Malaysian Plane 'Shot Down' With 295 On Board
Posted by: Nebuchadnezzar on July 22nd, 2014 @ 1:10PM

Sad

23 Americans dead


This really is terrible. It's going to be hard to sort through the misinformation that will be pumped out by both Russia and Ukraine. I'm sure both countries will do their best to paint the other as responsible--or shift blame to a third party. In this day and age, it's hard to believe something like this could be a mistake. Malaysian Airlines is really taking it on the chin this year.

Two other notable mistakes were when the Soviet Union shot down KAL 007 (a civilian Boeing 747) and when the USS Vincennes shot down Iran Air Flight 655 (a civilian Airbus A300). Both of those incidents were definitely avoidable (KAL 007 more so). I can't believe that 26 years after IA Flight 655 that something like this would happen again.

Also, after many, many years of great flying, the 777 has been involved in three very notable crashes in the last 14 months (SFO crash upon landing, MH 370, and this). The jury is still out on the MH 370 crash, but the SFO crash and this incident are definitely not the fault of the airframe.
