Both the cockpit and the cockpit roof were found nearest the last known recorded position of the aircraft, while the main fuselage, wings and tail were furthest from that position. This is the first indicator of attack by means other than a ground-launched guided missile. The second indicator of attack by aircraft is the concentration of projectile holes in the forward section. SAM missiles target the heat signature of the engines.
This is the remains of the cockpit floor. Notice the circled indentations and holes–all indicating an attack from above. If the cause of the many holes was a SAM missile from the ground, the holes would have been from beneath the floor.
Cockpit roof found 1.7 km North of cockpit window assembly, projectile holes from exterior above.
The main wreckage site was located at the south-western corner of the town of Hrabove, 8.5 km from last recorded FDR position of the aircraft.
Please don't go repeating the false statements that the cover-up NATO nations use. People are tired of these ridiculous lies! Please tell the public, and those who lost their loved ones, why 60 days into the downing of the MH-17 Ukraine Government refuses to release the Kiev ATC transcripts. Conversations between them and the Malaysian pilots? If the Ukrainian Putsch is not guilty, why did their secret service (SBU) seize these tapes rather make them available to investigators? Likewise why did the UK Accident Investigation Board, refuse to release to the media and the public, the MH17 CVR transcript which includes last 30 minutes of conversations.
The FDR transcripts they have released are not even nearly as relevant . The current reports by the Dutch on their social media site is that the MH-17 was hit by missile fragments which caused catastrophic decompression followed by disintegration. Even an infant knows that and is only further evidence that NATO and US are covering up for the Ukrainian's role in the downing .
With all due respect, it's time to see the real facts now! And further whywere the SU-25's dispatched near the 777 by the Ukrainian Air Force, other than to create a false Radar Target for the insurgents? If NATO and US would stop supporting Ukraine how long would it take until Ukraine's Junta to close all the Gasprom and Rusneft gas pipelines to Europe?
What other troubles can Ukraine's Fascist Leaders cause NATO and US just to get what the US wants? To all the public!,seriously look into General Breedlove's role into all this , he's the real NATO commander who is steering Rasmussen and the real "Dr.Strangelove ". Anyone who tells him the truth is blocked from his facebook page. UPDATE: Sept. -10- 2014

"What I’ve been told by one source, who has provided accurate information on similar matters in the past, is that U.S. intelligence agencies do have detailed satellite images of the likely missile battery that launched the fateful missile,but the battery appears to have been under the control of Ukrainian government troops dressed in what look like Ukrainian uniforms.
The source said CIA analysts were still not ruling out the possibility that the troops were actually eastern Ukrainian rebels in similar uniforms but the initial assessment was that the troops were Ukrainian soldiers. There also was the suggestion that the soldiers involved were undisciplined and possibly drunk, since the imagery showed what looked like beer bottles scattered around the site, the source said. Instead of pressing for these kinds of details, the U.S. mainstream press has simply passed on the propaganda coming from the Ukrainian government and the U.S. State Department, including hyping the fact that the Buk system is “Russian-made,” a rather meaningless fact that gets endlessly repeated. However, to use the “Russian-made” point to suggest that the Russians must have been involved in the shoot-down is misleading at best and clearly designed to influence ill-informed Americans. As the Post and other news outlets surely know, the Ukrainian military also operates Russian-made military systems, including Buk anti-aircraft batteries, so the manufacturing origin has no probative value here." http://consortiumnews.com/2014/07/20/what-did-us-spy-satellites-see-in-ukraine/
U.S. Satellite Images Show Ukrainian Troops Shooting Down MH17 - Award winning former Associated Press reporter Robert Parry has been told by an intelligence source that the United States is in possession of satellite imagery which shows that Ukrainian troops were responsible for the shoot down of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17. In the absence of any proper investigation, media rhetoric over the last few days has firmly pointed the finger of blame for the downing of the aircraft on Russian-backed Ukrainian rebels, but Parry’s source tells a different story. What I’ve been told by one source, who has provided accurate information on similar matters in the past, is that U.S. intelligence agencies do have detailed satellite images of the likely missile battery that launched the fateful missile, but the battery appears to have been under the control of Ukrainian government troops dressed in what look like Ukrainian uniforms. http://conservativebyte.com/2014/07/u-s-satellite-images-show-ukrainian-troops-shooting-mh17/
