North Korea Probably Tampered With Its Missile Launch Pictures

North Korea Probably Tampered With Its Missile Launch Pictures

The North Korean missile was sacked very high up, reaching an altitude of 4,475 kilometers (2,780 miles) before falling back into the Sea of Japan about 950 kilometers (600 miles) from where it was launched.

McDowell told CNN he believed the images were only edited for aesthetic purposes because the missile in the picture did not appear to have been altered.

North Korea has conducted most of this year's missiles tests during daylight hours, and background landmarks help analysts locate exactly where a missile was launched.

Singapore Airlines officials made the decision after an Air France plane glided just east of an area where a North Korean missile had flown just minutes earlier in July.

The crew of the Cathay Pacific Airways flight says they witnessed the rogue nation's latest weapon break apart and explode as it traveled through the sky early Wednesday morning on November 29. For the time being, there are no planned changes to existing Cathay Pacific routes.

"We do take the matter seriously and are monitoring the situation very closely and will reroute our flight paths where necessary", a Cathay Pacific spokesperson added. The airline said that its flight was "far from the event location" and unaffected by the missile - but that the crew reported the sighting to air traffic control in Japan in line with procedures.

The carrier said its planes now don't enter "the vicinity of the missile trajectory", because it changed the route to avoid the northern part of the Sea of Japan, which sits between the Korean Peninsula and Japan.

Wednesday's missile test reached the highest altitude ever recorded by a North Korean missile and the state-run Korean Central News Agency claims it's capable of reaching the U.S. In response to the test last week, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called on China to do more to rein in North Korea, specifically through restraining the country's oil supply.

The International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) in October condemned the rogue state for its repeated launches, saying they severely undermined the safety of international civilian flying.

Crew of 2 aircraft saw a flash, believed to be North Korea's ballistic missile. Such notices are issued to warn pilots and airlines of potential risks during their flights.
