New Video Shows Two Iranian Missiles Hit Ukrainian Plane

Source: NY Times

Security camera footage verified by The New York Times shows that two missiles fired 30 seconds apart took down Flight 752, killing all aboard.

The New York Times has verified security camera footage on Tuesday that shows, for the first time, that two missiles hit Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752 on Jan. 8. The missiles were launched from an Iranian military site around eight miles from the plane.
The new video fills a gap about why the planeís transponder stopped working, seconds before it was hit by a second missile.

An earlier Times analysis confirmed what Iran later admitted: that an Iranian missile did strike the plane. The Times also established that the transponder stopped working before that missile hit the plane. The new video appears to confirm that an initial strike disabled the transponder, before the second strike, also seen in the video, around 23 seconds later.

Neither strike downed the plane immediately. The new video shows the airliner on fire, circling back toward Tehranís international airport. Minutes later it exploded and crashed down, narrowly missing the village of Khalaj Abad, an earlier Times video reconstruction, below, shows.

2. That means that their demise wasn't instantaneous

And probably they knew what was happening? I hate to think about it.

3. Damn. What a heroic effort by the pilot and crew. Trying to land a plane in flames after explosion.

All for naught.

5. The Missile downs aircraft by exploding schrapnel, not a single explosive.

Thus all the holes we see in the body of the airplane wreckage on the ground. Don't want to think what the condition of the souls on board was after the two strikes.

This murder was caused by DRump.

7. Yep. Think duck hunting with a shotgun

Lots of little pellets hitting, not one big slug.
