North Korea missile: Inconsistencies spotted in Hwasong-15 images

The airline rerouted its daily flights between the South Korean capital Seoul and Los Angeles after a North Korean missile launch in July, the report said quoting a spokesperson for Singapore Airlines. Korean Air hasn't specified how close its flight was to the missile.

Meanwhile, Senator Lindsey Graham said Sunday on "Face the Nation" that preemptive war in North Korea is "becoming more likely" as the country's improving missile technology presents an increasing threat. Prior to last week's ballistic missile launch, the USA spotted North Korea's military making preparations.

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

News of Singapore Airlines' change followed a crew on board a Cathay Pacific aircraft seeing a North Korean missile blow up over the Sea of Japan last week. Pyongyang said the projectile flew as high as 4,475 kilometers (2,800 miles) before plummeting down into waters off the western coast of Japan.

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


Minutes later, the pilot of another Korean Air plane reported seeing a similar flash of light, airline spokesman Cho Hyun-mook said, as cited by AP. However, it said it would not be changing any routes as a result of the incident. "We remain alert and 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.

The International Civil Aviation Organization in October had condemned the missile tests as it threatened the safety of commercial flights but it had little effect on the North Korean regime. One of the missiles just missed hitting an Air France plane flying from Tokyo to Paris, France 24 reported. It also claimed the missile is capable of hitting the entire USA mainland.

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.
