Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I haven't seen this mentioned in the Western media:

After the death of Polish President Lech Kaczynski journalists drew attention to several facts that preceded the current disaster. In particular, in January 2008, tragedy struck when the military transport aircraft CASA-295M with the high command of the Polish Air Force crashed near the city of Szczecin. The plane crashed while landing, falling from a height of 200 meters. It caught fire in the woods about 800 meters from the aerodrome. Passengers of the plane were the participants of the annual conference on aviation safety. [!] Moreover, the pilot of the CASA-295M made several attempts to land in difficult weather conditions. Evidently, no conclusions were drawn from this tragedy.
