Expert: Plane flew 480km north of normal route
An aviation expert has claimed that the ill-fated MH17 flew a route 482 kilometre north of the usual path from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur.
According to a report by The Telegraph, Robert Mark, a commercial pilot, said most MAS planes flying between the two destinations normally travelled along a route significantly further south than the plane which crashed.
"I can only tell you as a commercial pilot myself that if we had been routed that way, with what's been going on in the Ukraine and the Russian border over the last few weeks and months, I would never have accepted that route."
