Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was downed on Thursday near the Ukraine/Russia border.  The flight was headed from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur scheduled to arrive on Friday morning with 295 people aboard.  Ukrainian officials are pointing a finger at pro-Russian militants, while insurgents in the area have denied being involved in the incident. 

Just 4 months ago another Boeing big body plane disappeared after losing contact with flight towers. 

Insurgents said in a report their anti-aircraft weapons could only reach 13,000 feet, below the estimated 33,000 feet flight MH17 was traveling.
