Mh17 left Schiphol Airport at Amsterdam on route to Kuala Lumpur.
It was flying at an altitude of 33000 feet (slightly above 10km) over Ukraine when it was hit by a missile.
There were 298 souls on board, 196 Dutch, 42 Malaysians, 27 Australians, 11 Indonesians, 10 Brits, 4 Belgians, 3 Germans, 3 Philippines, 1 Canadian and 1 New Zealander.

The aircraft (a boeing 777-200 from Malaysia Airlines) was likely hit at the front left of the cockpit.
Igor Strelkov posted a message and a tweet about shooting down another AN-26, when it turned out that this was a civilian aircraft the messages were removed and their involvement denied.


AN-26 airplane was shot down near Torez, it fell somewhere behind the mine "Progress".
We warned - do not fly in "our sky".
And here is the video proof of another "bird-fall" (bird = slang for an airplane).
Another bird fell behind the spoil tip, residential areas were not affected.
No civilians were harmed.

The self-defense forces of Donetsk People’s Republic seized control of a Ukrainian anti-air military installation, RIA Novosti reports.

"Сегодня, 14.07.2014г., ополчением для уничтожения самолета АН-26 противника на высоте более 6 000 метров было применено ЗРК "9К37М1" (более известное, как "Бук"). Несколько недель назад сообщалось о захвате ополчением этих средств ПВО, но, к сожалению, с неисправной электронной частью. Чуть позже Сергей Кургинян заявлял, что российское гражданское общество сможет найти выскоколассных специалистов, способных отремонтировать противовоздушный комплекс и привести его в состояние боеготовности. Сейчас БУК укомплектован экипажем и введен в строй."

"Today, 14.07.2014g., Militia to kill AN-26 aircraft at an altitude of more enemy 6000 meters was used SAM" 9K37M1 "(better known as the" Book "). Several weeks ago, reported the capture of the host of these air defense systems, but Unfortunately, a faulty electronic part. later Sergey Kurguinjan said that Russian civil society can find vyskokolassnyh specialists able to repair antiaircraft complex and lead to a state of readiness. BEECH now manned and put into operation. "

Twelve days after MH17 was blown out of the sky, pieces of the plane remain here, but for days investigators haven't been able to reach the site. On Wednesday, efforts to get to the bottom of the deadly crash hit another roadblock, as Ukrainian officials warned of possible landmines near the site.

The post you referred to has been revealed as fake.

Rebels "sezing" control of a BUK missile system, which then is filmed continueously by Ukranian friendly forces, is not likely. That has the word "False flag", written all over it.

Second, and the most important part. Ukrainian government ceased the opportunity to wage war on the Rebels, under the US/European umbrealla, to cease control of the area.

It means, they were planned ahead, and ready to take the opportunity. Which took the rebels by surprise.

I am pretty much convinced since that tragic day that it was the rebels who shot that plane down, and they are still obstructing the gathering of evidence. All the MH17 threads lead me up to say this.
People who are very critical of Western news reports, pro-Putin or suspicious of anything Ukrainian failed to present credible evidence or arguments to the contrary.

So if you have something challenging this summary by the OP, please present new arguments or new evidence.
Otherwise we are not going to buy "the Ukrainian government did it" version, nor that "it was a false flag".
Two weeks was enough to prove it.
