South Korea Will Divert Flights for Rocket Launch

According to officials, South Korea is planning to divert the route of a number of flights to clear the airspace for the North Korea Rocket Launch.  North Korea has announced their plans to launch a satellite sometime between April 12 and 16, a move that is viewed by the US and its allies as a precursor to missile testing.  However, North Korea has gone through the proper channels and has notified international aviation and maritime agencies of the intended flight path

North Korea sent a letter to the London-based International Maritime Organization, detailing the launch.  It will be done between 7:00 am and 12:00 pm local time and the coordinates for the two stages of rocket fall-off were given.  The first is due to fall approximately 140 km off the west coast of South Korea and the second stage is expected to fall 190 km east of the northern part of the Philippines.  The government will ask all cargo vessels to keep out of the way of the falling debris.
