Malaysia Airlines Ukraine Crash: FAA Bans U.S. Flight Routes Over Region

TIME

The Federal Association of Aviators (FAA) has released a Notice to Airman barring U.S. flight operations within the Simferopol and Dnepropetrovsk regions of Eastern Ukraine following the crash of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17, which was reportedly shot down over the war-torn area.

The new flight paths prohibited on Thursday are an addition to routes that were axed by the FAA in April throughout the Crimean region of Ukraine, the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov. “Events have indicated the potential for continued hazardous activities,” The FAA wrote in the statement.

  1. Seems invidious to like this post when it’s such an appalling tragedy but I guess it shows I appreciate the reblog. Where the world is heading I dread to think.

  2. Is somewhat invidious –not really a liking as much as an accepting and an acknowledging that the world seems heading for locations that a world with any liking, believing, endorsing of humanity should ever be able to go! Just where are we going? –and, more importantly, how do we come back? Will we ever be able to serve full course meals of love? –or haven’t we a taste for love anymore? –have our palettes adjusted to only bold and vindictive tastes? –and does love taste too mildly? –as if nothing has been eaten? –I wonder, just how bold to serve tragedy after tragedy? –on such circumstances as this world, wouldn’t love be the bold serving, the bold idea to fine upon?

  3. Really? I mean did it really take this tragedy in order for the decision to be made not to fly over that region? Really?

    People need to open their eyes! Get your heads out of the shopping malls and the latest TV shows and start looking at the real world and I am not just talking about your front yards. Ask 10 random people about something going on now or something that has happened in the past 5 years and see how many will not have a clue as to what you are talking about. Honestly I would not be surprised if it were as high as 8 out of 10.

  4. Hi there! Would you mind if I share your blog with my facebook group? There’s a lot of folks that I think would really enjoy your content. Please let me know. Thank you
