    From what I've been hearing the missile system
    had a "Manual/Auto" Mode to it and it somehow
    was left in Auto so it locked onto the plane and
    shot it down.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    What a surprise. Russian-built... based on an outmoded 70's-idea that humans are integral to the system's operational-status. (you can't give medals to a machine)
