Video of MH17 Hit by Missile

Reader David sent an email and accompanying video that purportedly shows the Malaysian Flight 17 being hit by missile. Let's take a look.

It appears as if the right engine and wing area took the hit. The camera operator is able to record the moment of impact in the first 2 seconds of this clip. Note the smoke burst left behind on impact with the #2 engine area. There is a 18 second delay (speed of sound delay) due to the distance and altitude of the explosion. Question: How did this video operator know to have his camera running just prior to the missile explosion? How many people run their camera in the sky looking for an airplane cruising at altitude so high that most are not visible to the human eye? Note that the pilots are maintaining wings level, the airplane and burning wing still intact, in what appears to be an uncontrolled descent from 33,000 feet when the video ends at 1 minute 19 seconds.

I would have thought that the explosion would have done more that just ignite an engine/wing.

This has been debunked previously, it is NOT MH17.

The plane exploded when it hit the ground, not when it was hit by the missile

The missile is designed to explode 65ft from target. There was an explosion in the sky as well.

The plane exploded when it hit the ground, not when it was hit by the missile

Then why is there a miles long debris field? And bodies dropping from the sky?

OK, I guess it broke up in the air, but part of it exploded upon ground contact? The reports are confusing at best.

That may be a video of the Ukrainian transport the rebels claim to have shot down a while ago.

“Um, the video was uploaded June 6”

Do you mind not clouding the issue with facts? It’s so annoying.

Could be the ‘other’ Malaysia plane being used as target practice?

I am going by with what was shown on FNC when they showed the video of the explosion on the ground.

I just went to Drudge and the previous links and found this, which I had not seen before

Bodies rained down on Ukraine village after plane disaster

The aircraft in this video is NOT a Boeing 777. Therefore it is not a video of MH17.

i.e. fraud or mistake.

Why do you all keep posting the same video over and over when it is not of MH17. Townhall as usual got duped.

The plane was hit by the missile and broken apart by the missile explosion; leaving some large pieces to fall ... and those that included some of the fuel, exploded on impact.

The debris field is quite large, covering up to 9 kilometers in total diam. (said some estimates).

Then why is that debris was strewn over an area of 9 square miles? Isn’t that a rather large area?

The video was a shootdown of a Ukrainian AN-30 on June 6th. It was not MH-17. The AN-30 was falling intact. The MH-17 reports include bodies falling from the sky i.e. not intact.

The video header says AH-30 at the end of the Cyrillic text. If you search Google for AH-30, you will find exactly the same video posted June 6th with English labeling.

The June 6th Youtube link is here. A link to two other videos of the June 6th shootdown are here
