We're dealing with the death and loss of life of innocent people.
Show the miniscule amount of respect, at least.

if the plane, when it crashed, hit animals..would you sympathize them? What gives humans more right to live than anything else? People don't mourn when they so recklessly kill everything else that lives and breathes. Why should I show respect? Ill show respect to who I want when I want.

get over it..i dont care if it crashed..i dont care if those people died..i could care less..deal with it


Upon first reading your first post I thought you were young then stupid. Now I think you are young, stupid and angry.

People died that had children or were children themselves, had families and many other people are hurting because they lost a loved one today. Be respectful!

I would care if you or one of your loved ones perished in such a tragic fashion, and I don't know you. But I respect your point of view as well.

On topic: Has there been anything to indicate the cause of the crash as yet?

They are saying that he plane caught fire while in the air.



The plane caught fire while airborne and disappeared from Ukrainian radar screens at 2:37 p.m. Kiev time, said Ihor Krol, a ministry spokesman, by phone today from Kiev. Helicopters discovered burning wreckage from the Tupolev Tu-154 when they arrived at the scene, he said. The flight had left from the Russian town of Anapa, he said.

Very sad. I don't like any airplane or space travel go down no matter who flys (friend/ enemy) that plane/ shuttle.

However I don't mind enemy planes going down in war.

It was attempting a crash landing...


The Russian plane, which crashed in Eastern Ukraine with 160 people onboard, was trying to make a belly landing – a type of emergency landing when the aircraft uses its underside /belly/ as primary landing device. The information was provided by Gazeta Ru, citing the company owner of the plane – Pulkovo airlines. The emergency landing was initiated due to bad weather conditions. Before crashing the crew reported a fire onboard. The plane crashed at about 40 km from the Ukrainian town of Donetsk.

Bad weather? Fire On board? Attempted crash landing? Sending SOS? How bad can it get?

My sympathies go out to the friends and families of those involved in the crash..what exactly is the safety record of the Tu-154 ? I thought that the majority of these aircraft had been replaced by western models such as the 737 etc.It appears the majority of Russian aircrashes involves these older Russian made airliners..but i will stand corrected

My idea of what happened-

The plane was hit by lightning and an engine combusted, causing the pilots to lose control and attempt a high-speed belly landing. The plane was going too fast and crashed.
