That is what i remember hearing on the net that it was 200 miles off course and it was put there by air traffic control who then replaced the Spanish controller's

I believe the Russians themselves denied this claim - but they probably would either way!
It most definitely was diverted a fair amount, but from what I can gather the flight path wasn't too unusual - as other MA flights and other airlines were frequently flying over the area despite it being a war zone.

Seems that all the sources are Russian on the link so IMO just an extension to RT, seems that the Russians are just as good at propaganda as the west.
Missiles do go for the heat source which would be the engine part of the plane, once the plane lose the engine and sustain damage to the wing it will start loosing altitude very fast , this is where the pilot finished the job with a machine gun before the pilots managed to report the incident, even if the did the tapes have been confiscated anyway
On 7 August 1988, a BAe-125 owned by the Botswana Government was carrying the President of Botswana, Quett Masire, and his staff to a meeting in Luanda. An Angolan MiG-23 pilot fired two R-60 (AA-8) missiles at the plane. One missile hit the no. 2 engine, causing it to fall off the aircraft. The second missile then hit the falling engine. The crew was able to make a successful emergency landing on a bush strip at Cutio Bie.
You are wrong , Russia has not made a direct accusation - if you read your own post you will see they state that the jets are equipped with missiles that could reach that range , they did not say it attacked.
From what I can gather - the report has not been finalized yet but members of the investigation team have made these comments and it has been confirmed to be accurate.

But the other 1000 pieces of evidence point to Ukraine/NATO false flag.
It is a slam dunk , excuse the terminology -we are talking about a complete and utter disaster here, respect is important.
