Another Malaysia Airlines Disaster

Coming hot on the heels of the MH370 mystery yet another Malaysia Airlines (MAS) Boeing 777 has met a tragic end. Initial findings indicate the doomed aircraft was brought down by a surface to air (SAM) missile. The Russian BUK SAM launcher (file pic below) is widely thought to be the weapons system that was involved as it is able to hit targets three times the height MH17 was at 33,000 feet.

It is understood that many airlines already avoided the conflict-torn Ukraine/Russia region as early as April but why MAS did not follow suit time will tell.

It was learned that contact was lost with the doomed flight at 10.15pm (Malaysian time +8GMT) last night.
