2010 Polish Air Force Tu-154 crash

On 10 April 2010, a Tupolev Tu-154M aircraft of the Polish 36th Special Aviation Regiment crashed near Smolensk-North air base, just north of Smolensk, Russia, killing the President of Poland Lech Kaczyński and other Polish officials, including the chief of staff and senior military officers, the central bank governor, deputy foreign minister and dignitaries in the government, vice-speakers and members of the upper and lower houses of the parliament and senior members of clergy of various denominations, on their way to mark the 70th anniversary of the Katyn massacre.

The cause of the crash is currently under investigation, it was reported that the pilot attempted four times to land in heavy fog, ignoring the advice of the ground control to divert to a safer airport in Minsk or Moscow. On the fourth attempt the plane struck trees 1.5 kilometres (0.9 mi) from the airfield and smashed into pieces across the wooded area. All 96 people aboard died. It was among the biggest disasters in Polish history, and the most deadly aircraft crash since July 2009.
