    Report: Malaysia Airlines flight crashes in Ukraine [/71]

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

    From some of the airline geek places I go to:

    777-300

    Report: Malaysia Airlines flight crashes in Ukraine

    Three months ago conspiracy theories dominated the airwaves. This latest crash by Malaysia Airlines is sure to rejuvenate our imaginations. No word yet on the cause or casualties.

    Both Russia and Ukraine are both claiming it was shot down and both are blaming each other.

    It is a normal flight route, lots of planes over that area every day.

    Well several Ukrainian planes have been brought down this week by missiles fired near the Russian border so if we are going to point fingers I have an idea where we can start.

    Tons of flights from Europe to S. Asia fly over that area, Singapore, Vietnam, Malaysia, Eva, JAL, Lufthansa, Air France, etc.

    But this plane was at 33,000 feet. Can't come down from a shoulder fired missile, too high.

    Russia did shoot down a Ukranian plane a few days ago...

    Re: Report: Malaysia Airlines flight crashes in Ukraine

    Anton Gerashenko, an adviser to Ukraine's Interior Minister, said on his Facebook page the plane was flying at an altitude of 10,000 meters (33,000 feet) when it was hit by a missile fired from a Buk launcher. A similar launcher was seen by Associated Press journalists near the eastern Ukrainian town of Snizhne earlier Thursday

    This could be huge especially if the people on board are Americans and Europeans...

    If this is indeed Ukrainian sepratists that shot this passenger plane down...The world are gonna call on putin to end this movement.
    If Russia gave the UkS these heavy weapons...Putin is screwed.

    Putin claimed that Obama's sanctions were not only hurting Russia but the US companies as well...meaning it is hurting Russia.
