New radar data indicating that military aircraft were in the air near Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 when it crashed in eastern Ukraine on July 17 has been released by a Russian air safety consultancy.
The consultancy provided a snapshot representing the readings taken by a radar station located in Russia’s Rostov, near the Ukrainian border, shortly before and about 20 minutes after the MH17 crash.
According to Sergey Melnichenko, CEO of Aviation Safety consultancy, there were one or two warplanes in the air close to the Malaysian airliner. The data casts doubt on the version of the tragedy favored by Western nations, which claims the plane was shot down from the ground by rebel forces with a sophisticated surface-to-air missile. the purple line indicates the path of this "supposed military craft "

Well, we know there were SAM assets in the theatre. Just because there were "jets" in the area doesn't mean they were the ones who pulled the trigger. To the contrary, it gives the perfect rationale for the separatists to fire upon the "wrong" target. I don't think anyone who's rational believes the incident was more than a wreckless act of war.
