Staff on aircraft near Japan report seeing missile break up and fall into sea on 29 November
The crew of a Cathay Pacific flight from San Francisco to Hong Kong reported seeing a North Korean ballistic missile break up and fall out of the sky last week, the airline has said, highlighting an unforeseen danger of Pyongyang’s weapons tests.
Flight trackers put the plane close to Japan around the time of Pyongyang’s Hwasong-15 missile test on 29 November. The missile fell into the Sea of Japan.
The Hwasong-15 missile fired on 29 November flew on a steep trajectory for 50 minutes, reaching an altitude of 2,800 miles (4,500 km) and distance of 620 miles, according to North Korea.
