    The situation is certainly worrying this weekend.

    This is trending on Twitter – showing no flights over North Korea,128.69/6

    But I wondered whether that was normally the case anyway?


    This time last week (Friday and Saturday), I was approx 10 miles from the border between North and South. Staying in Incheon and Seoul but travelled Northbound to see customers.

    This time last week, I wasn’t concerned.

    This week, I would not want to be there.


    A possible reason might be that China has turned up the pressure on Mike Myers Land by temporarily suspending flights between the 2 countries. Presumably in an attempt to force the Pyongyang mob to cease further provocative actions.

    Like most everybody else this Easter I hope common sense prevails. Sadly,for that to happen,the provocateurs on all sides need to have the ability to do so.


    Not worrying at all and quite normal during major holidays – it’s the anniversary of the founding of North Korea this weekend with major military parades and fly-pasts.
