A Malaysia Airlines passenger plane with 295 people on board has been shot down over eastern Ukraine, Sky News is reporting.

The Boeing 777 was believed to have been flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur when it was reportedly brought down by a ground-to-air missile, an adviser to the Ukrainian interior ministry told Sky News.

As details are developing, Fox News is reporting:

“Malaysia Airlines has lost contact of MH17 from Amsterdam,” read a tweet from the airline. “The last known position was over Ukrainian airspace. More details to follow,” read a tweet from Malaysia Airlines’ account.

Multiple reports said the plane was shot down at cruising altitude. Anton Gerashenko, an adviser to Ukraine’s Interior Minister told The Associated press that the plane, carrying 280 passengers and 15 crew people onboard, was shot down.

There are not expected to be any survivors.

Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 disappeared on March 8,  carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew on a route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing and has yet to be found.

    Possibility: someone was trying to shoot down Putin’s plane, which looks incredibly similar in markings and size to the Malaysian airlines plane, and was flying the same route, at approximately the same time.
