Aussies & a Canadian on doomed MH17
 
http://www.news.com.au/travel/travel...-1226994453988

The Amsterdam-Kuala Lumpur flight shot down over the Ukraine had about 40 Australians (including permanent residents on foreign passports) and a Canadian. I understand it had no US citizens. It was infuriating that bodies and evidence at the crime scene were being shifted/removed/tampered with and the international community was obstructed from doing what had to be done.

It could easily have been my wife and kids on that flight. They visited Irish relatives and in early July flew from Cork to Amsterdam to their Asian stopover (which was Hong Kong, although they had considered Kuala Lumpur). And the Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott's daughters recently flew from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur on MH17.

this event is a game changer I'm afraid.. I was not surprised there wasn't any co-operation. They're dealing with murderers and they don't follow rules..
Whatever happens I think this tragedy is a game changer for sure... scary stuff indeed..

The Black Box is now at Farnborough. Some bodies have been released and are being flown back to Holland. What motivates people to commit this heinous crime?
