All I hear is people talking about whether the plane was shot down on purpose. Has anyone given any thought to what could be done with 2 777s? I hope that plenty of wreckage is found of the 777 that just went down in Russia. If there is not, I would have a big problem with one airline having 2 jets "disappear" especially 2 of the most state of the art long range jets in the world. Passenger jets are allowed to fly right in to our biggest cities(NY LA) with no checks and it wouldn't be difficult to "replace" a 777 full of passengers with another full of weapons. I hope that the transponders in the planes are using state of the art encryption so that it would be impossible to fake a signal. Does anyone else think like this. Tom Clancy style nuclear attack???
Donetsk militia takes control of Ukrainian anti-air installation
The self-defense forces of Donetsk People’s Republic seized control of a Ukrainian anti-air military installation, RIA Novosti reports.
"The forces of Donetsk People’s Republic assumed control of A-1402 military base," the militia's representative said. According to him, it is an anti-aircraft missile forces facility equipped with Buk mobile surface-to-air missile systems.
During the last several days the militia took control of two internal security troops' installations in eastern Ukraine.

I'll believe it when there's a little physical evidence. Both sides have way too much to gain by saying it was shot down by the other.
