Sup Travellers?! According to reports from basically every single news source on the internet, another Malaysian plane has apparently fell from the sky. The difference with this one and the one that went missing a couple months ago is that we know exactly where it is.

But the fact that we know where it is is what makes this one a bit more hopeless. Reuters reports that all 295 people who were aboard a Malaysian airliner died after the Boeing 777  was shot down from the sky while flying over Ukraine.

Witnesses say body parts are scattered over a distance of 15km, suggesting the plane broke up in mid-air.

Malaysia Airlines said on its Twitter feed it had lost contact with its flight MH-17 from Amsterdam. "The last known position was over Ukrainian airspace," it said.

The plane was shot down while flying over the city of Donetsk, stronghold of pro-Russian rebels, Anton Gerashchenko which leaves many to wonder why the plane was flying over such a dangerous airspace.

The Russian newspaper Rossiyskaya Gazeta reports that the pro-Russian separatist faction in Ukraine denies any involvement with the collapse of Flight MH17. “We simply do not have such air defense systems,” one representative said. “MANPADS have our firing range of 3-4 thousand meters, Boeing is flying at a much higher altitude.”

Is this in anyway linked to the missing flight MH370? It may be a completely separate incident but you never know. I'll await more details before jumping to any conclusions 

My condolences go out to the families who have to endure the death of their loved ones from this tragic incident. My name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
