Polish President Lech Kaczynsk died in a plane crash before landing in western Russia due to a thick fog. According to the news, there were no survivors among the passengers. Polish President Lech Kaczynski was also with his wife and other top officials of the Poland. This is indeed a tragic event for the entire country of Poland.
One angle that investigators' are looking as cause of the plane crash was the Tu-154 age. According to source, the TU-154 was already 20 years of age and officials discussed for the replacement of the said plane. But due to lack of funds it wasn't materialized.
I wish to extend my condolence to the family and the entire country of Poland.
