Malaysia Airlines. Now I’m not victim blaming or anything…. but….

(source from my malaysian friend’s fb)

Also, according to my meager knowledge the 777-200 has a ceiling well over 40000 ft. Even if you couldn’t bother going around the conflict area, at least have the decency to climb the extra 10000 ft just in case some crazy Russians are pointing their missiles at you? Y’know, give yourself a bit of maneuvering space? In hindsight the fuel savings probably weren’t as important as the 300 lives lost (that’ll probably change in the future).

  1. In 1960, over fifty years ago, Russia had the technology to shoot down a U2 (ceiling of 70,000 ft). I doubt that they’d have any trouble in the 21st century to shoot down a commercial jet at 40,000 ft.
