International Task Force Meets to Devise Rules for Flights Over Conflict Zones

Roll Call’s “The Container” asks: How can another war-related air catastrophe such as the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH 17 be averted?

A task force of 59 government and industry experts convened by the International Civil Aviation Organization is trying to answer that question at a two-day meeting that started Thursday at ICAO’s Montreal headquarters.

The group is examining how governments and international agencies can circulate intelligence about threats such as the surface-to-air missile that destroyed the Malaysia Airlines plane over Ukraine on July 17.
