    Bill: my understanding is that they were actually flying to that area to celebrate improved relations between Poland and Russia on the anniversary of the slaughter. The irony is biting, and runs deep. Condolences to our Polish brothers and sisters.

    according to news reports in both western and russian media at this point they are calling it human error, reportedly the pilot was attempting to land in heavy fog, down to ground level, and on his fourth attempt he came in too low and hit trees and crashed. its still too early to judge, wait until the investigation is complete.
