Our South Florida remote uplink studio in Fort Lauderdale covering the latest in a Malaysian Airline plane crash over the Ukraine that killed all 295 people on board. Airline Weekly’s Seth Kaplanwas our studio guest on CCTV, discussing the breaking news of this horrific plane crash and the financial impact of this crash. Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 was traveling from Amsterdam to Malaysia when it went missing near Donetsk in eastern Ukraine. U.S. officials say the aircraft was shot down by a “surface to air missile” fired from territory controlled by Russian-backed separatists in Ukraine. President Obama said that Russian President Vladimir Putin had the power to reduce the violence in the Ukraine, but chose not to do so. Prior to the plane crash, the Obama Administration placed further sanctions against the Russian government for its role in the current conflict in Ukraine. One American was among those killed in the crash.
