Iran video appears to show missile striking Ukrainian plane

A new video as emerged which appears to show the moment a Ukrainian passenger jet was shot down in Iran. Originally obtained by the New York Times, the phone footage shows a tiny spec suddenly exploding. The light disappears before the sound of impact can be heard just over 20 seconds later. All 176 people on board were killed. The plane crashed hours after Iran targeted US military assets in neighbouring Iraq. The US and other western allies believe the passenger jet was accidentally shot down by an Iranian missile

    Sound Delay (Gaurdian Footage) (span 0:09 - 0:21) = 12s (Video cut in the middle) Gaurdian Report of delay = 24s Time missile travelled 1/4 the distance from the edge of the shot (Gaurdian Footage) (span 0:00 - 0:02) = 2s Time to travel the full distance from edge of the shot = 8s Time to travel from ground to edge of the shot = 24s Total missile flight time = 32s Time when missile launch should have been heard = 24s (+/- 10s) (If launch site is same distance as airplane) (If further away time delay longer, if closer time delay less)< (appears to be further away) Time remaining in missile flight when missile launch should have been heard = 8s (same distance) 5s (further away and dog barks) Time of recorded flight = 2s Time to hear the missile launch and begin filming = 6s (same distance) 3s (further away when dog barks) Time required to spacially assess the location of the missile = minimum 12s, maximum 30s How did the camera man know preemptively that the missile was going to strike the airplane?

    I have many doubts... an anti-air strike base launch one (or two?) missiles so easily, when they know they are at less than 4 km away from an international airport??? For sure they saw thousands of aircraft taking-off/landing from/to that airport for years on their radar... or not??? Why the hell they got crazy after the Iran attacked USA soldier in Iraq? Why the hell is always an ukranian airplane the subject of such events??? How many airplane taked-off/landed before/after the event? Whey they was not attacked too??? I have many doubts....

    How come the guy filming knows where to point the camera in complete darkness? And how come the passenger plane was all black, no blinking lights on the wings or anything?

  28. Nils-Erik Olsson

    I just find it very odd that the guy filming knows exactly where the plane is when the plane doesnt blink and with a completely black clouded sky behind the plane.

    There are a lot of great people in Iran. It's their current form of leadership that is hurting the nation. The government should do what ever means necessary to cooperate with all international officials regarding the victims aboard the flight and be clear and open about what happened, but the Iranian government has not been cooperative. They are inept and reckless as they have demonstrated showing its true colors for all the world to see. The 176 victims and their families deserve respect!
