Well… let the speculation begin…

Here we go again.

At least this time it is over land.

Ukraine airspace? hmmmm I wonder.

At least the search area is pretty well defined.
May be some difficulties with recovery tho’

Can anybody explain to me please, how was the last point in the MH17 flight tracker obtained? There seem to be no coverage in this region, and until 17 of July, all route points there were estimated.
Was it added manually, after the fact?

And the media feeding frenzy, I’m glad someone (Sgt. Boyd of the US Embassy in Ukraine) got a prank call in live on MSNBC . Just google Howard Stern MSNBC recent.

What’s to speculate? Terrorists shot it down, end of story.

I’ve read information that states there was a no-fly zone over Ukraine since July 8 imposed by the Ukrainian government. However looking at the flight history/activity log of Malaysia Airlines 17, it clearly shows the flight path directly over Ukraine every day this month (on 7/12 it took a different path but still flew over Ukraine).

Why wasn’t this news widespread? Why would Malaysia continue flying unsafely over Ukrainian airspace after that announcement?

How many more disasters can that airline bear?

Apparently it was no fly up to 32,000 feet. This airliner was at 33,000.

And you had six hours of news to view to come to that conclusion…

confused ?? I taught there were no Americans on board ??

Why did it deviate the route which both KLM and MA where flying all week. ??


qwik question and off topic :

:question: :question: :question:

can the admin on this site filter spam ??

I received this in my pm :

Dear. Friend

I am Barrister Jude Okoh the personal Attorney to your Late uncle Mr. Moses, a national of your country who died on along with his wife and only daughter here in Togo. Since my client death, I have tried all my possible best to get in touch with any of his family
members but all my effort was in vein.

I am contacting you because you are bearing the same family last name with my client and this is going to make this lucrative transaction work very successfully.

Do you disagree with that assessment?

I had heard in coverage of this last night route deviations from previous flights had to do with thunderstorms. Whether any appear in these graphics I can’t tell.

A prevailing theory at the moment is that whoever shot down the plane thought it was a military cargo plane, not a commercial airliner.

Today’s Malaysia Airlines flight with the same flight number flew away from Ukraine.




Where can we check the weather of that day ?

Here’s a link for the weather over Kiev, Ukraine for the month of July, you can check other stats there as well.


Gotta say Kiev weather most likely (and weather in general) will have little affect on the cause or outcome.
