This is scary.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) called for an immediate full ground stop at airports in the western United States at just about the same time that North Korea decided to launch ballistic missile into the Sea of Japan.
It is currently unclear if these incidents are related however the timing is pretty convienent.
According to Fox, flights at California’s Burbank Airport were stopped for about 15 minutes at around 2:30 p.m. on Monday. No reason was given for the temporary grounding of several flights.
Other airports on the western side of the United States were also grounded for a few minutes as well at around the same time.
NBC found that air traffic control towers in California’s Burbank Airport told a pilot to land after “some sort of national security threat” was detected.
North Korea launched ballistic missile into the eastern sea making it the second time they have launched missiles this week.
North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un has called to expand their nation’s nuclear weapons program against the recommendations of the United States and other allies.
