I'm saddened by what happened to my colleagues on MH 17. Just flew Romeo Delta last Sunday.

At this moment I'm in shock, speechless and traumatic. I've seen the crew list, and I know all the technical crew personally as well as some of the cabin crew.

May they all rest in peace.

Quoting rfields5421 (Reply 120):
When the plane was just first reported out of contact - rebels in the area announced that they had shot down a transport aircraft. Then once the destruction of the MH aircraft was confirmed, the rebels have removed all reference to shooting down an aircraft today from their web sites.

At least on (western) public social networks erasing messages should only make them invisible to the public – they should still be on record in the databases internally, so a legitimate investigation of a crime such as this one should be able to access even "removed" posts to Twitter et al. If there are indeed such posts claiming responsibility before they realized their mistake, those should be recoverable.

Quoting asetiadi (Reply 132):
A war is about to erupt after this.

You mean in addition to the one already waged in Ukraine? I doubt that.

Putin knows that the entire campaign against Ukraine has just been damaged irrecoverably and that the only thing he can salvage from it is Krimea (at considerable cost) and his own political skin (if that).

I expect Russia to be ultra-cooperative and to let the air out of the insurgency.

Quoting Slider (Reply 137):
Quoting jetblueguy22 (Reply 103):
Fox is reporting Pro Russian separatists have found the black boxes.

Which means it'll never be seen from again.

Theoretically that is possible. But even the most seasoned specialists would have a hard time twisting the recordings to their liking in the very short time they'll have them on their hands, especially with any hope of evading detection. If Russia should refuse to hand them over to Malaysia, it would effectively amount to an admission of guilt, which I doubt Russia to risk.

I rather expect them to apply the hot potato principle to the recorders, handing them over at the earliest possible opportunity.

It would be an unbelievably bad idea for the Ukrainians to try assassinate Putin by shooting his plane down. I don't think Putin's plane was anywhere near MH17 anyway.

It seems like MH17 has normally flown more southern route than it did this time, I think bad weather made the aircraft to choose more northern route, directly over rebel held area...

It is certainly correct to consider the possibility of the other party in the civil war being responsible, but plausibility seems not to be on that side:

• Ukraine shooting down the russian president would accomplish next to nothing, except effectively declaring outright war against Russia (which does not look like such a great idea)

• wasn't the route of Putin's plane pretty far away from eastern Ukraine?

• why then such a shot in the separatist-held area?

• shouldn't the regular ukrainian troops be trained a bit better than just taking a pot shot at any random airliner in the sky?

• apart from the theory about Putin's plane, ukrainian troops would have no incentive to shoot at any aircraft at all, since they're the only ones with military planes in the area anyway

So while I think the thought should not be excluded outright, the ukrainian forces downing the airliner seems the least likely of all scenarios so far.

I expect sensor and other evidence to shed light on the launching spot of the missile soon in any case.

In some way they already do that, here at TLV planes approach now from the north and land on the newly opened rwy 21.
Departures take off from 08 and turn north as soon as airborne, in case of rocket attack on Tel Aviv area, they stop all incoming traffic and every single airplane is put on hold above the sea.

Photos show the tail separate from the rest of the debris. This could mean that the tail separated on impact and fell relatively straight down, while the rest of the plane flew some distance before finally crashing.

And besides what Klaus is saying . . .

Putin's plane, if it is anything like the US Presidential plane, would be much more difficult to shoot down, specially from 30,000ft.

This is because the self protection on the plane would have detected the missile long before impact and performed the necessary maneuver and deployed the necessary counter measures . . . and the Ukrainians would have known this.

The incident you refer to was over 10 years ago. The last time the separatists shot down a plane in eastern Ukraine using missiles supplied by Moscow was a few days ago.

I am quite confident why the plane crashed and if it indeed was shot down who shot it down can be established in a few days time.

Well we do have strong evidence in the form of social media posts made by separatists basically claiming they'd shot the plane down, which they removed shortly after news of the crash.
