On the night of August 30, pilots whose aircraft were over the eastern part of Asia received a worrying ACARS message. As one of the pilots reported on his Twitter profile, the planes received the notification “Object potentially ballistic missile object launched from North Korea”.
Well looks like my buddy in North Korea shot his missile last night. We didn’t see anything, which is probably a good thing. pic.twitter.com/8jByxPbos0
