Sometimes the truth is crazier than fiction. On the 17th July 2014 a passenger boarding Malaysia airlines flight MH17 for some reason decided to snap the photo above, and post to his Facebook. with the caption “If it disappears this is what it looks like” We can guess that after the disappearance of Malaysia Flight MH370 on 8th March 2014, he must have seen the humour in the post. Unfortunately the real irony of his post is something that he would never get to see.
We now know that the ill fated flight MH17 was shot down by a Russian surface to air missile. With the knowledge that you are a lot safer in flight than any other mode of transport, and also with the thought that lightning doesn’t strike the same place twice, I’m sure the last thing on the passengers mind was that he might be in any kind of danger before he boarded the flight.
Sadly this was the last thing he would ever post to Facebook.
