A transcript of the communications between flight MH17, other traffic in the area and air
traffic controllers, and of communication between air traffic controllers at Dnipro and
Rostov air traffic control centres is contained in Appendix G to this report. Below is a
summary of the communication.
The flight crew of flight MH17 made initial radio contact with Dnipro Radar (Sector 2) at
12.53:29 (14.53:29 CET) and reported being at FL330. Dnipro Radar (Sector 2) requested
the flight to climb to FL350 but the flight crew replied that they were unable to do so. Six
minutes later, MH17’s flight crew asked for a clearance to deviate 20 NM to the left ‘due
to weather’; this request was approved. The flight crew next asked to climb to FL340.
Dnipro Radar responded that FL340 was not available at the time.
At 13.07:46 (15.07:46 CET) Dnipro Radar (Sector 2) transferred the flight to Dnipro Radar (Sector 4). Contact with this station was established at 13.08:00 (15.08:00 CET).
After coordinating by telephone with air traffic control in the next sector (Rostov Control,
in the Russian Federation), which the aeroplane was about to enter, flight MH17 was
cleared at 13.19:49 (15.19:49 CET) to proceed direct to air navigation waypoint RND. This
message was confirmed by the flight crew between 13.19:56 and 13.19:59 (15.19:56 and
At 13.20:00 (15.20:00 CET) Dnipro Radar (Sector 4) further advised flight MH17 to expect
a further clearance to fly direct to air navigation waypoint TIKNA after passing waypoint
RND. This message was not acknowledged by flight MH17. From this time until 13.35:50
(15.35:50 CET) Dnipro Radar (Sector 4) called flight MH17 repeatedly, and also contacted
Rostov Control, but no response from MH17 was received. The flight crew of the nearby
aeroplane, Singapore Airlines flight 351, en-route from Copenhagen to Singapore, was
asked if they could see flight MH17 either visually or on the Airborne Collision and
Avoidance System display. The flight crew of Singapore Airlines flight 351 answered that
they could not see flight MH17. Singapore Airlines flight 351 also tried, without success,
to contact flight MH17 by radio on the emergency frequency 121.5 MHz. Following the
transmission at 13.20:00 (15.20:00 CET), the last radio transmissions from Dnipro Radar
(Sector 4) to flight MH17 were ten unanswered calls between 13.26 (15.26 CET) and 13.35
No distress messages from flight MH17 were received by air traffic control.
USA is losing face in our capabilities to fight ISIS, and now they're lashing out after Russia steps in to make us look like fools. This move was so easily predictable I don't understand how anyone could take it seriously.
I had wondered about the US satellite that must have spotted the missile launch but it's not in there .
Smugness becomes you all the report says it was shot down with a buk it's still up for debate whom shot it down.
I look forward to the Russian final report and I sincerely hope this matter is cleared rather quickly for the families of the victims sake.
It is been dragged out and vague for political reasons.
In my personal opinion is the Dutch are afraid to come out and point the finger and show all the evidence because what they have is insofisint the Russian final report hopefully will be just that final closure.
It looks like it was a missile but who and how it was fired is still up in the air .
Is it possible to strap one of those on a fighter jet and launch it .
The reason I ask is because of the 2 mig's .
Plus no one recorded the rocket trails .
It could be possible that no one recorded it but one would thing there has to be a vid or a pic somewhere .
I'll admit that the report says basically what the tabloid msm said the day after the incident.
I'll admit the chances of that being the truth is a million to one.
I'll admit that their is eyewitness and radar reports of a fighter jet.
I.'ll admit the US said they have satellite images.
I'll admit that the truth of this incident is not going to come out for a long time because it's just a stick to beat Russia with and if the plane was shot down by accident and consequently covered up I Will still support the Russian efforts in Syria my gut feeling is that ain't going to be the case.
I pose this question to you since its not proven who did where do you stand if it turns out Kiev is responsible witch would also make USA an accomplice ??
