It appears a horrible crash may have happened with another commercial airline today.
An Air Algerie flight has had no contact with Air Traffic Control and it is feared it crashed and is labeled missing at this time. There is a search for the Algerie plane as they are not sure where it is. (update, they have found it crashed in Mali)
I am seeing the headlines every where about the missing plane this morning.
There is a big difference between this plane missing and losing contact compared to MH17 losing contact in the initial reports.
Where as the MH17 flight when it was reported that it lost contact with ATC it was stated in the same breath it was shot down by a missile. That has always bothered me in "How did they immediately know it was shot down by a missile?" How is it they were able to state that fact with such certainty about MH17?
If they somehow had radar knowing MH17 was shot down by a missile the moment it lost contact, why haven't those radar images been made public? How were they able to determine it was shot down by a missile as the plane crashed compared to just saying a plane crashed without knowing what happened?
I don't remember anytime in history when a plane has gone down they had given the cause upon reporting a plane down. Normally they have to investigate it and then say what caused the plane to crash. But not with MH17.
Another thing about the reports it was immediately said it was a Russian made missile. Again how did they determine that when no investigation of it was yet done and still has not been done?
Here are some of the first reports about MH17 going down:
GRABOVO, Ukraine — A Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 with 298 people aboard exploded, crashed and burned on a flowered wheat field Thursday in a part of eastern Ukraine controlled by pro-Russia separatists, blown out of the sky at 33,000 feet by what Ukrainian and American officials described as a Russian-made antiaircraft missile.
I just wanted to point this fact out. I really wish people would begin to think for themselves instead of letting the government and media think for them. Start using critical and questioning thinking about events and do not let propaganda determine your thoughts on events. Look at things from all sides and always ask the one question with anything WHO BENEFITS from what ever event happens?
