Detail of Type of Shrapnel That Appears to Have Struck Malaysian Airlines Flight 17.

Note the jagged diamond-shaped metal chunks in the upper frame, and Image I at the bottom center.  These are the same type of shrapnel generated by the blast of a class surface-to-air guided missile, including the SA-11 line, a current (ordnance) suspect in the downing of MH17.  

For more — including images of shrapnel holes in an aircraft panel from the Boeing’s wreckage, & maps, graphics and a fuller explanation — go here.
