It seems that 2018 added some truth to the theory of time travel, after all.
Double celebrations took place when tourists took off on a flight in 2018 and landed in 2017, the year we just bid adieu to. What would you give to travel back in time at the turn of this year?
As it happened, a flight leaving Auckland in New Zealand for Honolulu in Hawaii took off in 2018 but landed last year. Thanks to an unexpected delay!
Twitter user Sam Sweeney spotted this one-of-a-kind incident of time travel and apprised everyone of it.

The Hawaiian Airlines flight HAL446 took off from Auckland Airport at 12:05 am on January 1st, 2018, and landed in Honolulu at 10:16 am on December 31, 2017, local time. Since Auckland is 23 hours ahead of Honolulu, the lucky travellers got to welcome the new year twice!
Now that time travel is settled, let’s make flying cars happen, shall we?
