Increasing Details On Polish Plane Crash That Killed President, 90 Others
May 19, 2010
Poland (ChattahBox) – The ongoing investigation into the plane crash that killed 91 people – including Polish President Lech Kaczynski – is continuing to give information on how the tragic accident might have been avoided.
The newest information suggests that several people were in the cockpit that were not staff members on the plane. One has been identified, and while the identity has not been released, it was not Kaczynski.
This adds to an already troubling picture, that showed a crew that had only been formed a few days previously, without the proper emergency or flight training. They had been flying in horrible weather, and had been warned repeatedly not to take off.
The plane’s engines and other functions were working up until the last moment, when the plane collided with the ground. Equipment malfunction has been ruled out as a possibility of cause.
As for the people in the cockpit, it is not known who they all were, or how many there were.
“The voice of one of them has been identified exactly, the voice of the other, or the others, will require additional information from the Polish side,” Tatyana Anodinam the inter-state air committee head explained.
