Imagine my surprise when I geolocated the video on Jebel al-Noba mountain near Kfariyah, went to Wikimapia and found out that someone from Novosibirsk had already placed a mark there yesterday!

I think you're right Ilya, as was also discussed by others on Twitter. Panorama is still nifty.

Ilya A.

I strongly disagree that the plane crash site is located in this valley. In the beginning of the video we see a smoke plume far away from the camera, somewhere near to Jebel al-Aqra mountain.

Ilya, there were some quite large forest fires in the region in the last few years
