New Footage: Malaysia Airlines Plane Shot Down In Ukraine

THIS footage shows the horrific aftermath of Malaysian Airline's flight MH17's crash landing in east Ukraine, close to the village of Grabovo. After hearing a loud explosion and seeing the plane hit the ground, a local motorist ground to a halt and filmed what followed on their camera phone. The crashed aircraft, which was carrying 295 passengers, can be seen erupting into a giant fireball, with a plume of dark smoke rising high into the sky. The commercial airliner was reportedly shot down by separatist rebels using surface-to-air missiles during a flight from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur. The cameraman had no idea the plane was a civilian flight and can be heard speculating about why the pilot didn't escape using a parachute. The crash and subsequent explosion scattered debris over an estimated radius of 4km, leaving crash investigators with a complex job on their hands.
