    I also saw that a Ukrainian su-25 was shot down just a couple of hours prior, just miles from this incident. Wonder if it was retaliation for that and they thought it was a military jet?

    Ukrainian Interior Ministry adviser: Malaysian plane was brought down by a ground-to-air missile & all 295 people on board are dead

    Well ****. If this is true then I can see some not so good things happening quite soon.

    It's unlikely that rebels operate such a sophisticated SAM.

    The Ukrainian claim that it is a BUK missile. How do they know unless it's one of theirs?

    The 777 flying from E to W apparently went down 50 or 60 km W of the Russian border.

    I suspect it might be another tragic mistake by the Ukrainians?

    There was also on Monday a Ukrainian military cargo plane shot down by Ukrainian Rebels. Same area.

    Thanks. Having checked out a BUK on wiki, their range is insufficient to have come from russia or the border where the rebels ''operate''. On top of that, with the Ukrainian fighter jet that has been shot down it could well have been a retaliation that turned into a tragic mistake.

    :(

    Just saw on twitter in what seems the door of the plane. The colours confirm it's a MAS plane..

    Apparently debris is spread over a 9 mile stretch, that would confirm breaking up in the air correct?

    Reuters is reporting 23 americans were on board

    First footage of smoke plume also shows the glitter of smaller debris filling the sky and an odd sight of 4 long streamers of something drifting down. Obviously a violent breakup in flight.

    Just a warning, there *were* some very graphic photos on this twitter feed of dismembered passengers that he has since taken down, including a dead child still strapped into their seat... not sure if more will show up. The feed owner apparently was at the crash site.

    The weapon used was sophisticated enough that it had to come from a government, be it Russia or Ukraine.

    Did they supply it to the rebels?
    Was it stolen? If so, not just anyone can turn it on and learn how to use it on the fly.
