MH17 ... RIP

collected July 2014

Footage that claims to show the moment flight MH17 crashed into the ground is circulating social media.

Despite the text "RIP Passengers of FlightMH17" being the popularly attributed caption, the video actually shows a completely different and unrelated crash of National Airlines flight 102, a cargo plane that crashed in Afghanistan after its cargo became loose and moved to the back of the plane. The crash killed all 7 people on board the plane.

From all accounts flight MH17 was destroyed whilst in the sky and thus would not have hit the ground intact as depicted on this video.

As always, ensure you verify the information you share across social media before you hit the share button.
