Malaysia Airlines MH17 Passenger Posts Of Missing Flight MH370
Dutchman Cor Pan, who was flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur Thursday, took to Facebook to post a picture of the plane he was about to board. “If it disappears, this is what it looks like,” Pan wrote.
After Pan’s post started to become viral on the Internet, it was confirmed that he was indeed on the plane that crashed in Ukraine, leaving no survivors of the 280 passengers and 15 crewmembers. Pan’s partner Neeltje Tol had been traveling with him.
It is believed that Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 was shot down from the sky by either the Ukrainian government or pro-Russian separatist groups that have been warring in the region. Neither side has taken responsibility for downing the passenger plane as of yet. It is thought to have been an accident, with the culprit not knowing it was a commercial plane above.
On March 8, Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 disappeared en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people aboard. Despite ongoing efforts to locate the aircraft, investigators have yet to determine where it crashed or what led to its inexplicable disappearance off the radar.
