  • Singapore Airlines Changes Flight Routes Over N.Korean Missiles

"A Korean Air jet flying to Incheon from San Francisco reported to Japanese controllers that its flight crew saw a flash from what was believed to be the North Korean missile", a Korean Air spokesman said.

North Korea has tested an Intercontinental ballistic missile, which posed no threat to the USA and its allies, said the Pentagon. "Posting the two images of the recently launched Hwasong 15 missile that were made public by the North Korean regime, Langbroek pointed out the difference in the star constellations visible in the background".

In the early hours of Wednesday, North Korea test-fired what is believed to be its most technologically advanced long-range ballistic missile.

Pyongyang reported that its latest missile flew as high as 2,800 miles.

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.

"We have been in contact with relevant authorities and industry bodies as well as with other carriers".

Cathay said there was no current plan to change air routes, saying its plane was "far from the event location". North Korea likely chooses splashdown points for each stage that avoid airline routes, said Vipin Narang, an expert on nuclear strategy at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. "We remain alert and (will) review the situation as it evolves".

Despite the missile being close enough to be seen by the pilots, the airline is not planning to change its flying routes at the moment.

Under the guidelines of the International Civil Aviation Organization-a United Nations agency that oversees air safety-nations launching threats to air safety must "issue risk advisories regarding any threats to the safety of civilian aircraft operating in their airspace".

North Korea has a reputation of altering images it releases to the world, tampering with everything from Kim Jong Un's ears to hovercrafts conducting an amphibious landing.

The chances of a plane being struck randomly by a missile are "billions to one", according to CNN aviation safety analyst David Soucie.
