The Pres. & first lady were killed in a plane crash in Russia, they are being a little tight lipped about the others on board I believe 89 in all, all perished.

Seems like one tragedy after another--our hearts go out to these people.I know that there must also be positive things going on out there,but,I guess the media feels people won't pay to read or see that stuff :(

I woke up and the sun came up, thats always good news for me.

Russia is saying pilot error, too foggy and they had no clearance to land.

Believe it or not somedays as of late I need to be reminded of that :) Is your pup an American Huskey :?: I heard that report & was surprised that a pilot had that much leeway--being the tower is on the ground---there has to be some kind of a deep seated plot behind this one--& if not I'm sure someone will come up w/one :(

Sad for all that died. Sad day for Poland. That plane was 26 years old. It has a terrible crash record. You have to wonder why they even flew there top government people in it.

Oh, I can't contain my cynical conspiracy mindedness anymore. I recently read an article about how important the Pols are to the US. How they work with the US, they were getting hardware from us and more. Didn't they agree to a ABM site when we had GW as prez? OB signed the new treaty this week with the Russians. Their "Air Force One" was a Russian made jet, crashed in western Russia. In the fog.

I'm thinking real hard... :?

they didnt and dont have the funds for any type of aircraft like we do. this flight was just 1 hr and 30 min . they were warned to defer to minsk three times!! he came in with the wing tip down and wacked the trees. then it blew apart. 400 yards from the tarmac......


definite errors include: 1. not checking local weather before takeoff?? 2. failure to heed towers recomendation to divert??? 3. not arriving a bit eariler so as to be able to divert?? 4. upgrading plane? 5. taking two separate plane so as to not have everyone in one vessel?

alas it is a human mistake. one which cost too many lives and has a severely tragic effect on the families and the whole nation and even the world.... :( ;)

Ninety-seven people were killed including the president's wife, the deputy parliament speaker, the deputy foreign minister and the head of the National Bank of Poland.


"The entire top military brass, including the chief of defense and all the services, were on the plane," said Tomas Valasek, of the Center for European Reform. "If that is true, then you're looking at a situation, in effect, of the decapitation of the military services."


Among the military leaders confirmed dead are Aleksander Szczyglo, head of the National Security Office, Gen. Franciszek Gagor, head of the army chief of staff and Bishop Tadeusz Ploski, an army chaplain.



Seems there were a number of very important officials on the plane. I don't think having that many heads of Govt. on a single plane to begin with is a very good idea.

Still a tragedy any which way you look at it.

The internet is rife with suspicion. Who would put it past Putin to take out his enemies? I think it was an Electromagnetic Pulse Gun aimed at the plane at the last minute.
