The BBC on the crash that killed Polish President Lech Kaczynski:
“The crew was
aware of the inevitability of the coming catastrophe, if only due to the
plane shaking after the wings hit the trees – which we are certain
Col Zbigniew Rzepa, a Polish military prosecutor, said
the pilots had been aware of the imminent crash as the last seconds of
the voice recordings “were dramatic”.
Dramatic, but not yet revealed. Russian aviation officials also now say the plane “only tried to land once – not up to four times as previously reported.”
