How does stuff like this even happen? This time, you can thank flight delays and the International Dateline.
Passengers were on board a flight that left Auckland, New Zealand, at 12:05 a.m. local time. That meant the flight left in 2018, The Daily Mail reported.
But it landed in Honolulu at 10:16 a.m. on Dec. 31, 2017.
Technically, Auckland is 23 hours ahead of Honolulu.
Twitter had a field day with the pseudo time-traveling flight.
And while some were having fun with the so-called time-traveling flight, others used logic to explain that it’s actually not that odd of an occurrence.
