Am I understanding this correctly?

I've read on this thread that it appeared the plane that was shot down had 2 planes as a "military escort".

Then I see that Putin's plane was just 30 minutes behind this plane that was shot down.

If both of these statements are true (and I'll need to find sources other than this thread to verify...) than it sounds like the 777 was shot down as an assassination attempt on Putin... but Putin (or whomever made the call in terms of escort planes) intentionally made it appear that the Malaysian 777 was Putin's plane by placing the two "escort" planes right behind it.

Do I understand this right? (Probably not.)

Yikes.

My head hurts. This story is just all kinds of awful.

What if....just entertain this thought for a second. There were reports of two military jets flying with it at somepoint from someone in the Air Traffic Control or something wasn't there? Or was that bogus?

If there were....what if they were flying with the plane to give the illusion that it really was a military transport plane and then maybe once they fired the missile from the ground....they hit their afterburners and left them to their fate. Just another angle I just thought about. Kind of like they purposely drew fire onto the aircraft.

I have to disagree with you in saying this thread has been biased toward Russia. It has been an open thread offering ideas and opinions in a situation where very little is coming from the Govt. Therefore its the media and not the thread you should aim your criticism toward. Also have you read the previous 42 pages? It would be a shame if a new visitor came to the site and jumped to the end of the posts to learn that it is all Russian propaganda.

Ukraine does have ground equipment for it, here is the proof - if you are sensitive, avoid to watch the videos, they show it all.

but the links I gave you previously, is newer that the one on this message, but its a proof, that Kiev does have guns for it and knew about it since yesterday and they send special equipment and forces for that purpose!.

Also as you said, the new russia army, NO WAY to do such a thing! to shut down their president at 10.000 feet

PLease forgive me for duping a question that may have been asked already as Im late to this...

But if this plane was shot down, why don't we see a smoke trail leading down to the point of explosion that is being shown across all the media to be that of MH 17?

Actually, RT is a pretty good news source.

It's true that they are focusing on the Ukraine being at fault, but it doesn't mean it's pro-Putin propaganda.


Um…

Russia Today is a Putin-directed propaganda machine, started and run by two Putin cronies; Mikhail Lesin and Aleksei Gromov. I though all ATS members were aware of that?


So which shady government official runs ATS?

Pretty interesting how the owner of ATS finds it necessary to jump in and criticize RT. Kinda explains a lot of the staff bias lately.


Well I assume he is the guy who came up with ATS's motto "Deny Ignorance" which is what he did? Do you contend the facts of his statement?

RT reporters who recently resigned publicly explained that the Russian government dictated to them what stories to cover, how to cover them, what they could and could not say and what stories not to cover.

You can google up that piece of news or I can?

This isn't a debate about opinion...SO stated known facts.

Well then the media lied again as I saw two different reports that said the RS were the only group that could possibly have these weapons. So everyone is pushing some type of agenda.

What are the odds an airliner would cross over a warring country when all other airlines have had their flight paths already changed?
a reply to: FlySolo

Other flights had beenl crossing also. it wasn't just MAS.

So yes, you're right about about 1/20,000 happens anywhere in the world


I didn't say 1/20,000. i said using 20,000 flights as the set was wrong.

Only the flights that pass the area in a time window near the event count.

Fair enough. Still, mathematically speaking I think the odds are slim that any planes get shot down. It doesn't happen that often.

ETA: If other airlines never changed their flight paths, then how many planes have flown over Ukraine since the uprising? Lots. Then to have Malaysia get shot out of the sky after their previous disaster? C'mon, the odds of that must be astronomical.

Tragic and insane that this happened to ANOTHER MA flight. The (alleged) demise of two of their planes within a year. Both Boeing 777 aircraft. Nuts.

I mean, does Malaysian Airlines have the worst luck of all time, or?

very tragic event, my heart goes out to the families of all those lost.



Strange fact on the plane - The Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777 known as MH17 had its maiden flight on 17/07/97 and was shot down 17/07/14, exactly 17 years later.

At 15:44 the Boeing 777 pass from the ukraine and ukraine airfighters shoot it down. Putins presidential aircraft pass from the same spot at 16:21 - 30 minutes later!!! Putin aircraft have totally the same looks, colors and size, as the Boeing 777.

That is a clearly assassination attempt by Kiev and its allies.

here is the news... You can translate them.

link

the link bellow is a testimony of a Spanish airport (flight coordinator), that Kiev airfigters attacked the Boeing 777
link


Even RT is questioning that claim...


At the same time, there have been reports contradicting Intefax’s report that was the first and the only media source to publish the news, saying that Presidential plane was not flying over Ukraine at the same time.

As a source told Gazeta.ru online news portal, Putin’s plane does take off from Vnukovo-3 [the terminal that accepts business jets], but the president does not fly over the conflict-gripped neighboring country.

“Putin has only one jet – Board One, he does not fly other planes. This plane always takes off from Vnukovo-3, but the presidential plane have not been flying over Ukraine for a while,” the source at Vnukovo-3 terminal said.

President Putin was on his way from Brazil, where he attended the BRICS summit, to Moscow.

Flight MH17 crashed in Ukraine on a flight from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, and was carrying 295 people.

The passenger Boeing-777 was expected to enter Russian airspace at 5:20pm local time, but never did, a Russian aviation industry source was cited by Reuters.


Reports that Putin flew similar route as MH17, presidential airport says 'hasn't overflown Ukraine for long time'

Just goes to show you the attitude of some of these companies. All about the bottom line. Flying over a literal war zone and thinking it's okay. I understand that this doesn't happen often and planes have been flying overhead but still....no respect for the safety of the passengers and no respect for the people being butchered below them. The company is just as much to blame as whoever may have shot it down in my opinion. It takes a special kind of arrogance to tempt fate like that. Honestly...if flights have been just cruising overhead like there's not a war being fought below this whole time.....I'm surprised it hasn't happened till now. That being said I feel sory for all parties involved. This is only about to escalate though....we all know it.

Is it even humanly possible to plan that? I mean, it's pretty complicated to pick a flight that has those statistics.

Here is something kind of odd about the passports that I didnt notice when they first showed them on the news. I guess this part was edited out. Not sure what to make of this, but pay close attention right after the opening crap, starting at the :9 second mark.



eta: I guess I should add that it is possible the guy was out in his truck and found all these out in the field and just put them in a bag and brought them back....
