    I suspect the FR24 do receive transponder data from the military flights even though they don't share it, and could release it to the proper authorities if requested.

    Really they said that? Within less then an hour 3 more Singapore airliners will pass within 50Km of the strike zone, some as close as 20Km. All 3 Singapore airliners were A380's. It took about 2 hours before word got out there and aircraft started to re-route away from the strike zone.

    MAS17 is shot down at 13:21 z

    At 13:41 just 20 minutes later, Singapore Airlines SQ333, an A380 from Paris will pass just 50Km south of the strike zone.

    At 14:00 Singapore Airlines SQ25, an A380 from Frankfurt will pass just 20Km south of the strike zone.

    At 14:16 Singapore Airlines SQ317, an A380 from London will pass just 50Km south of the strike zone.

    Depending on their mission, Military aircraft will use various other modes that are none civilian including mode Five a cryptographically secured version of Mode S.

    In light of the recent incident, Malaysia Airlines’ Amsterdam (AMS) – Kuala Lumpur (KUL) service,
    MH17 flight number will be retired out of respect for our crew and passengers of the mentioned flight code. This will take into effect on 25 July 2014.

    There are no changes to the frequency of our services and we will continue to operate daily services between Amsterdam and Kuala Lumpur.

    The new flight number replacing MH17 will be:

    MH19 - AMS/KUL

    Our thoughts and prayers remains with the families of our colleagues and passengers of MH 17.

    -end-

    I have a question about the last position. 13:21:28 490 kts 33000 ft 48.0403 38.7728 taken from https://twitter.com/flightradar24/st...348864/photo/1
    This position would be some 15km southeast of the crash location. Is this data interpolated? If I understand correctly the last positions are reported from F-UKHH1 a receiver in Kharkiv, which is quite far away. Does the distance to a receiving station affect the "quality" of the data? Or is it pure digital with error control, all or nothing. Thanks in advance.

    F-UKHH1 simply indicates Kharkiv is the closest AIRPORT to the receiver location. Generally the airspace it is likely to cover. It doesn't mean thats where it is, it could be 100nm away, but cover with 300nm radius.

    No, it does not effect the quality. The GPS co-ordinates come from the aicraft itself. Sent to the transponder, and broadcast to be received by the hardware on the ground.

    48.0403 38.7728 looks about right... The last radar was T-UKHH1 receiving the ADS-B ... once signal was lost you'll see the FR24 system flip over to T-EST1 which I believe was MLAT trying to re-acquire the transponders signal. Once that failed it gave up.

    RC

    I am not a professional or "even" an amateur but I stumbled accross one strange thing concerning this tragic flight.

    Here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=3&theater
    This is Kor Pan's photo on his FB page before the flight with comment:
    10409688_465419050262262_114194042050554154_n.jpg
    Mocht hij verdwijnen , zo ziet hij d'r uit .
    (That's how our plane looks like in case we get lost). Alluding to the 777 vanished in march.

    Note 1: I don't see the date and time when this photo was uploaded (and EXIF of the downloaded image is blank) and I don't know how to get this information but the time and date of the first comment is 17 July 2:12 (I guess PM Amsterdam time). The following comments tell that Cor Pan was on MH-17 on July 17, 2014.

    Note 2: My eyes tell that almost certainly there are letters "RC" on the front gear leg "hatch". This is, as far as I understand, the last letters of the plane registration code. Malasian Airlines has only one plane ending with RC - 9M-MRC. But the problem is that the shutdown plane is 9M-MRD. And the second problem is that that day 9M-MRC was nowhere near Europe
    (http://www.flightradar24.com/data/airplanes/9m-mrc)

    Note 3: Kor Pan, as far as I understand, really was a passenger of MH-17. I briefly looked the passenger manifest but didn't find him there. Perhaps its his nickname.

    In the following article: http://www.thestar.com.my/News/World...alks-to-Putin/
    one can see that the photo is almost the same as in FB page. It was shot from the same place, and compared to it FB-photo looks like cropped. And there are no 2 thick yellow hoses attached to the belly of the plane + in the pilot's window there is some white thing that changes place. So these are two different photos and the article says that it belongs to REUTERS/Yaron Mofaz.
    The caption says:
    Malaysia Airlines Flight MH-17 is seen at the G3 gate of Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam, before it took off, heading to Kuala Lumpur, July 17, 2014. REUTERS/Yaron Mofaz
    While writing this post I've found one more informative article about this story: http://www.examiner.com/article/cor-...-crash-to-come

    Update: one more "RC"-article: http://chemtrailsplanet.net/2014/07/...d-crash-scene/

    Can anyone explain why previous MH17 flight routes taken from 14 to 16 July were changed post factum?
    Was: on 2014-07-17 21:51:00 (http://signor-antonio.livejournal.com/378722.html)
    Now: 14 July: http://www.flightradar24.com/data/flights/mh17/#3cfb05b
    15 July: http://www.flightradar24.com/data/flights/mh17/#3d1c512
    16 July: http://www.flightradar24.com/data/flights/mh17/#3d3d13f

    Same thing on flightaware.

    On 17 July evening (as you see on the screenshots on signor-antonio.livejournal.com) these routes 14-16 July were much more southward. Over Sea of Azov. Now they are exactly over the place of the crash.
