At December 24 Netherlands largest newspaper De Telegraaf publishes an article titled “Radarimages MH17 missing”
This is an interesting article. Not for the content as all what is written in the article was known at October 13 after the publication of the final report on MH17 by the Dutch Safety Board.
The interesting aspect of the article is the timing. It appears over 2 months after the publication of the final report.
At December 15 Telegraaf published a similar article titled “Issues with MH17 evidence“. The article in fact did not contain any news facts. It was full of suggestion that evidence could have been tampered with by the Ukraine secret service.
The final report clearly states the radar images of primary radar of the Ukraine airforce and the Ukraine civil airtraffic control were not available. The first because the military radar was switched off, civil primary radar was off for maintenance at July 17.
So maybe Telegraaf gets the feeling something is not right about the MH17 investigation.
Back to the missing radar images. Both explanations given by Ukraine are very unlikely. First of all why would the airforce turn off primary radar in times of war? The reason Ukraine provided was that no military flights were planned. However many eyewitness have told they saw one or more military aircraft flying over the area where MH17 crashed. Even when no Ukraine flights were planned, it is not likely radar is switched off.
Civil radar have many hours of Main Time between Maitenance. It would be a very big coincidence that at July 17 radar was in maintenance.
