    You can find a satellite image of the crash site http://bi.gazeta.pl/im/3/7765/m7765863.jpg
    It's located about 200m away from the runway http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&sour...42787&t=h&z=15

    The plane Obama flies on doesn't have ADS-B.
    The Mode-S code & Call sign will still show up on the SBS1/RB software.

    Question

    Is it generally possible to track back the real-time flight of PAF101 via FlightRadar or similar service?
    I'm asking because there are numerous questions arising from the duration of the flight (which crashed 0656 GMT) but no certainty when flight began (0524-0600 GMT?).
    Hence did they have really time to fulfill all necessary landing procedures, or tried to land "quickly"?
    Thanks in advance.

    EU urged to intervene in Polish air crash 'cover up'

    A public hearing in parliament was told that 'serious doubts' exist about the result of an investigation into the Polish plane crash in 2010 which killed the country's president.

    Some 96 Poles were killed in the plane crash Smolensk in Russia, including Polish president Lech Kaczynski, two years ago this April.

    The packed hearing on Wednesday was told that the crash "did not have the right to occur".

    A report by the Poland law and justice delegation in parliament which was circulated at the event said, "Government aircrafts of civilised countries, flown by well trained pilots used to difficult conditions do not normally crash. We must know how this one did."

    The hearing, organised by the European Conservatives and Reformists group, was told that "with the second anniversary of the crash approaching it can be safely concluded that both Russian and Polish governmental reports have neglected to investigate the circumstances of the crash."
