A Singapore Airlines passenger plane flying from Copenhagen to Singapore was only 30km away when Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 was  shot down in Ukraine on Thursday.

DR reports that the live flight tracker Flightradar24.com apparently shows that flight SQ351/SIA351 departed from Copenhagen Airport at 12.45pm after a 15-minute delay and arrived in Singapore 12 hours later.
