With the threat of U.S. strikes, and fevered talk of war, the country was on high alert. But when it comes to flying over conflict zones, it turns out everyone’s in charge and no one’s in charge.

There have been attempts to clarify and update the rules of air traffic safety. See the report that followed the MH17 crash:
