On Wednesday, it was reported that a North Korean rocket traveled above the airspace of China Southern Airlines flight CZ628. The plane was traveling from Tokyo to Shenyang and was carrying 220 people.
Seven minutes after the rocket traveled its path, the plane flew just 10 kilometers below the rocket’s path.
It might not sound that close, but seven minutes away from being underneath a rocket doesn’t sound very reassuring to me.
