    This crash, just like all others, is very tragic, but for me personally this is a bit extra sensitive as I used to hunt for this livery for many months back in 2007 when Malaysia Airlines was flying to ARN. It was the best painted aircraft back in this time. R.I.P.

    > The last flight track.

    I did a playback on that last flight track and was surprised to see flight MAS17 fly over the Russian border. The flight appears to end in Russia, between the Russian cities of Shakhty and Novocherkassk. All of the news media around here have portrayed this as a plane crash in the Ukraine. Puzzling.

    Edit: Mike says that this was a projected track, not actual flight data. So mystery solved. Sorry for the confusion.
    Edit: FYI, the playback link that I was running (from SoCalBrian's post above) now points to a track that now terminates in Ukraine. My screenshot was taken from the last screen in the flight as of yesterday:

    Such a sad day, one that will have a lot of consequences. Among the 298 soles onboard were 27 Australians, making it the worst aviation incident involving Australians. Family and friends of the soles will be facing a long tough road ahead.

    My log for the aircraft, sadly the last time I'll ever log it.
