Billy Six, a German freelance journalist, published an interview with the two people who made a video of the crash site very soon after the crash.

The eyewitness tell they saw an fighter aircraft. I very much doubt about what these people could have seen. Judge yourself, the video is english and german language.

  1. I think the man does not try to beautify or invent much.
    He said that they personally did not see any fighters, only that he has heard about this from other people. On the other hand, he said that after 20-30 minutes he heard a plane flying over the crash site and saw it dropping flares. This goes in line with that witness from “Eavesdropped in Torez” reporting seeing (or hearing) a plane 36 minutes after the first post. The man has heard two not so loud bangs, and he was very close to the place!

    • That plane flying over the crash site might have been dropping flares because he too thought that another Ukrainian fighter was shot down. So it makes sense to take extra measures in the area where planes are being shot at.

        Why would that jet “think” such a thing and not talk into his radio with any other jet we was (supposedly ) doing some operation with? The only reason to “think” such thing is if another one was actually hit and he lost all contact so he needed the visual confirmation (which would be confirmed by the video of the militia searching for a reportedly crawling pilot from a downed Su).

        A perhaps simpler explanation would be that flying under 6000 meter without releasing the flares would be rather suicidal as heat-seekers would be flying for sure. But it would also imply the jet was not yet aware of a loaded radar guided BUK in that area taking deadly unstoppable aim at these jets. Or it somehow knew it wouldn’t take at him as well?

          Maybe he thought that the downed plane was not the one he was in contact with, I don’t know. Maybe he was dropping flares because he descended, like you say.

    In the video made by the two witnesses we first see the fire of the second crash site.
    At 8:20 in the Billy Six video the camera makes a pan shot over the smoke plume from the first crash site.
    We see white smoke at the ground and black smoke, which runs nearly parallel to the ground.
    I think this could not have been seen from the distance !
    The black smoke rises in the air about 1km later.
    When calculating the wind speed we should be aware of that.

    About low flying f.jet possibilities: taken into account what had happened, people (especially pro-rebel ppl) would have filmed the f.jet above the crash site.
