Ukraine's Security Service Has Confiscated Air Traffic Control Recordings With Malaysian Jet

Tyler Durden's picture


Earlier, when we commented in the abnormality in the flight path of flight MH-17 we said that "perhaps before coming to "certain" conclusion about the involvement of this rebel or that, the key questions one should ask before casting blame, is why did the pilot divert from his usual flight plan, why did he fly above restricted airspace, and just what, if any instructions, did Kiev air control give the pilot in the minutes before the tragic explosion?"

The simple answer would have come if Ukraine had merely released the Air Traffic Control recording from the tower and flight MH 17, something Malaysia did in the aftermath of the disappearance of flight MH 370, which at last check has still not been uncovered.

It now appears that answer will not be forthcoming because as the BBC reports "Ukraine's SBU security service has confiscated recordings of conversations between Ukrainian air traffic control officers and the crew of the doomed airliner, a source in Kiev has told Interfax news agency."

What happens to the recordings next is completely unknown. What is known is that any hope of getting an undoctored explanation why the plane flew as it did, or what the pilots may have seen or said in the moments before the explosion, is forever gone.

It also means that any hope of actually working with facts instead of emotional appeals, and getting to the bottom of the Malaysian airline tragedy, resides in what may be recorded by the black box, whose location right now is now exactly clear. From the Independent:

"Ukraine's emergency services have found two black boxes at the crash site of the downed Malaysia Airlines flight MH17, the governor of eastern Ukraine's Donetsk region has been quoted as saying.


"Two black boxes were found by our emergency services. I have no information on where these boxes are at the moment," Kostyantyn Batovsky told the Interfax-Ukraine news agency.


Pro-Russian separatists in the region said on Thursday they had found one black box when the Malaysian airliner came down between Krasni Luch in Luhansk region and Shakhtarsk in the neighbouring region of Donetsk.


The Interfax-Ukraine news agency had claimed the first black box has been sent to Moscow for analysis, the BBC reported. The news agency now reports a second black box has been recovered at the crash site.


Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has been quoted as saying Russia does not plan to take the "black box" flight recorders from downed Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 in territory held by pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine,


However, separatist leader Aleksandr Borodai told the Associated Press: "No black boxes have been found ... We hope that experts will track them down and create a picture of what has happened."


A spokesman for the Emergencies Ministry in Kiev declined to comment on the report.

In other words, even more fact-free confusion and speculation which is just what a propaganda-based reporting system needs.

And so, just like in the case of flight MH-370, what actually happened with MH-17 may never be known.

Malasia Air's statements do not even mention US passengers, where is the 23 dead Americans meme coming from?


3.    Nationalities

Following this afternoon’s press conference, Malaysia Airlines can confirm that a further 16 passengers’ nationalities have been verified. The latest breakdown of nationalities of those on board the flight is as follows:

·         189 Netherlands

·         44 Malaysia

·         27 Australia

·         12 Indonensia

·         9 UK

·         4 Belgium

·         4 Germany

·         3 Philippines

·         1 Canada

·         1 New Zealand

Four passengers’ nationalities remain to be verified.

That link also has the cargo manifest. Some stand outs:

1 Live Dog

1 Shipment of Pot

1 Used Household

1 Diplomatic Mail

Info for consideration from JS site.



Selective censorship of MH17 coverage speaks volumes

I thank the many readers who provided relevant input, yours can really make a difference.


Here is the most heavily censored thing, and the background on it

Fighter jet escorts reveal the real story

 Immediately after the shoot down, foreign people entered the nearest control tower that was monitoring flight MH17 and removed the normal workers and started doing their jobs. These "replacements by force" were obviously put there to front the official story. The normal control tower staff then reported the presense of two fighter jet escorts via Twitter. These tweets were subsequently removed by Twitter. However, the normal tower staff has successfully gotten through to various honest news outlets such as THIS ONE so the fact that "MH17" was under fighter jet escort will not be buried by Twitter or any replacement staff.

Word is going around that the pilot resisted verbally several times the order to decend to 30,000 ft.

This is likely recorded at several points- black box, traffic control, Norad (yes Norad), as well as anyone else who was listening in and happened to be recording at the time.

Also, apparently  - flight departure times are inconsistent.

One last interesting piece for consideration from JS:


'And a final nail - MH17 is proceeding as normal, with normal flights THE DAY AFTER. When MH370 vanished, that route was cancelled FOR WEEKS. WHAT IS UP WITH THAT? Is anyone out there really stupid enough to believe business as usual would resume the the next scheduled flight after a genuine loss of an aircraft that flies anywhere near a war zone? That next scheduled flight is LANDING IN MALAYSIA THE DAY AFTER ON SCHEDULE AS I WRITE THIS, and I beg to question WHY. Is anyone out there gullible enough to buy the notion of business as usual after a genuine unexpected shoot down, or perhaps more importantly, the loss of two IDENTICAL 777 aircraft from the SAME AIRLINE within 4 months? FIGURE THE ODDS.'

Ukraine airspace IS NOT CLOSED.


Ukraine airspace over the eastern portion of the country is restricted below 32,000 ft. 

Ukraine airspace over Luhansk and Donetsk is not under Air Traffic Control (ATC) because the rebels destroyed the ATC communication and radar towers in those oblasts. The IACO advises against overflying those oblasts since communications are not reliable and ATC radar is limited.

Airlines can do what they want. If they all want to file a flight plan that overflies Luhansk or Donetsk right now, they can. ATC cannot and will not 'divert' them. If the airlines want to file a flight plan to the South Pole and then back up to Asia to keep well away from Ukraine, they can. It's their call.

All the following FAA notices apply to U.S. pilots/carriers. The U.S. FAA has no jurisdiction over foreign carriers like Malaysian Airlines or its pilots. Foreign pilots/carriers usually heed FAA NOTAMs anyway (as did MH17)


2014.04.13 00:00 FAA SFAR 113

Prohibits operation in the Simperofol Flight Information Region (around Crimea and the surrounding Black Sea area) for the next year. Mostly due to confusion about which country (UKR or RUS) will administer the region.

Closes segment ATS routes in DNEPROPETROVSK FIR from 14,000 - 26,000 ft (FIR is in Eastern Ukraine area - loss of comm/navigational aids for air corridors; aircraft can still plan flight through and overfly direct via GPS instead of via ATS routes)

The problem with the American list is that of the others listed The IRS has claimed that 23 of the others were born in the USA or have a connection like a great grandfather that was American and becuase of new FACTA law they must be considered Americans for tax purposes.

No problem. Now adays the IRS determines who is american or dual nationality. They just want to be able to tax the multimillion dollar settlement.

No confusion here at all.

First of all it's not Obama. He is a half-witted stooge. He does what he is told to do and say. Second, the reason for the provocation is that they, meaning the Nazis that are running the government (largely) are losing the game. The Russians have the natural resources (especially natural gas and oil) and the Chinese have the industrial capacity. The US/UK team is headed for the third world almost immediately. Jim Sinclair says 2020 is the end of the American empire and says he gets this date from the financial leaders of the world. The Nazis are fighting a desperate battle to preserve their power. They will do anything to try to keep it. The reason you can trust what Putin and friends is saying and doing is that they are winning and the players winning the game are much more likely to play "fair." The losers are going to try anything to change the game including  the destruction of whole countries (Iraq, Libry, Syria, Ukraine, etc), In any case, don't worry about Obama, he is a half-witted crooked stooge from Chicago's southside where all the politicians belong to the mob (I am from Chicago and I have seen this all my life).

Indeed. When everything is lies, all that is left is political opinions. I have noticed the entire world shifting from facts and science, law and physics to Political Ideology and rank opinion based on ideology. You notice that there are no facts, no evidence that can be agreed upon. Nope. All you get is nationalistic lies and political opinion.

If you like Ukraine, then there are only one set of facts possible.

If you prefer Moscow, then only a fact that favors them is possible.

You can see this everywhere nowdays. There is no reality, no way to agree on a fact, even the laws of physics are laughed at as rubbish if they do not give the answers aomeones particular political and world view demands.

As of now this whole story is hopeless. As many truths and facts as possible are being ditched and destroyed so that only the political screamers remain. You know, "GLory to Ukraine" screamers are throwing away the air traffic control tapes and the USA is silent. Hmmm?  Everybody has different facts. In fact, there is no such thing as a fact, only a political opinion.

Deniers abound, all they want is facts that please them. If they are not pleased, their personal mind set satisified, then the facts are wrong! Fuck, the humans of the 21st century are sinking below 12th century thinking. At least those people tried to escape ignorance and learn to improve, WE sink backwards demanding to be pleased in everything.

In defense of "facts" I have to point out that the issue lies more with "truths" than what is NOT arguable: facts.  We are, it seems, substituting "fact" with "truth," and this is our un-doing.

Fact: 1 + 1 = 2

Truth: Whatever the hell one wants it to be, it is NOT "fact."

Truth is why 1 + 1 = 2

If you know why then you can always prove truth definitively.

...and scientific 'truths' that are found within theories are mere probabilities that haven't yet been disproved. Scientists who disagree with the fact that 'science can never provide the ultimate truth', also lock horns with the very scientific method they espouse to work within.

Real science seeks to disprove, not prove.

They have to be facts because they define a system and you can't violate those truths regardless of symbolic deception or else the system wouldn't exist period.

Go read up on Peano's postulates and you'll understand why. They are absolute facts, not conditional ones. You can't violate postulates even if you wanted to else the system would cease to be.

Are those communications recorded on every plane then as well?

Yes, on the voice black box, usually a two hour loop.  However, here is the kicker, the tape is metallic and I'm sure I read an accident report where they managed to reconstruct previous 6 layers (previous loops) using sophisticated techniques.  In other words, it may be possible to reconstruct up to the last 12 hours of recordings if the box is physically removed from the aircraft for analysis.  This would not be a normal maintenance procedure.   There may also be a third black box or QAR (Quick Access Recorder) that is routinely pulled by the airlines for analysis by their safety department.  This is looking for takeoff & landing red flags (unstable approaches etc). 

The QAR is just a floppy disc or the new ones are wireless via ACARS.  There is also other telemetry that goes out via CPCLD datalink & ACARS and as per MH370.  ACARS recievers can be cobbled together for a few hundred bucks & there is a network of plane spotters that decode & share this stuff around.  Modern aircraft broadcast a ton of data, and it would have all been captured by both the Russians & the US, and possibly others with low cost equipment.

Always remember:


The director of the National Security Agency under Ronald Reagan – Lt. General William Odomnoted:

"Because the United States itself has a long record of supporting terrorists and using terrorist tactics, the slogans of today’s war on terrorism merely makes the United States look hypocritical to the rest of the world.

By any measure the US has long used terrorism. In ‘78-79 the Senate was trying to pass a law against international terrorism – in every version they produced, the lawyers said the US would be in violation."

Such a law was never passed.



Case in point:

"In 1984 the Nicaraguan government filed a suit in the International Court of Justice (ICJ) against the United States. Nicaragua stated that the contras were completely created and managed by the U.S.[49] Although this claim was rejected, the court found overwhelming and undeniable evidence of a very close relationship between the Contras and the United States.[49] The U.S. was found to have had a very large role in providing financial support, training, weapons, and other logistical support to the Contras over a lengthy period of time, and that this support was essential to the Contras.[49]

In 1984, the ICJ ordered that the United States should stop mining Nicaraguan harbors, and that the U.S. should respect Nicaraguan sovereignty.[50] A few months later the court ruled that it had jurisdiction in the case, contrary to what the U.S. had argued.[50] The ICJ found that the U.S. had encouraged violations of international humanitarian law by assisting paramilitary actions in Nicaragua. The court also criticized the production of a manual on psychological warfare by the U.S. and its dissemination of the Contras.[50] The manual, amongst other things, provided advice on rationalizing the killing of civilians, and on targeted murder. The manual also included an explicit description of the use of "implicit terror."[50]

Having initially argued that the ICJ lacked jurisdiction in the case, the United States withdrew from the proceedings in 1985.[50] The court eventually ruled in favor of Nicaragua, and judged that the United States was required to pay reparations for its violation of International law.[50] The U.S. used its veto on the United Nations Security Council to block the enforcement of the ICJ judgement, and thereby prevented Nicaragua from obtaining any compensation."

The difference here is that the Russians have ground based signal intercept infrastructure in close proximity to Ukraine and they're actively listening right now. Even the Swiss Onyx infrastructure might have a copy. So if there's anything really incriminating on the tapes, they could still see the light of day.

lol, Interfax is as about as impartial as RT, and they have not identified their source.  This is B.S. Tyler, give us something substantial next time please.

I imagine Russia, the U.S., and possibly others monitor all these types of communications anyway.

Here is a potential narrative for you:


  • "Moscow has played "the usual game of deflection," noting it has put out "nonsense stories to send people down a rabbit hole" and hamper the investigation."

  • "These separatist leaders are taking orders from Russia and (Russian President Vladimir Putin) has to realize the consequence of sending heavy and sophisticated weapons to a gang of sociopaths, extremists, violent thugs, nationalists and agents who are just given weapons and told to make chaos..."

  • "Shortly after the passenger plane was downed, Strelkov – seen smirking in propaganda photos – tweeted a boastful message claiming responsibility. At the time, he apparently believed he had shot down an Antonov-26 military plane of the Ukrainian Air Force, saying it landed near a mine named Progress.  His chilling message read: ‘In the area Torez we just hit down An-26, it’s lying somewhere in the mine 'Progress'.  ‘We warned you – do not fly in 'our sky'...Later as the horror became clear, the tweet was deleted."

Why is that one black box sent to Moscow anyways? Russia has NOT juristiction over this case whatsoever, as the aircraft was NOT in Russian airspace at the time of the crash, nor did it crash on Russian territory. 

Traditionally, a crash investigation team is composed of investigators from; the country of registry (9M = Malaysia), country of where the crash happened (Ukraine) and country of aircraft manufacture (United States).

Go ahead with the red kudos again, but sending the black box to Moscow without any observers from the countries mentioned above, is yet another nail in the coffin of Putin's credibility in the downing of MH17.

p.s. oh yes, real gentlemen those rebels:

Truth is, a jury decides if the accused is innocent based on the "facts" presented.  There is no compesation for the wrongly accused.  Tuff luck charlie, just be happy you're not in jail.

There were several reporters there yesterday including one from Reuters who seem to be very quiet today.

The truth is rapidly disappearing so that no-one will get the blame, it is too embarrasing all round.

On that Spanish air-traffic controller working the Ukraine who has a story to tell -in Spanish

"This story in the Spanish language Russia Today, is a follow-up to yesterday's story about a Spanish Air Traffic Controller who tweeted that Kiev was behind the shot down of MH17 and that Kiev military forces had confiscated all the radar tapes in the area (shades of TWA 800!) The tweet was erased and there were a flood of counter-tweets insisting the story was a hoax and the man did not really exist. This story, which includes a video interview, confirms the man is real and that he was forced to flee for fear of his life."...

Fleed to where? That would be a hell of a feat to flee Ukraine to Spain in 24 hours especially when you are on the radar so to speak.
