Dutch air crash ( not shoot down?) investigators said Tuesday an initial report into what brought down flight MH17 in Ukraine will be released "this week or the next."Without being able to visit the crash site? Really? Not credible.
"We don't know exactly when the interim report will be released but it will be this week or the next," said Sara Vernooij, spokeswoman for the Dutch Safety Board (OVV).
Vernooij stressed the findings will be a "first report, an interim report."
"The final report will be published later, hopefully by the summer of 2015," she told AFP
Air crash investigators returned to The Hague from Ukraine in early August without being able to visit the crash site
Or simply choosing not to visit? Because the parameters were set, the limited search was over and the 'searchers' chose not to go to specific areas of the crash when they could of.
The search for human remains at the MH17 crash site in eastern Ukraine is winding down, with an expectation among the Australian search party here that they will be withdrawn as early as Thursday or Friday.Including this headline
And this timeline?
A day in the search?
-The convoy took all of three hours to cover the 90 kilometres from their base to Rassypnoe on Wednesday morning, where the searchers mustered for a briefing.
-The Australian and Dutch investigators then milled in the street while OSCE conflict monitors went into the village, distributing Russian-language flyers asking for possessions or information about where the possessions might be. After a time, people started to emerge.
-At 2:30pm local time, the convoy was attempting to make its way to the smashed cockpit section of the Boeing 777, but gunfire prevented it from continuing.
-A deal struck with the rebels to allow OSCE conflict monitors to approach villagers with fliers seeking information about the flight produced little for investigators.
-Apart from a few small parts of the aircraft, the only personal item handed in was a small silver necklace which a villager said he had found in his potato patch.
-At 3pm, the convoy was allowed to proceed. But instead of continuing to the cockpit site, the convoy headed north to its base at Soledar.
