"After careful consideration of the circumstances of the Boeing 777 crash, we decided to close the airspace of Ukraine," Tytgat said. He admitted that four other commercial aircrafts were in the same area at the time of the crash but that they continued flying their routes.
The aircraft was shot down at an altitude of about 10 km above the Donetsk region. It had 280 people and 15 crewmembers on board. All of them, according to the preliminary information, are dead. The Boeing-777 was flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur.
