A Malaysian passenger plane has been shot down as it flew above eastern Ukraine, according to aviation sources.

Lord, have mercy on all passengers and their familes.

Lord have Mercy on those souls.

On another important note, there was another Malaysian Airlines plane that went missing not so long ago, MH370 which many Malaysians(me included) place blame on the government for delaying the relaying of information and whatnot. There's even been speculation at the time of the Malaysian Government being responsible, especially given the imprisonment of a popular political figure at the time, especially given that this political figure is contesting in a state by-election.

It is also on FOX News and the BBC:

Quote
[K.T. McFarland, a former deputy assistant secretary of defense under President Ronald Reagan, and a Fox News national security analyst said it is most likely the attack was the work of Russian separatists, not the Russian or Ukrainian army.

“I think it’s far more likely it was rebel forces in eastern Ukraine trying to get the Russian back involved," McFarland said./quote]

Lord, have mercy...and memory eternal to all the innocents who lost their lives.

So very sad....no matter the cause.
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria

Lord have mercy! Those poor people - I hate plane crashes.
It's common knowledge that you secretly want to be born in early 17th century Russia.  As a serf or a royal, I know not.  Chances are serf.

Lord have mercy indeed and though only God knows the truth an Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University expert on these matters has said that they are two different planes (EDIT: models) and there is likely not correlation between the crashes than the airline, which I am inclined to believe as an aviation geek with a morbid interest in airline crashes. MH370 was either a conspiracy as you explain or a mysterious crash, while this current case has to do with the crisis in Ukraine. God correct me if I am wrong. Sorry moderators. I shall open a thread or find the proper thread in the proper section. Just wanted to respond. Lord have mercy! Eternal memory to the victims!

Lord have mercy.
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai

May their memories be eternal. Lord, have mercy on their souls and on their families.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

As for MH17, I would agree that there isn't any correlation with the previous MH370 incident and it is caused by the crisis in Ukraine. However as for MH370, I do believe that the Malaysian government does have something to hide or is somehow responsible for its disappearance. The way it handled its disappearance and the time of occurrence all point to that direction. Prior to MH370's disappearance though, there have been many speculations about the government from rigging elections and widespread corruption.

Lord have mercy on their souls and their families.
