Regarding the Buk missile launcher, one analyst pointed out that an experienced operator would be able to tell that he was targeting a civilian craft.

My suspicion backed by the reported boasts from the separatists is that someone thought he'd struck lucky hitting a large transport plane.
And most of them will have been families going on summer holiday
