Further speculation that air traffic was grounded because of the North Korean missile launch

The Drive:

this whole ordeal gave us a unique glimpse into what would happen if the U.S. came under attack by some sort of long-range ballistic missile capability. It seems that the first indicator we may get that such an event was occurring is that the FAA orders a ground stop to aircraft located over a broad area and moves to clear critical airspace so that interceptors can be safely employed.
