I can't believe it. First of all, what a terrible coincidence the crashed aircraft was flown by Malaysia Airlines! That might be the very end for that airline. And not only that - the 777 never ever had a major crash up until this year and now twice within a few months. Hope it won't suffer a bad image because it really is one of the most modern and safest airplanes out there.

Not to mention the international relations to Russia are going to get tense now...to say the least. Let's see how this will turn out, I don't fear a war, but an event like this certainly was the last thing we needed in this already ongoing conflict.

I'm curious, will NTSB or some Boeing officials be sent to the crash site?

My most sincere condolences to the victims in the Malaysia Airlines 17 crash. But, i hope the perpetrators to this horrendous crime will be brought to justice. This could really bring a huge blow to the airline, especially that it represents the Malaysian people deeply, and it is very unfortunate that both B777 losses have been incurred by the same airline.

And again a sad day for the entire nation.

#PrayerForMH17 #MalaysiaAirlines


At around 10.15PM Malaysian Time, a Malaysia Airlines plane #MH17 which was flying out of Amsterdam enroute to Kuala Lumpur International Airport disappeared from radar screens (FlightRadar24).

At this hour, it has been confirmed that the said plane, which is a Boeing 777 registration no. 9M-MRD, had indeed lost contact and crashed in the Grabovo settlement in the Donetsk Region in Eastern Ukraine, just about 50km from the Tamak Waypoint in the town of Shaktarsk - Russia and Ukraine border.

Social media from Ukraine @MatevzNovak has posted some pictures of wreckage.

As of now, Malaysia Airlines has issued an official statement on the missing #MH17.

295 passengers were onboard, including 15 crew members.

According to CNN, the plane was flying at 10,000 metres altitude.

The plane is believed to have been shot down by a ground-to-air missile, says a Ukranian official.

The flight path is a common one used by commercial jets. Flying zone is still opened as both Ukraine and Russia are not in official civil war.

Malaysian Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak has tweeted that he is "shocked."

Newly appointed Malaysian Minister of Transport Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai is on his way back from Beijing, as he tweeted. Datuk Seri Hishamuddin Hussein, the former Acting Mister of Transport and Minister of Defence has ordered the military to confirm the details to address the public.

Malaysia Airlines will hold an official press conference at 4AM. (this early morning)

US President Barack Obama has been informed and closely monitoring this developing event. President Obama has also just spoken to his counterpart Russian President Vladimir Putin. We all know that US is still imposing sanctions on Russia over recent events in Ukraine.

Just a few days ago, a Ukrainian Su-25 war plane operating over Eastern Ukraine was downed by a rocket fired by a Russian fighter, as claimed by the Ukraine's national security council yesterday. The pilot ejected and rescued safely. Pro-Russia rebels in Donetsk have claimed responsibility for having shot down planes in the past as well.

Ugggh... looks like this could trigger a deeper conflict between Russia, Ukraine, et al. because this incident should never have happened.

You should not believe everything that will tell. My father Colonel antiaircraft forces. He said that the militia could not shoot down the plane. Ukrainian military could only destroy. This is a gross provocation

Please do not post pics of the victims bodies.

I am pretty outraged that accusations are being hurled on the responsible parties between opposing geopolitical powersmin Europe on the news channels using their so called analysts, the same quacks with their conpsiracies in MH370 incident, it seems the tragic loss of the passengers of MH17 are never important to the NATO,Ukraine and Russian politicians , all they want some political gain from this incident!!!

I hope the malaysian government make sure that answers to the cause of the flight loss take centrestage rather than the petty geopolitical squabbles.

The world must allow ICAO to lead the investigation an not allow poltiical aligned analyst clowns dispense justice.

The fact the separatist are not allowing any rescue crews or investigators into the crash site explains everything.

Lifenews.ru livefeed has a lot of footage. Some of it is pretty NSFW though, so you have been warned!
