The possible unintended consequences of North Korea’s ICBM missile launch tests are starting to become clear. An Air France passenger jet with over 300 people on board apparently passed within 10 minutes of where the latest North Korean missile landed in the Sea of Japan.
Flight data from the time of the ICBM’s landing on Friday indicates that the aircraft that was potentially in danger was Air France flight 293, traveling from Tokyo to Paris with 323 people on board.
The plane’s flight path shows the Boeing 777 traveling west of Hokkaido as the North Korean ICBM was airborne. The Japanese Defense Ministry said the ICBM landed about 93 miles northwest of Okushiri Island.
