Belarus alleges Ukraine authorities threatens Belavia pilot and forces aircraft’s return to Ukraine airport



It will come as no surprise to anyone who has followed the saga of Malaysian Airlines flight MH-17 that Russia has again trotted out a general who claims that neither Russia nor its Russia-based rebels could possibly have shot down the plane tnat resulted in 298 dead men, woman and children.  The only consistent theme in these denials is that neither Russia nor any of its Donbas proxies could possibly be responsible. And just as in the past, the evidence studied in immnse detail by the Dutch air crash service strongly suggests that Russian military personnel committed this mass murder.

Not only is Turkish Airlines expanding its service in Ukraine but it has hit the jackpot as a movie sponsor. On January 29, 2016, Turkish Airlines announced its partnership with Warner Bros to sponsor Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice movie. In the movie, a pivotal scene unfolds aboard a 777 Turkish Airlines plane. Just a few hours ago, Forbes magazine announced that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opened all around the world over the last week, and it netted a superb $254 million in foreign box office. That’s the fifth biggest overseas debut of all time.

Of the 62 dead in the crash, there were 55 passengers and 7 crew; they included 18 men, 33 women and 4 children


At this time, there is no satisfactory explanation as to why the pilot circled Rostov’s airport for two hours rather than diverting to other airports within 30 minutes flying time.


Reports say the plane abandoned its initial attempt to land and circled for two hours before crashing at the second attempt.
