Polish President: Victim of Assassination or Pilot Incompetence
Let me see if I have this right. A Polish pilot is flying the President of Poland, the Polish Army chef, the head of the Polish National Bank and the entire Polish presidential government into Russia. The airport that he is targeting is covered in fog and it is impossible to land the plane. He is told to go to another airport and he has plenty of fuel, but he tries to land the plane, anyway. He fails to land the plane. What does he do? Does he head to the next airport? No! He tries to land the plane in the fog, again. But then, he fails again.
So what does he do next? He circles around the area and attempts to land the plane for the third time. And guess what? He can't land the plane. So at this point, it would be unimaginable that he would try again. But if you guessed that he would fly to the next airport, you would be wrong. The pilot makes a fourth and final attempt. The plane descends into the fog and arrives at its final destination...it millions of pieces. Everyone on board is killed and the Polish people are without a government. Either this man was the worse pilot in history or he was being forced to attempt that landing.
