I’m low on information, but if this is the same type of Malaysian plane that disappeared, could it be that whoever shot it down, considered it to be the disappeared one filled with bombs?

The flight had already crossed 99% of the Ukraine at a steady altitude of 33,000 feet and was about to cross the Russian border. Who would have had the most motivation to shoot it down?

Burning wreckage, bodies scattered after airliner crashes in Ukraine

http://news.yahoo.com/burning-wreckage-dozens-bodies-scene-plane-crash-ukraine-162910650.html

An emergency services rescue worker said at least 100 bodies had so far been found at the scene, near the village of Grabovo, and that debris from the wreckage was spread across an area up to about 15 km (nine miles) in diameter.

Broken pieces of the wings were marked with blue and red paint - the same colours as the emblem of the Malaysian airline which lost track of a Boeing 777 en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur that was carrying almost 300 people.

“I was working in the field on my tractor when I heard the sound of a plane and then a bang and shots. Then I saw the plane hit the ground and break in two. There was thick black smoke,” said a witness, who gave his name only as Vladimir.

geez, they lose track of the flight just after it enters Ukrainian air space and the crash site is on the other side of the country.

Girkin aka "Strelkov" claims to have shot down Ukraine Air Force cargo jet at same time and location! Check the page before it is removed.................................................................................................. https://vk.com/strelkov_info 17.07.2014 17:50 (мск) Сообщение от ополчения. "В районе Тореза только что сбили самолет Ан-26, валяется где-то за шахтой "Прогресс". Предупреждали же - не летать в "нашем небе". А вот и видео-подтверждение очередного "птичкопада". Птичка упала за террикон, жилой сектор не зацепила. Мирные люди не пострадали. А также еще есть информация о втором сбитом самолете, вроде бы Су." Facts speak by themselves................................................................. They removed the link after they realized just they stepped on putlers balls.

That observation pretty much settles it.

No..this is a different plane, and the Seperatists mistook the plane for a Unkraine plane and claimed responsibility...they are considered terrorists. There were 23 Americans, and 80 were children of the 280 passengers and there were 15 employees. The plane was only crossing their airspace as it normally does from Amsterdam to Malyasia.

Thank you. I meant the same type, Boeing 777, not the actual missing plane.

Seems to be a lot of conflicting information out there and we’ll never know an accurate answer.

Prayers for the loved ones of the victims.

Hoping the terrorists are dealt with properly (like Israel deals with them)

If indeed the Russian separatists are on the site sweeping for evidence, you can bet that evidence tying them to the missile will go the way of Lois Lerner’s hard drive. Lois...pick up the white phone,...you’re needed in Donetsk

Yes it was a Boeing 777; prayers up. I agree on the terrorists being taken care of properly.

The Russians are looking for a Casus Belli for a full-scale invasion of Ukraine. No doubt they are going to try to create a “Reichstag Fire” to set it justification for such an invasion.

Why was it flying over a war zone? One would think that Malaysia would be a bit more careful about their airplanes. That is the second big hit to Malaysian Airlines in a year.

Many airlines had flights over this area, even at the exact time of the shoot-down.

Ukraine Separatist Leader Boasts Of Downing Plane

In a post on his VKontakte page, Russia's largest social media site, separatist leader Igor Girkin, aka Strelkov, wrote: "In the vicinity of Torez, we just downed a plane, an AN-26. It is lying somewhere in the Progress Mine. We have issued warnings not to fly in our airspace. We have video confirming. The bird fell on a waste heap. Residential areas were not hit. Civilians were not injured."

Reply 11:

Looks like top rebel Igor Girkin (Streklov) posted on social media about shooting down "another AH-26" today, along with video footage of the takedown.

Now that the black boxes have been sent to Moscow for analysis we're sure to get confirmation of this claim soon.

No —

These are dumb ass thugs masquerading as soldiers who brought down an airliner travelling an international flight path recognized as such even by Russia — the client state of these thugs.
