This Plane Took Off In 2018 And Landed In 2017

Hawaii's time zone exists 23 hours behind that of New Zealand, enough to offset the nine-hour flight and let the flight land at 10:15 a.m.

It's incidents like these that make us believe that time travel is real, in a way.

According to FlightAware, Hawaiian Airlines Flight 446 was originally scheduled to take off from Auckland, New Zealand at 11:55 p.m. on December 31, 2017 (New Zealand time).

However, every year, one of the several hundred airlines present in the world do a sort of time travel on the occasion of new year. Eight hours later, when it landed in Honolulu, it was still December 31, 2017.

Therefore, the passengers onboard the Airbus A330 got to enjoy their New Year twice - simply by flying to a different country. The International Date Line zig-zags from the North Pole to the South Pole through the sparsely populated Pacific Ocean. The flight was travelling from Auckland, New Zealand to Honolulu.

"They can't say they never had a chance to go back in time!" one Twitter user joked. But it was thanks to a 10-minute delay that this feat of technical time-travel was made possible, reveals Mashable. However, because of a 10-minute delay, the flight didn't end up taking off until 12.05 am on Monday, Jan. 1, 2018. You would if you flew from the Southern Hemisphere to the Northern Hemisphere like 2018's first viral flight of the year.
