The New York Times: Poland Blames Crew and Controllers for Fatal Crash

The New York Times: A Polish government report on Friday blamed the poor training of a Polish flight crew, as well as Russian air traffic controllers, for the 2010 crash in Russia that killed President Lech Kaczynski, his wife and 94 others. The report had the immediate effect of forcing out Poland’s defense minister, whose office was responsible for training the pilots. “It seems that the Polish side tried to take a low-key approach, avoiding anything that could be politically inflammatory,” said Jacek Kucharczyk, director of the Institute of Public Affairs, a research group in Warsaw. “Indeed, it was very balanced, unlike the Russian report.” 29/07/2011
