A flight from New Zealand made it — Travel story

A flight from New Zealand made it — Travel story

If it doesn't go quite as we hoped, we have to wait patiently until December 31 rolls around again. Well, at least it was for the passengers and flight crew aboard that flight!

No, they didn't accidentally board Marty McFly's DeLorean. These six flights from the future did experience time travel.

But it is not as uncommon as some might believe with planes crossing the International Date Line every day. It separates the Western Hemisphere from the Eastern Hemisphere. On the globe, Auckland is ahead of Honolulu by 23 hours.

Here's a fun way to spend New Year's Eve: celebrate it twice by traveling in time!

Blaze destroys 1400 cars at Liverpool parking garage
The fire broke out late Sunday afternoon at the vehicle park located next to the Echo Arena, hours before an worldwide horse show. Luckily, the fire that engulfed a multi-storey Echo Arena auto park in Liverpool did not cause any human casualty.

Flightradar24, which keeps track of flight patterns across the world, tweeted that "time travel is possible".

However, Flight HA446 was not the only one that travelled from 2018 to 2017.

After a flight that lasted nine hours and 10 minutes, it landed in Honolulu, at 10:15 a.m on December 31, 2017 (Hawaiian time). But because of the minor delay, the passengers got to ring in the new year one extra time. She even enjoyed complimentary Champagne, which seems appropriate. Unlike McFly, however, the Hawaiian airlines passengers had a bit more leg room. Something about the prospect of going back into the past is exciting. But this serendipitous opportunity to countdown twice nearly didn't happen. But a ten-minute delay in departure meant the flight finally took off on 1st January 2018. So, it actually left at 12:05 am on January 1, 2018.
