This flight took off in 2018 and landed in 2017

By January 3, 2018Current

TL;DR – Time travel much.

Hawaiian Airlines Flight 446 departed Auckland, New Zealand at 12:05 a.m. on Jan. 1, 2018  and after an eight-hour flight, landed in Honolulu, Hawaii at 10:16 a.m. on Dec. 31, 2017.

This is due to a time difference where Honolulu is 23 hours behind Auckland.

While I think most Singaporeans are no strangers to the time difference between this part of the world and the States as we wait (with bated breath) for new episodes of our favourite TV shows to drop, the Internet was quite blown away by this curious case of time travel.

This incident was first noticed by Sam Sweeney, a transportation reporter for Washington, D.C., station WJLA who posted it on Twitter and the Tweet has since been retweeted over 14,000 times.
