One Dutch passenger of crashed MH 17 had joked on his Facebook page before boarding the ill-fated flight. Cor Pan, a deceased passenger of MH 17 who was killed among 298 people, had posted the picture of MH 17 and wrote on his Facebook wall, ‘if the plane disappears, this is what it looks like.’

Mr Cor Pan was said to be heading to a beach holiday to Malaysia. The photo was tagged ‘near Schiphol airport’ and appears to have been taken from the gate as passengers waited to board in Amsterdam. The post initially got interesting reactions but when the news about the crash of MH 17 broke, his friends started showing concern and later posted grief messages.

MH 17 Boeing 777 was shot down on Thursday reportedly by pro-Russian separatists of Ukraine causing killing of all 298 passengers and crew on board. Months before this, MH 370 Boeing 777 has gone missing and none has traced it yet.
