Report: Jet Missed Landing Zone of North Korean Missile by 10 Minutes

(ABC News)

A commercial plane passed the area in the Sea of Japan where an intercontinental ballistic missile launched by North Korea landed 10 minutes later, ABC News reports. 

Air France flight 293, flying west from Tokyo to Paris with 323 people, "was potentially in danger," according to ABC.

The plane moved west of Hokkaido while the ICBM was in the air, eventually landing roughly 93 miles northwest of Okushiri Island, although Air France told the network that North Korea's testing areas "don't interfere in any way with Air France's flight paths," and that the plane traveled "without any reported incident."

Air France added, in a statement, that "in cooperation with the authorities, Air France constantly analyzes potentially dangerous flyover zones and adapts its flight plans accordingly."

However, a Pentagon spokesman told ABC News that North Korea's missile testing could pose a threat to commercial aircraft.

"This missile flew through busy airspace used by commercial airliners," Capt. Jeff Davis said after the country's missile test on July 4. "It flew into space. It landed in Japan's exclusive economic zone, and an area that's used by commercial and fishing vessels. All of this completely uncoordinated."

Although the United States usually sends out a press release prior to a missile test, North Korea issues no such statement about their tests.
