Hope you’re ready -- if other recent crashes are anything to go on -- for wall-to-wall coverage of the downed Malaysian airplane. Crikey’s put together some of the most note-worthy media coverage so far.

In Melbourne, the crash knocked the carbon tax repeal off the front page at the Herald Sun. As the tragedy broke, the Hun began preparing a special late edition, which arrived in the CBD at 9am. It appears to be the only Australian newspaper to have done so.
