While all of us kissed 2017 goodbye only once-at 12am, precisely, as January 1, 2018 hit us-there are a lucky few who got to experience the end of the year twice!

A flight by Hawaiian Airlines did some serious time travelling this week.

According to the US National Institute of Standards and Technology, Hawaii is in a time zone that is 10 hours behind Universal Coordinated Time, more commonly known as Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) after the town in England.

The time difference between the two destinations is almost a day - with Auckland's time being 23 hours ahead of the Hawaiian capital. As a result, Hawaii is almost a day behind New Zealand, at the time of the flight.

Overkill Software's " Payday 2 " is being ported for the Nintendo Switch and it will arrive for the console on February 27. Players looking for more relaxed gameplay can try out the Dragon Quest Builders demo, live on the Nintendo eShop today.

The fascinating concept of time travel remains the biggest obsession of science-fiction enthusiasts. Well, at least it was for the passengers and flight crew aboard that flight! Sweeney took a screenshot of the flight's schedule at 10:05 a.m. on December 31, 2017, and uploaded it to Twitter, where awestruck Twitter users retweeted the post over 29,000 times.

Ha. I did that once flying back from Australia on New Years.

These ppl are going back into last yr without a space flux capacitor.

The flight was scheduled to leave Auckland at 11.55 p.m. but was delayed 10 minutes, meaning it ended up taking off on Jan 1. So, it actually left at 12:05 am on January 1, 2018.
