188 Downing of the MH 17

The possibility of the MH 17 flight having been shot down by a ground-to-air missile was discussed by experts from the AAF (Federal Aviation Administration), the FBI, the Air Line Pilots Association, as well as the air traffic and operational officers.  They unanimously agreed that no proof of  anti- aircraft missile use has been provided to the public.
It is highly unlikely that the launch of such a missile would have gone unnoticed in the area, since the smoke trail left by the rocket in the air would have been witnessed and filmed by thousands of people. Virtually everyone these days carries a cell phone or i-pod.
One of the things settled on is that in the middle of the day, and if  indeed this were a Buk missile, the contrail would have been seen for 50 miles (80 Kms). The contrail itself would have been photographed by thousands of people and it would have been in minutes on Instagram, on Twitter and all over YouTube and none saw it ? You cannot fire a missile on a flat area in the middle of the day leaving a vapour trail into the air and no one has seen it.
There is no reliable information whatever, supporting that it was a Buk missile fired by either Russia or the Ukraine !
Besides a vapour trail being visible for a long time from great distances, would have located accurately the location from where the missile was launched, so it is highly unlikely that any of the two suspects - Russia and Ukraine - for that matter would have been so stupid to have used a Buk missile. 
Also in the extremely unlikely event that a Buk missile was fired with its distinctive vapour trail, it would most certainly have been mentioned in the Preliminary Report published last year by the Dutch Investigation Team.
However, this Preliminary report could also have reported that no condensation trail had been observed and one may wonder WHY ? To deliberately continue the controversy ?

PS.  Further down there is video footage of the launching of a Buk missile
