    Report: Malaysia Airlines flight crashes in Ukraine

    Thanks for all the pictures beefyheart. Amazing they're rolling out so quickly. That body picture is disturbing.

    I suppose everyone is right that this could have been an accident. But considering the recent fighter jet tango, and that AP news sited anti-air missile launchers recently at the UK-RU border, I'm betting this is the Ruskis. But time will tell.

    The Russian Separatists in that region have shot down two Ukrainian planes in the last few weeks, so your theory is highly questionable.

    Yes, this is my fault. I missed that bit of news. I was only aware of the UK and RU fighter jets clashing.

    Apparently the seperatists claimed to have shot down a military plane prior to the crash:

    I agree, but I'm not running any of the airlines that fly that route.

    The Dutch travel agency D-Reizen just announced that at least 25-30 Dutch citizens were on board.

    This smells accidental, but from an invading surface-to-air missile tank of the Russians. That makes it semi-accidental because the damn thing shouldn't be there in the first place.
