Another curiosity? I have seen reported a number of times.
NO journalist on the plane with these vip's when they left Poland?
Instead they all went on another plane that preceded this one? That really strikes me as odd.
Polish opposition party demands international investigation into plane crash
Reason given: Failure of the Polish and Russian government to address compelling new evidence suggesting that the plane crash killing President Lech Kaczynski and top military and civilians leaders was engineered.
-Poland's chief prosecutor Andrzej Seremet said earlier this week that Polish prosecutors would postpone revealing the contents of the black boxes.
-It was revealed that agents belonging to the Polish secret service raided the flats and houses of victims three hours after the crash, removing computers and documents.
-A Polish general called for Defense Minister Bogdan Klich to resign after evidence emerged that Bogdan was not seeking to conduct a proper investigation.
-An aviation official scouring the crash site in Russia for crucial scientific evidence was told by Bogdan he did not require an interpreter, and was expected to pay the costs of his investigation out of his own pocket.-Time discrepancies? The official account of the time point at which the crash occurred has been called into question.
*The Presidential plane was scheduled to arrive at 8:25 at Smolensk military airport after a flight lasting 62 minutes from Warsaw's Fredrik Chopin Airport.
*The official version has the Presidential plane crashed in Smolensk military airport at 8.56 am CET or 10.56 Moscow Times
*But a journalist from "Polsat News" reported the crash to his station 10 minute earlier
(I am unsure, ten minutes earlier then which time is being referenced here? Official or scheduled arrival )
*Evidence that the crash occurred earlier also comes from a report that the transmission of power from an electricity pylon close to the crash scene, and which was seen to be damaged in photos, was interrupted at 8:41
