Thursday Malaysian FlightMH17 has reportedly crashed close to the Ukraine Russian border. None of the 295 people on board are accounted for.
This breaking news initially brought back recent memories of missing Malaysian FlightMH370. That plane disappeared of the radar early in March of this year and to date its fate, and that of those on board, remains unknown.

Missing Flight MH370, everything points to massive cover-up
Early reports are looking at MH17 in a different light.
Russian separatists in Ukraine, Ukrainian forces and even Russia itself is considered a possible suspect and the talk is of the plane being shot down by a missile.
In the last few moments another theory, one that it was shot down by Ukrainian forces that mistook it for Russian flight due to its signage has surfaced.
Unlike missing FlightMH370 this time there is a 'body'.
The plane has crashed and wreckage litters the area; corpses are visible. As investigations begin suspicion is resting on a missile feared but by who is still up for grabs.
If a missile shot down this plane the USA will apparently be able to track down where it was fired from. They will be able to sources images with a tell-tale purplish trail indication the plane was downed.
Questions over whether or not missing FlightMH370 was downed by a missile have lingered. The USA was in at the forefront of investigations into what caused that plane to seemingly vanish. Do they know who or what downed that flight? If so are they keeping quiet as they are involved?
