Be nice - I doubt it was intentional. People often post what they see in the media, and we all know the media doesn't know what they're doing when it comes to aviation.
|Quoting CPH-R (Reply 27):|
it looks like a good chunk of the Polish leadership has just been wiped out. The president, the leader of the opposition, the secretary of state, the leader of the National Security Bureau, the Chief of Staff, and the list goes on.

Quoting FlySSC (Reply 34):
f.pier is right.
132 are now confirmed dead including the President.
We must be careful with the figures nothing confirmed and conflicting reports according to Sky News, so figures not exact yet.

I guess the plane was about 40 years old
