Malaysian airline again??????

Malaysian airline should forget it. This might be the end of their business.

Malaysian Airlines plane carrying 298 passengers and crew crashes in eastern Ukraine, in apparent missile strike.

Ukrainian Interior Minister said all on board are dead and that the plane was shot down by Russian ground-to-air anti-aircraft missiles at 32,000 feet and at 500mph.

The plane, a Boeing 777, came down near the city of Donetsk, which is a border between Russia and Ukraine where a Ukrainian transport plane was shot down at 21,000 feet on Monday July 13th and a military jet shot down last week from the Russian side of the border.

The Interior Minister said pro-Russian separatists have been hunting down their planes for weeks. 6 Ukrainian military jets have been shot down in the last few months by the Russians. There's been military conflict between Ukraine and Russia for a while. 

The downing of the plane was reportedly "not an accident" and that the passenger jet was apparently ... blown out of the sky. The plane fell in an area controlled by pro-Russian separatists.

However, Ukraine accused "terrorists" and denied any involvement, although around the same time their military commander said his forces had downed a much smaller Ukrainian transport plane. It would be their third such kill this week.

Malaysia Airlines said that 154 Dutch citizens, 27 Australians, 43 Malaysians, 12 Indonesians, nine British, four German, four Belgian, three Filipinos and one Canadian were onboard the aircraft.

The plane departed Amsterdam at 12.30pm and went down around 4.30pm. See photos from the crash below.....
The BUK surface-to-air missile system (like this one) that is believed to have shot down flight MH17 is an old Soviet-built weapon designed to engage light aircraft, cruise missiles and drones.
