"Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was flying just 1,000 feet (300 metres) above restricted airspace when it was shot down, according to the European air traffic control body. Eurocontrol said Ukrainian authorities had barred aircraft from ground level to 32,000 feet but the doomed aircraft was cruising at 33,000 feet, still within range of sophisticated ground-to-air weaponry, when it was hit." "Before every long-haul flight, airline pilots are given clearance by the air traffic control bodies along their route. Once airborne, flights can still be rerouted for safety reasons by air traffic controllers as they enter a country's airspace so, in theory, the pilots of flight MH17 could have been warned by Ukrainian air traffic control of a threat from military forces on the ground more than 30,000ft below." As seen on someone's wall: "US Federal Aviation Authority issued notice forbiddingUS airlines from flying over the region wayback in April." If this is true, we need to pay attention when they issue such notices. Sedang berlegar di Twitter.
For the sake of our remaining collective humanity, how about we don't RT photos of the victims in the field, their passports, etc. #mh17.
In respect 4 the #MH17 crash, we will postpone our #blog post "Top 10 Things Not to Say to a Pilot" for 24 hours. So whom are we blaming for shooting down the plane? Russia or Ukraine? Who has the higher population of Muslims?
