After having one of its flights shot down earlier this month, and another lost at sea earlier this year, Malaysia Airlines has had another scary incident with one of its planes.
When flight MH136 was barreling down the runway at Adelaide Airport in Australia, air traffic control had to tell the pilots to abort the take off because another flight was on a collision course to hit it!
The other flight, a Tiger Airways plane, was at fault, but still, bracing for lift off only to have the plane slam on its brakes instead must be a pretty terrifying experience!

This is so wrong!!
A Ukrainian woman from Torez, who's reportedly been identified as Ekaterina Parkhomenko, allegedly bragged about using stolen mascara from the Malaysia Airlines crash site on Instagram…
And yes, you unfortunately heard us right!
The account where the snap was found has since been deleted, but THIS photo that's been circulating on the web shows all the evidence needed:

There's lucky, and then there's blessed.
In the case of Maarten De Jonge, we don't even know what to call it.
The Dutch pro cyclist is a member of the Terengganu Cycling Team in Malaysia and thus has to take a lot of flights on Malaysia Airlines. These trips should have included both ill-fated flights 370 AND MH17.
But both times, despite having tickets, Maarten

The crash of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 was a horrible tragedy on a global level.
President Barack Obama spoke Friday morning about the crash, accentuating the fact that the entire world was affected.
The President confirmed that at least one US citizen - Quinn Lucas Schansman - was lost in the crash.
Obama also revealed the current belief by American intelligence that Russian-backed separatists in the Ukraine were responsible for the missile that brought down the flight.
Check out the video (above) to find out what the US is doing about the horrific act.

American intelligence has confirmed that the crash of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 in the Ukraine was not an accident.
Though it's still unclear who fired the missile that brought the commercial jet down, NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen has promised a full international investigation.
Vice President Joe Biden issued some remarks as well, given the new information, before a speech to Netroots Nation. He said:

Usually the people you never get to hear from after a tragedy like this are the victims.
But shortly after the crash of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17, one passenger's haunting final social media message became public.
Dutch passenger Cor Pan posted a photo (above) of the plane to his Facebook page just before boarding.

Jason Biggs is in hot water again for his Twitter jokes.
Once again, he's live-tweeting only this time instead of an episode of The Bachelor, he's making light of the tragic crash of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17.
Just after news broke that another Malaysian Airlines flight had gone down in just a few months, Jason tweeted:
