On board was the President and his wife. And Lech Walesa and his wife. WRONG – He was not on the plane. First report I saw on TV said he was.
My prayers are with the people of Poland. What a horrible shock and tragedy.
Apparently, most of the heads of the Polish Government were on this plane.
A Polish government official said the head of the Polish army and the head of the presidential administration were also on board the plane, along with the president’s wife and families of other senior officials.
The Army chief of staff, Gen. Franciszek Gagor, National Bank President Slawomir Skrzypek and Deputy Foreign Minister Andrzej Kremer were on the passenger list.
What in all bad planning disasters happened that THAT many high placed people were all on the same plane?
Dad’s first response was similar to mine, “Russians.” I’ll wait and see.
