As soon as the aircraft pushed back from the gate, the aircraft became sovereign territory of the ROK. as a result, even though the tires were on the tarmac of the United States of America, within the aircraft. the jurisdiction was that of Korea.

It is a classic case of XXXgate :)

I could be wrong but I thought when it became airborne. Until then, it was still on U.S. Soil
