What commies do

This begs the question ...

I assume this is authentic. It appears the right engine and wing area took the hit. Note the camera operator is able to record the moment of impact in the first 2 seconds of this clip. Note the smoke burst left behind on impact with the #2 engine area. There is an 18 second delay (speed of sound delay) due to the distance and altitude of the explosion. Note that the pilots are maintaining wings level, the airplane and burning wing still intact, in what appears to be an uncontrolled descent from 33,000 feet when the video ends at 1+19sec.

This begs the question, how did they know it was there? Obviously someone was monitoring the sky with radar & someone said "shoot it down".

    * This is not the action of a bunch of Russian sympathizing Eukranian civilians.
    * This is the action of trained professionals (soldiers?)

The question is not only where did the missile come from, but who was operating the search radar and who has the authority to approve or order the attack. 

Question Primo: how did this video operator know to have his camera running just prior to the missile explosion? How many people run their camera in the sky looking for an airplane cruising at altitude so high that most are not visible to the human eye? -cuzzin ricky

Another thing about the video: you can hear the camera operator breathing, but there is none of the "holy shit" (in any language) exclamations you would expect to hear from someone who just happened to film a plane being hit by a missile.

This is not Malaysian Air 17. That's the video of the Antonov 26 going down Monday, 3 days before.

Not only is the silhouette a little off, there are no clouds. The day M17 went down, there were strato cumulus.

As to the idea how does one know to have camera open & running?

Missile takes 30 seconds to get to 30000 feet - makes noise and leaves big contrail - that will get the locals looking up.

Explosion mid air is next sound and visual clue.

777 took about 3 minutes to come down. So from the first clue, giving people about a minute to react and start filming, they'd easily get over 2 minutes of video.

More or less what happened here, although Antonov was WAY lower.

The person who uploaded the film concurs with Anon.

Dear non-russian speaking youtube members. This is not Malaysian plane downed in Ukraine. On this video you can see the Ukrainian military plane AN-30 downed by pro-russian separatists a couple of days before MH-17 accident.

If you are interested we can create new videos about situation in Ukraine with english titles and subtitles so that you don't get confused."

That was a manpad hit at fairly low level...most likely trying to locate the very
large missiles of the "Buk" system...Ant-30 are a dime a dozen, you wont use a ten million dollar missile to shoot down a $100,000 old surveillance, maybe artillery spotter plane. That was just a terror hit, to make Ukrainians pull back some.

As for the triple seven, any airplane heavy at 350 is right next to it's "coffin corner"
where your stall speed only differ by a few knots to your VMO, where the wings are about to rip off...
A cranky auto pilot that input too abrupt commands can make you lose 10,000 feet in a few seconds.
It's pretty eerie to watch your altimeter wind down so fast...but since there's no big hole punched
by Putin, you recover and climb back...that crap only happening outside radar coverage, of course...wink...wink...
