    People are so dumb. lol at people saying Rust is crowdfunded.. When you buy something "early access" you are just pre-ordering it and giving the developer money.

    I wonder if some of the updates will be similar to the fixes that appear in P3D. I dunno if those were done by Lockheed Martin or by Microsoft before they dropped the ESP engine.

    I am sure I heard mentions of Spotify when this was first mentioned. I cannot remember if it was an actual mention or someone poking around files.

    I've only seen a sign like that a couple of times in my life (and that has been spent living near many motorways). The one that comes to mind is in Dover, at the start of a motorway. Maybe they are...

    The pirate bay wont be unblocked as it has nothing to do with this, there is an injunction requiring certain ISPs to block it. That would have to be overturned for it to be unblocked.

    The blackbox will not (and cannot) prove who shot it down. The only thing it will be able to show is if it instantly exploded in mid air or fell from the sky mostly intact.

    The claim is they are handing it to ICAO, which is the international aviation regulation body. They are probably the most neutral people that could assist in this matter IMO.

    Firing a missile that is capable of destroying any aircraft it hits is something that should be done with caution.

    FlightRadar doesn't use radar (despite its name), it relies on reporting signals from the aircraft themselves. So you will never see things that a radar would see (like a missile).

    Could just be another plane flying past. Its hard to tell from a video, I wouldn't trust a video of FR24 when you can link to that moment in time and see what the aircraft was reporting as.

    Military planes don't show on FR24, they don't carry (or have turned off) ADS-B transceivers.

    It wasn't a dangerous area till very recently (like the last couple of days), all the previous shoot downs were within MANPAD range.

    At cruise altitude planes aren't at threat from MANPADs (only during landing / take off / holding) which is probably why they kept flying over. The threat is only there if a proper SAM system is in...

    I hate to say this, but given the altitude it couldn't have just been rebels. If it was really shot down, and at cruise alts then it would have had to be a "proper" SAM system. Which require people...

    After he was found guilty they said that apparently all the victims (unbeknownst to each other) described the same pattern so it doesn't seem to be a bunch of people just claiming it.
