Illuminated jets seen above Pyongyang in late-night flyover

State media has hinted at possible 'celebrations' this week, though a large-scale military parade unlikely

A range of aircraft cruised at low altitude over the North Korean capital Thursday night, NK News has confirmed, a possible celebration event related to North Korea's September 9 National Day anniversary.

Multiple jets with flares appeared flying over central Pyongyang in the direction of Mansudae Assembly Hall, while music could also be heard from downtown shortly after, according to an informed source in the capital.
