    Very interesting. Polish media has published the recordings from flight deck of the crashed president plane.
    http://slimak.onet.pl/_m/TVN/tvn24/stenogram.pdf (41 pages PDF)
    All is in Russian and Polish.
    It's quite obvious that it's 100% pilot error. The pilots received messages from tower and another pilot that visibility was very very very poor.
    They ignored the warnings and decided to make a try to land.
    First alarm in cockpit sounded 59 seconds before crash and was repeated about 12-15 times and ignored by the pilots every time.
    Last word before crash was "kurwaaaaaa"

    Flight crew pressured to land: crash report, on POL gov. crasch

    Hi

    The crew in an air crash that killed the Polish president were under intense "psychological pressure" to land the plane so as not to anger him, according to a damning Russian report blaming pilot error for the tragedy. Russia's Interstate Aviation Committee quoted the aircraft's navigator as saying "he'll get mad," if the aircraft aborted its attempt to land at Smolensk.

    Poland: Russia must take Smolensk crash responsibility, too

    Hi

    The Polish government has indicated that the Russian claim that the air disaster in Smolensk last April was “pilot error” is not the whole story and that Russian air traffic controllers must take some of the blame, too.

    Poland’s tragedy: one year on

    Hi
    And RIP for the Poland country and people

    The air disaster that killed Poland’s president and many of the country’s leading figures in April 2010 is now a source of national division rather than unity, says Adam Szostkiewicz.
