADC instructed them to taxi to the end of the runway for a takeoff using the full runway length. There were no injuries, or damage to the aircraft or airport infrastructure.

The investigation found that a combination of a cockpit equipment failure, inadequate pilot rest, deficient cockpit resource management practices and unfamiliarity with the airport layout were likely factors that lead to the occurrence.
