Wow, horrible story.  Lots of reports coming in now that this is an accurate report.  280 pax plus 15 crew on board.

Someone please explain why the OP has spread the same topic through different forums?

He didn't. I moved this post from PMDG forum to Hangar Chat, where it should have been posted to begin with.

I'm quite worried now, the political situation is already bad enough and affect me and million others bad enough already. And now this? Just great, again the US will try to badmouth Russia for "shooting" down this airliner.

 

However, we don't know what happened. Such a sad thing two planes of this airline, and both 777? Crashed in the same year. I hope there will be survivors to be found so we can hear what happened.

I think this was 'revenge' on MAS for their lack of answers regarding MH370

A Ukranian cargo plane was shot down a few days ago.  I sure hope that's not the case with this 777.  CBS is showing shaky footage of big smoke plumes behind some houses now.  Sad indeed.

News reports about the plane being shot down by surface to air missile.. Not confirmed.

I certainly hope not, as it's civilian lives we're talking about here. However, unfortunately due to the situation where it crashed a proper air investigation will be difficult if not impossible :(

Wow Two planes in less than 6 month, that's just the worst luck an airline can have, and they still have not located MH370 yet. The powers that be at Malaysia Airlines , have their hands full. This what you call a real P.R. nightmare!

Good point.  If you want wild speculation with no facts....tune in to CNN.

There is no confirmation this aircraft was shot down. CNN "we don't much" - however a leader of Russian separatists has claimed to have shot down "another" Ukraine aircraft at the same time MH17 went down.

I'm in a deep shock since I've heard of it. It's coming so unreal to my ears that 295 families are scattered right now.  :Cry:

I wonder indeed what's the faces of the management when they heard about this, probably fell off their chairs.

 

However all we know for now is that it was Flight 17, and shot down 50 km prior to entering Russian airspace. Along with some dodgy statement from sweden and ukraine completely irrevelant.

 

MH370 is now going to be abandoned, I guess. And will hope Malaysia Airlines will stay in the sky as I had a very good experience with this airline.

Some very graphic pictures surfacing on Twitter and such. Looks like a 777 to me - absolutely horrific.

Still photos now emerging clearly showing the Malaysian markings.  Looks like the debris field is quite lengthy.
