Man who lost friends in MH17 crash about to board same flight speaks

Family and friends of the 298 passengers who lost their lives aboard Malaysia Airlines flight 17 are struggling to make sense of the tragedy.

Instead of spending the night with their loved ones, they're left in a state of heartbreak, confused about why the plane was shot down.

At the same time, there was the haunting image of Flight 17 leaving Amsterdam Friday.

A Malaysia spokesperson says the airline has decided to keep the flight number in service, for now.

On Saturday, some Malaysia Airline customers will board in Amsterdam to make that same journey.

One of them is Roger Deslorieux who is OutFront.
