Incredible Map Shows Airplanes Getting The Heck Out Of Ukranian Airspace


JUL. 17, 2014, 7:11 PM


On a normal travel day, the airspace over Ukraine is some of the most congested in the world. 

It serves as a major cross roads for flights connecting major hubs in Europe with megacities in Asia.

However, after Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 was reportedly shot down earlier today, most of the world's major airlines have ordered their planes to avoid the area completely.

The above map, which was tweeted by Newsweek, shows Ukranian airspace a few hours after MH17 lost contact with radar.

Two of Europe's largest airlines, Lufthansa and British Airways, have both told Business Insider that they have ordered their planes away from the disputed region.

To avoid the Russian-Ukraine conflict altogether, Lufthansa has specifically ordered their planes to take a southerly route over Romania.

MEXICO CITY — It is not easy for any reporter to cover drug trafficking in Mexico, a country where more than 80 journalists have been shot, stabbed, bludgeoned to death or decapitated since 2006.

But despite the risks, journalist and author Anabel Hernandez not only covers the issue, but also levels accusations of narco corruption in the country’s most powerful institution: the presidency.
