It was more than just the President and a few top military officials:
Gen. Franciszek GĄGOR (Chief of General Staff of Polish Armed Forces) Gen. broni Bronisław KWIATKOWSKI (Operational Commander of Polish Armed Forces) Gen. broni pil. Andrzej BŁASIK (Commander of Polish Air Force) Gen. dyw. Tadeusz BUK (Commander of Land Forces) Gen. dyw. Włodzimierz POTASIŃSKI (Commander of Special Forces) Vice Admiral Andrzej KARWETA (Commander of Navy) Gen. bryg. Kazimierz GILARSKI (Commander of Garrison of Warsaw)
Poland has my condolences, losing a great President before the major changes were made.
But I think this tragedy should never have happened. They were flying in an outdated Soviet Tu-154 made in 1962. It was not fitted for bad weather and should not have attempted a forced landing. Real obvious now with whom is at risk.
I hope the new political leaders are chosen for what's best for their country than for their own pockets.
