Ukraine airspace after Malaysian airliner was shot down

After the reported shooting down of Malaysian airliner (Flight MH17), it seems all air traffic was directed to leave or avoid Ukraine airspace. Above is an amazing image tweeted by NewsWeek. Sadly it would appear that all 295 people on board died as a result of this horrific  incident. Initial reports are that pro-Russian groups are the cause of this incident and are now hampering efforts by Ukrainian investigators to retrieve the black box flight recorded.

We will be updating this story as more information comes to light.

 

Some pictures of the crash zone are coming to light.
