A Twitter account catering to aviation officials posted an image Thursday afternoon appearing to depict flights move away from Ukrainian airspace following the crash of MH17.

The image was taken from Flight Radar 24, according to the tweet.

In the wake of news that the aircraft was downed with a surface-to-air missile, major airlines have announced that they will no longer fly through Ukrainian airspace.
