Excellent map of the debris field from the WSJ, showing various bits of wreckage we have all become quite familiar with and their locations across the landscape.

Terrific! A matter of fact "tour" of the wreckage.
Well worth the trip to the site to understand more about this matter.

Wow, that map of the massive debris field really brings home what a catastrophic event MH17 must have experienced at altitude.

I really don't think the 5lb warhead of an R-60 or whatever the Ukrainian SU25's carry for A2A ordinance would be capable of doing so much damage.

A proximity fused SA-11 detonating a 150 lb fragmentation warhead at mach 4 however looks much more plausible.

Thanks for sharing this.

Yes, thank-you for finding and sharing this information. I too had no idea that this was so large of a debris field. There's another article describing how children were playing on a playground as bodies fell around them. Thankfully, none of the murdered passengers/crew was alive for the fall, according to investigators. Most died immediately after the rocket exploded immediately next to the plane. The rest within 30 seconds of the explosion.

It makes more sense now. The shrapnel would have created a whole load of perforations and the air rushing out pushed the plane apart into three sections. The resulting the air turbulence would have shredded anything like a peeled orange. With usual 15-20 mile an hour winds and 10 minutes to fall to the ground, the debris would have scattered over 9 miles.
