The military, via their spy satellites, should be aware of the missile launch positions on both sides of the conflict. I suppose they could notify the civilian aviation authorities to close air routes and divert planes elsewhere.

Well, a lot of the airliners had already diverted their planes from the area. The report of the Dutch authorities will probably also note that Malaysia Airlines didn't do this, despite other big airliners having done that, leaked bits of the report say. So they should have known without warnings from intelligence services.

After all, the MH17 was just one of 20-25 airplanes and helicopters shot down by the separatists in the area. Unfortunately it turned out to be a passenger plane.

I think the better question is why air traffic control in the area did not move aircraft away from the war-zone.

because air traffic control in the area wasnt aware of potencial rebelians activities in the zone, before take-off crew have a flight plan which many airlines already avoided that zone for precaution, but MH17 took a risk

On July 16th separatists downed governmental AF Su-25 just some 20 miles from the place where MH17 would crash the next day.

I do agree indeed that the air space should have been closed down totally. Airlines that continued to fly in that area are also partially to blame. Of course, the biggest blame remains at those who pushed the button.

A month before the separatists shot down the MH17, they shot down a Il-76, killing 49 on board. If such big planes can hit, then it's quite normal to close the air space for civil flights.

It was found, washed ashore in La Réunion in the Western part of the Indian Ocean.

With the common currents it matches the theory that it crashed somewhere in the Indian Ocean.

But the official statement from La Réunion still mentions 3 different possible crashes as the origin of the part that was found.



But on the internet the first evidence is already appearing that it's indeed a 777 flaperon part. You can see the comparison in this picture from twitter:

Of course the piece will be examined by experts to identify it's origins. Before that we don't know for sure, but it does look like that this is the first part of the crashed 777. It will also be proof that confirms that they are looking at the right location. But as the Indian Ocean is so huge and deep it will still be a lucky shot if they will find larger debris somewhere on the ocean floor.

Appearently, months ago some citizens of the Maldives had sight on what might be the MH370, but nobody listened.

April 5.
http://www.vistaalmar.es/recursos/ac...-airlines.html

It's in Spanish, but basically it says that some fishermen in Kudahuvadhoo saw a big airplane with the blue-red color stripes flying really low and close to them, they warned the police but appearently no one listened.
