Due to missile tests of the DPRK, civil aviation flights were suspended on the west coast of the United States

54

North Korea on Tuesday morning (at about half past one in the morning Moscow time) launched a ballistic missile into the Sea of ​​Japan. Or, as reported in the Japanese media, "an unidentified long-range munition." Due to missile tests of the DPRK on the west coast of the United States, civilian flights were suspended aviation.


The suspension of flights was carried out by order of the United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), which applies to all airports in the Pacific coast of the United States. The city of San Diego media reported that civil aircraft were prohibited from taking off for seven to 45 minutes. In doing so, they referred to radio communications and statements by officials of the international airport of this settlement. In other cities in the western United States, flights were postponed for up to 1,5 hours.

San Diego airport spokeswoman Sabrina Lo Piccolo told reporters that the order to suspend flights (the so-called ground stop) did not say anything about its reason. The FAA declined to comment on this information.

The FAA Ground Stop is an order that instructs aircraft to remain at their departure points. Such orders are usually given due to bad weather, equipment interruptions or extreme situations. For the first time, the FAA issued such an order after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. On Tuesday morning, the weather on the Pacific coast of the United States was flying.

Subsequently, there were statements that the directive on the suspension of flights was issued by the NORAD command - the North American Aerospace Defense Command. The reason was precisely the missile tests in the DPRK.

    This is such an accuracy of American early warning systems and they want to say that they are ahead of the rest of the world in armament. Disgrace, I hope this is true. And what will happen when we start Thunder, it's a pity that according to the agreement it is necessary to prevent otherwise. toilet bowl, may be confused with the big red button.

      No. This is the precision of American propaganda.
      They are simply stirring up the discontent of the DPRK, otherwise the people have begun to forget about this country. So they reminded me.

      Shame, I hope it's true.

      From the moment Kim sent the striped AUG through the forest, the Yankees forgot the way to it. Then the Koreans promised to spray the base on Guam, and now the coast is already swollen - Kim has something to know that they are already trying not to squeal loudly ...

    Of course, I am not an expert in this matter, but even so it is clear that the Americans "include the fool." Where is the west coast of the United States and where is the Japanese sea. And yet, it was not the Koreans who tested the air defense systems.

      as they say there was some kind of confusion. human error. like the civil aviation representative at norad got it wrong. norad has issued a launch notice. but norad did not issue an order to land everyone.
      one way or another, the error was noticed in 7 minutes, but as I understand it took more time to resolve.

      At first I doubted whether they really are like that or think that they are the smartest, and everyone around them is like that. Over time, I realized that "two in one" were uniquely fused here.

      When the average American is asked to show Ukraine on a map, for which he demands freedom from Russia - the first thing.
      When they tell the whole world that their missiles in Poland are not against Russia, but against Iran - the second.

        I thought that flights, as it were, should take place regularly. And planes fly in one direction, but in fact sometimes the sky is clear, and on other days everything is slashed in the morning.

    If this is really the case, then one of two things: either the Americans ignited the panic from scratch, or the DPRK decided to check the American trackers. Purely theoretically, they could launch a missile not almost at the zenith as usual, but along a combat trajectory, at a range close to the limit, in the direction of the States, but with a change in direction (so that the payload would fall into the Sea of ​​Japan) after turning on the 2-3 stage.

      run. What Eun does.
      Now, what to think of the one on the other side?
      Last time it flew 5.
      Today we launched it again, and probably again at 5000.
      Wrong answer (maybe 5000, maybe this time all 8000)

    North Korea on Tuesday, January 11, conducted successful tests of a hypersonic missile, according to the Korea Central Telegraph Agency ...

    I believe if the mericatos rests against signing any documents, on the upcoming negotiations, we will pull the DPRK to ourselves, partially or as far as possible unblocking the sanctions. In parallel, concretely consolidating the alliance with the PRC. And then the merikatos will be nobody, and nothing.

      The most important thing now is not to withdraw the troops from Ukraine, even if they are not there. The Americans have already asked for 5 times for a day that we withdraw them. hiAnd so the Koreans reported, the range is 1 km, the speed is Mach 000, the accuracy is calculated. The speed is confirmed by the "tailors".
