They need to get to US first... Imaging how much fuel and food you need to support a military for 200,000,000 people. How much weapons and other things. It's impossible for China to support this kind of military. poo, US would not be able to support military this big. Also, if you look at Russian and Chinese military, they build for defense, US military is build for assault.
ICBM's work pretty well. Any ground or ship forces would be taken out by the airforce and navy jets.
I am assuming that any company would research and have connections regarding hostile areas that can be hazardous to fly over.
Maybe many other companies have taken risk but it sounds like something is still missing in this picture. It's still early but this is not going to turn out well because we are all sure Russia's fingerprints are on this.

They do but like DD said there are multiple conflict area over there. Ukraine, Iraq,Syriaand afghanstan. Flight has to get from point A to point B some way. Take also that some airlines wont fly over Iran this limits your routes. Havent dispatched a plane over there for a few years so not up on the current restrictions. But at a quick glance and what I have heard Malaysia was following the FIR Notam and the one the FAA put out didnt even cover that region. Back when Iraq was very hot you had to have special permission to fly over it. But from a airline view if the controlling country put something out that it is safe to fly above a certain altitude them I have to assume that is true.
Yeah, but planes have been shot down over Ukraine for the last month, so the warning was there. The route could have easily been modified. Unfortunately, will never know why this flight was shot down and not an Air France flight or some other airline.
Personally, I think the Ukrainian separatists, pro Russians picked up a UFO and shot it down mistaking it as a Ukrainian fighter plane.
Just speculation, but still a tragic circumstance and airlines need to be on alert.
The Airliner will most likely get shutdown over this. ICAO put out a warning to avoid that region. They didnt say not to fly through it but did say it would be best to avoid it. The FAA made all US carriers avoid it and can operate in it. The lawsuit following this will put Malaysia Airlines out of business. They was struggle before the disappearance of the other flight. This one will shut them down.
The Dispatcher and Pilot are supposed to review all Notams but this Notam only went up to 290000 feet. So they just overflew the Notam.
Yeah John was the only one to play Bo. But thye did replace both was after the 3rd or 4th season due to Snyder and Wopat wanting more money. Way they wrote it in was they was cousins and Boss Hogg let Luke and Bo go drive Nascar.
