The 777 must have been shot down. This area where it happened is a war zone and in the last weeks there were already several cases in which military airplanes were shot down from a similar altitude.

Terrible.

Truly a shame! Such an incompetent company...Our citizens are getting tired with Malaysian Airline honestly.

Report: Malaysia Airlines flight crashes in Ukraine


By Ashley Fantz, CNN

July 17, 2014 -- Updated 1542 GMT (2342 HKT)

(CNN) -- A Malaysia Airlines flight from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur has crashed in eastern Ukraine, Russian news agency Interfax reported Thursday.

Malaysia Airlines confirmed that it lost contact with MH17, and the flight's last known position was over Ukrainian airspace, the airline said on Twitter.

The jet is a Boeing 777, according to Interfax.

The plane reportedly went down near the border between Russia and Ukraine.

Truly incompetent airline to fly onto an area where several planes have been shot down in recent weeks. Why was it even flying over that area anyway, when others like KLM (eg KL 871) fly to the south of Mariupol.

Don't blame your company. It was the Russians who shoot it!

According to a Ukrainian official it was shot down with a Russian missile, this airing on ABC Special Report. My goodness...

That definitely looks like it was shut down. The wreckage clearly looks like it disintegrated in mid-air seeing as you would never find such major wreckage parts if it crashed into the ground in one piece from 35,000ft.

Reportedly a Buk / SA-17. Both Ukraine and Russia have this system. I doubt if separatists would have access to it, it's a large weapons system the size of a semi truck, not like those stingers you launch from your shoulder.

Supposedly the separatists raided an Ukrainian base where they took the Buk, it was seen driving around the area also...

Ukraine would have no reason to do this. They need anyone's help they can get. I would take a guess and say the separatists stole the Buk from either Ukraine or Russia, or Russia themselves did this.

Well it is obvious who did that. They've already admitted.

The crash site of Torez is only 20 kilometers from the Russian border, so within range of Russian SA-17 systems if they are located in that area. The flight direction was towards Russia, although it seems unlikely to mistaken a commercial airliner for an enemy aircraft. But it has happened before.
