Caption: Aircraft flight recorders from a plane which crashed in Donetsk Region, Ukraine, in 2014. Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was a scheduled international passenger flight from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur which crashed on 17 July 2014, killing all 283 passengers and 15 crew on board. Commonly known as a 'black box', a flight recorder records instrument readouts when an aircraft is in flight. The data held in the recorder is used to simulate the last hours of the flight in order to determine what went wrong. In this case evidence points towards the aircraft being brought down by a surface-to-air missile launched from Eastern Ukraine.

Release details: Model release not required. Property release not required.
