North Korea missile 'seen by Cathay Pacific airline crew'

Different In another post Dr Langbroek highlighted that one image has Andromeda in the background and another has Orion

The decision comes after Pyongyang's continuous missile tests in the Sea of Japan disregarding global opposition.

While North Korea has claimed that their new weapon has put all parts of the United States within reach of a devastating strike, US officials say the latest test was a failure since the missile broke apart on re-entry as the airliner witnessed. However, South Korea says that the North Korean government regularly fails to issue these notices when conducting missile launches.

Channel NewsAsia found out that Singapore Airlines (SIA) has taken steps to reroute its Seoul-Los Angeles flights since July this year, following Pyongyang's July 27 missile launch into the Sea of Japan.

The missile was far from the plane, and the plane's operation was unaffected, Cathay said, adding it had informed other carriers and relevant authorities.

A spokesperson for The International Air Transport Association told reporters this week that North Korea has an obligation to provide advance notice of any missile tests, but not surprisingly, North Korea has never done so.

The crew of the Cathay Pacific Airways flight says they witnessed the rogue nation's latest weapon break apart and explode as it traveled through the sky early Wednesday morning on November 29.

"There are no current routes that fly through a risky zone", said an Asiana Airlines official.

Travelers who are concerned should know the chances of an airplane colliding with a missile are extremely low: One safety analyst estimates that it is less than a billion to one.

North Korea's new missile was reportedly a new type of nuclear-capable ICBM called the Hwasong-15.

"The problem is if the test goes awry in any way, and debris starts falling in.more heavily trafficked areas", he said in an email.
