Pilots navigating the Far East this December have a new UFO to watch.  Although it’s not exactly unidentified, and not a cheery holiday jaunt by Santa’s reindeer, either. North Korea is planning a new missile launch (Washington Times), an event which has certainly caught the attention of the Pacific Rim. The U.S. Navy will dispatch two warships to track developments, while Japan will attempt to shoot the missile down should it breach its airspace. The shoot is intended to celebrate the life of Kim Jong-Il, the recently deceased dictator of the rogue state.

While global diplomatic and military establishments deal with this latest provocation, pilots need to tend to their latest NOTAM- Notice to Airmen, which in this case means practice situation awareness and be ready to avoid the damn thing if necessary, as described in this video by TheJapanChannelDcom.
