    That bright line left of and below the airliner is the Donetsk Sergey Prokofiev International Airport runway 8/26 = 13123 ft according to Wikipedia.
    It doesn't make sense.
    Looks like a weather satellite picture, and a Google Earth picture "photoshopped" together.

    Fighter is clearly a Su-27. And a AA missile shot on such short range? Yeah right:$

    Interesting picture review here:
    Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 was shot down by a Ukraine fighter jet, Russia claims — and now the Russians say they have proof. The day Russian President Vladimir Putin arrived at the G20 summit meeting in Brisbane, Australia, accompanied by four menacing Russian warships, and just three days after Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott confronted […]

    and here which describe the aircraft as a 767
    Russian TV just released a satellite photo which shows an Ukraine Air Force Mig-29 just as it launches a rocket to a plane supposed to be the Boeing 777 of Malaysia (MH17) The article is here http://www.1tv.ru/news/leontiev/271824

    Strange dialog. If the question is, "Did the passengers experience a last moment of terror?", the answer is almost definitely yes. If the question is. "How prolonged was that moment", I fail to see the reason for this question, other than a misery-porn fetish among the public.

    The plane didn't 'pop' out of existence. It was torn apart by aerodynamic forces, and the passengers lost consciousness probably in less than a half a minute. And although that would be a terrible half a minute, it would be enough to don a mask at least.

    There is also the possibility that the passenger was already wearing the mask due to some unexpected medical issue before the flight was struck.

    But what difference does any of this make? This is as evil and horrible as it gets. There's no point in making it more horrible.

    And a BBC article (in English) reporting on the speech by the Dutch minister:
    The Dutch foreign minister says a victim of the east Ukraine air disaster was found wearing an oxygen mask, suggesting not everyone died instantly.

    Look at the landing gear, doesn't that write "MRC"??! (MH17 was MRD)
    It is a D, there is just some glare that makes it look like a C. The conspiracy theorists jumped on that one.

    According to my dutch friends the person's facebook post was public and the photo in question was littered with comments from their friends & family expressing shock and horror that they were actually on the flight in question.

    I don't know if this one is real or not, but it wouldn't surprise me. I can see myself making a joke like that. It reminds me to the accident when one pilot said to the other "Say 'I love you' for the CVR in case we crash" (or something to that effect), and they did crash.
