"The Russian network TV Zvezda, the news network for the Russian military, did report that a Buk fell to separatist hands on June 29th."

So now apparently the "Russian BUK System" that everyone is saying might have shot down the plane IS in fact in "Rebel Hands" because it "FELL" to them?
Anyone gonna believe the "Rebels" took a Russian BUK System from the Russian military?

Come on people this was not MH370.
Of course planes from the same airline will look the same.
People did actually board MH17 so why use MH370?
If they did indeed capture it and want to use it, they would probably only use it to fake evidence of an attack from either side.

Unless someone has actual evidence of a missile being fired, it's way too early to say shootdown. Yes, it's entirely possible, given the area, but accidents do happen. And with Malaysia having recently lost another aircraft, it's entirely possible that this was just a horrible accident at the wrong place.
Malaysian Airlines MH17 plane was travelling almost the same route as Russia’s President Vladimir Putin’s jet shortly before the crash that killed 295, Interfax news agency reports citing sources.
I can say that Putin’s plane and the Malaysian Boeing intersected at the same point and the same echelon. That was close to Warsaw on 330-m echelon at the height of 10,100 meters. The presidential jet was there at 16:21 Moscow time and the Malaysian aircraft - 15:44 Moscow time,” a source told the news agency on condition of anonymity.
