Time is an illusion, people.
Thanks to an unexpected 10 minute delay, a flight has taken off in 2018 – and will land in 2017.
The Hawaiian Airlines flight HAL446 was supposed to depart Auckland, New Zealand, at 11.55pm local time.
However, it was delayed by 10 minutes, meaning it actually ended up taking off at 12.05am on January 1, 2018.
The plane is flying to Honolulu, which is 23 hours behind Auckland.
Because of this, it will arrive at 10.16am local time – on December 31, 2017.
This fun and unsettling fact was tweeted out by ABC7’s transportation reporter Sam Sweeney, and people’s minds were sufficiently blown.
Millions of people have already rung in the new year in countries including Australia, New Zealand, India, and Dubai.
