North Korea's latest missile test raises safety concerns for civilian flights

North Korea's latest missile test raises safety concerns for civilian flights

However, South Korea says that the North Korean government regularly fails to issue these notices when conducting missile launches.

Singapore Airlines changed the route of its Seoul-Los Angeles flights in July due to concerns over North Korean missiles, Singapore's Channel NewsAsia reported Tuesday. It hadn't previously announced the change.

USA officials told CNN that the re-entry vehicle likely failed during North Korea's most recent missile test, and the crew of a Cathay Pacific flight claims to have seen the missile explode during re-entry, although David Wright, a senior physicist with the Union of Concerned Scientists, suspects that the crew actually saw stage separation and second-stage ignition during the ascent. The new flight route goes further north to avoid the Sea of Japan.

Korean Air pilots on two different planes also reported seeing flashes of light believed to have been the North Korean missile while flying over Japan, airline spokesman Cho Hyun-mook said.

How Analysts Feel About Tanger Factory Outlet Centers, Inc. (NYSE:SKT)?
Several other hedge funds and other institutional investors also recently made changes to their positions in SKT. (NYSE:SKT). KeyCorp reiterated a "hold" rating on shares of Tanger Factory Outlet Centers in a research note on Friday, August 25th.

The ICBM was sacked on a lofted trajectory rather than a minimum energy trajectory, putting more structural stress on the missile's re-entry vehicle but reducing the duration and intensity of temperature-based stresses.

Shortly after the test, a spokesperson for the U.S. Defense Department acknowledged that the North Korean missile "flew through busy airspace used by commercial airliners". "At the moment, no one is changing any routes or operating parameters", Cathay said. The French airline expanded its no-fly zone over North Korea as a result.

North Korea launched an ICBM last week that was witnessed by a passenger plane's flight crew.

Guidelines issued by the International Civil Aviation Organization, a U.N. agency tasked with governing air safety, state that nations have the "responsibility to issue risk advisories regarding any threats to the safety of civilian aircraft operating in their airspace". The chances are "billions to one", aviation safety analyst David Soucie told CNN.
