It took 2018 years but it seems time travel has finally been invented.
A flight leaving Auckland in New Zealand bound for Honolulu in Hawaii took off in 2018 but landed last year after an unexpected delay.
Sam Sweeney spotted the occurrence and posted about it on Twitter.
‘Because of an unexpected delay, Hawaiian Airlines flight 446 took off in 2018 and will land in 2017 #timetravel,’ Mr Sweeney wrote.
Hawaiian Airlines flight HAL446 left Auckland Airport at 12.05am on the 1/1/2018 and arrived in Honolulu at 10.16am on the 31/12/2017 local time.
Auckland, New Zealand is 23 hours ahead of Honolulu meaning the plane took off in 2018 and landed in 2017.
The post attracted a number of comments.
‘So, we have time travel, but still no flying cars,’ one Twitter user wrote.
‘So, in theory, the passengers could have celebrated the new year and will get a chance to do it for the 2nd time in 24 hours,’ another said.
