Gee... wonder what could have happened. Someone needs to teach Ivan how to work on his visual identification before handing him any missiles.

Right over “rebel” territory. Appears the Ukrainians have been shooting down their own planes all day in order to pull this false flag op / sarc.

NO, it’s a different airplane. The Russians have been shooting down Ukrainian airplanes. Looks like they picked the wrong target and got an airliner.

FoxNews reports that this is listed by Malaysian Airlines as an ‘incident’. Unknown whether mechanical failure or missile.

The BBC’s Daniel Sandford in Moscow says that the area in which the plane is reported to have come down is right in the centre of the area controlled by anti-Kiev rebels - although of course details are still coming in.

“Earlier a Ukrainian security spokesman has accused Russia’s air force of shooting down one of its fighter jets while it was on a mission over Ukrainian territory.

A spokesman for Malaysian Airlines has confirmed “an incident” on board one of its flights and is expected to release a statement shortly.”

It would take a pretty good missile to shoot down a 777 at 35,000 ft traveling 500 knts.

Flightaware data shows it was at 33,000, normal cruise/speed, then nothing showing decent.

The Russian national terrorists have admitted shooting it down. They thought it was a Ukrainian plane.
