How many of us have fantasized about time travel? The answer is probably all of us. Something about the prospect of going back into the past is exciting. This fascination could be because of its adaptations on the television or just because our mind has trouble wrapping itself around the unknown. These six flights from the future did experience time travel.

The Hawaiian Airlines flight HA 446 was scheduled to take off from Auckland, New Zealand to Honolulu, Hawaii at 11:55 pm on December 31st. There was a delay of ten minutes which led to the flight taking off five minutes after the new year had started. The plane landed at its final destination at 9:45 pm on the same date, which meant it made its way from 2018 to 2017 where New Years was several hours away.

This was picked up by Washington, D.C.-based television journalist Sam Sweeney, who took to Twitter to make this announcement to the world.

This was only of the six flights from the future that landed in 2017. FlightRadar24, recognized as the most popular flight tracker in the world, also shared information on similar time-travel feats achieved by 6 Taipei flights bound for Canada and the United States.
