GILZE-RIJEN, Netherlands – A partial reconstruction of a Malaysia Airlines jet made of wreckage found strewn across eastern Ukraine told the graphic story of its violent last moments after being hit by a surface-to-air missile.

Dutch-led air crash investigators concluded some of the 298 people on board may have known for up to 90 seconds after the Russian-made BUK missile ripped into the left side of the cockpit that they were about to die.

“The forward section of the aircraft was penetrated by hundreds of high-energy objects coming from the warhead,” said the report released Tuesday by the Dutch Safety Board concluding a 15-month investigation.

“As a result of the impact and the subsequent blast, the three crew members in the cockpit were killed immediately and the aeroplane broke up in the air.”
