A few days ago, an airliner “went back to the past from the future”! Hawaiian Airlines flight hal446 to Honolulu was supposed to take off from Auckland, New Zealand at 11:15 local time on December 31, 2017. However, due to an unexpected delay of 10 minutes, it finally set off at 0:05 on January 1, 2018.
As the time difference between Auckland and Honolulu is up to 23 hours, the flight will arrive at 10:16 a.m. Honolulu time on December 31, 2017. This wonderful coincidence makes this flight “fly back” from 2018 to 2017! Sam Sweeney, a reporter for ABC traffic 7, shared this anecdote on Twitter and wrote: due to unexpected delays, Hawaiian Airlines flight Hal 446 took off in 2018 and landed in 2017.
Due to its geographical location, New Zealand and Australia are among the first countries in the world to welcome the new year
