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 ?

Just consider the following. Could the Malaysian passenger plane MH 17 indeed have been downed by a Buk missile as suggested by western mainstream news media ? This is highly unlikely for the following reasons. The Russians could indeed have known that the plane was scheduled to leave Amsterdam 'Schiphol' airport at the given time and could have known its scheduled flight path.
However, what the Russians could NOT have known untill the last minutes, is that Kiev Air Control was to instruct the pilots to lower altitude and diverted the plane from its originally scheduled flight path over the east Ukrainian war zone !
That diversion of the flight path must have happened within the last half hour or so, when it showed up on Russian radar. Kiev could have thrown light on that, but remains silent, refusing to release the conversations between ATC and the planes' pilots, as has ben requested by Russia on several occasions. (Also the suddenly 'vanished' Spanish air controller could tell us more )
So the upshot is that it was totally impossible for the Russians to roll in from Russia and in broad daylight a Buk missile unit and make it ready to shoot down the plane within such an extremely short time span.
As I  have said before the ill-fated plane was not downed by a Buk missile. Neither Russia nor the Ukraine would have been so stupid to use a Buk missile, as it would have been too easily detected by its vapour trail and would have betrayed the location of the perpetrator of this crime.
The only credible explanation is that the plane was shot down in the air by jet fighters, as all available evidence and all circumstantial evidence so far is indisputably pointing in that direction.
