Terrorists reported they hit transport aircraft. Exactly at that place, exactly that time. Wasn't transport apparently...

Who let the aircraft fly in that area?

EDIT It's confirmed with photos.:(

Airplanes are flying over conflict zones all the time. It should not normally be a problem. Missiles reaching those altitudes should only be in the hands of armies that should have the technology to avoid commercial aircraft.

so it is basically certain that the plane was shot down, the rebels have a track record of doing this but surely not to planes at 33,000 feet? Do they have the tech to carry out this sort of attack, BBC reporters in the region are suggesting they do http://www.bbc.com/news/world-28354787

but then again could it have been the Ukraine government? seems very unlikely, maybe a mistake on their part?

As for planes flying over war zones this is pretty routine, I have flown over the Middle East a few times during troubles etc, international air corridors are widely respected, after all why would you shoot down a random passenger jet? its asking for trouble internationally.

Poor Malaysian airlines, the first one was a mistake, it happens, but now this? They may go out of business with bad press.

Hope this does not explode World War 3

Too bad but this is just bad luck in war. But why fly over a war zone anyway? Apparently it was shot down in cruise speed. Look out for Israel/USA/EU to talk this up to bully Russia and to turn away attention from an unmistakable Gaza massacre.

Fuck, I'm scheduled to flight over that same zone, though using a different route... Freaked out right now. Airlines are reporting that they're avoiding Ukrainian airspace, that's good news at least... :sad:

Horrible news, shouldn't be possible.

Yet more innocent people killed by Russians. Russia needs sanctioning back to the stone age.

Plane crashed inside Ukraine.. Stop trying to use every accident to fit your agenda..

Rest In Peace those who died in this tragedy..
