A report into the MH17 air crash will show that the plane was hit by a warhead of the type used on a Buk missile system, ITV News understands.
It is understood that the report by Dutch investigators will also show the missile hit above and to the left side of the cockpit, and those on board did not feel anything on its impact.
Buk missiles are developed in Russia, and have allegedly been used by pro-Russian rebels in eastern Ukraine, where the plane came down.
The missile's manufacturer has already challenged investigators' view of events leading to the disaster.
The final report into what caused flight MH17 to crash will be published today.
