22. The TU-154M “101” is to land from the easterly direction, known for ravines and trees – these obstacles are not present at the western side of the airfield [customarily used to land aircraft at this airfield]. As it turned out, the navigation systems guiding the planes from the westerly* direction at the Smolensk-Severny airfield, was dismantled in the Fall 2009.
* Another crash “prerequisite” is NOT to let the plane land on Rwy 09 (180 degree opposite direction to Rwy 27) like it should be in headwind that foggy day if all navigation systems had functioned; like the glide path transmitter. http://www.allstar.fiu.edu/aero/ILS.htm
Piotr Bein: Since when pilots look at the ground (ravines) and trees to land a plane at 250 km/h?
As a passenger, I landed many times in complete fog, approaches over uneven terrain — and am still alive.
There is NO RAVINES at Smolensk Severnyj. This misconception came from a graph with distorted vertical scale that makes the light dip before the runway look like a treacherous ‘ravine’ awaiting unaware pilots. As far as I know, pilots navigate descent by the runway elevation when landing in difficult visibility and a few systems incl. automatic beacons home in on the proper elevation. One of the theories in the Polish blogosphere is that beacons have been messed with.
The official reports are laughing stock… e.g. the pilot and his crew were Poland’s best, fluent in Russian and English, knew the plane intimately, landed it before in difficult conditions e.g. in Afghanistan. It was a false flag assassination… possibly with murder of the victims elsewhere a few days before, as postulates a leading independent Polish analyst Krzysztof Cierpisz (Masters degree in aviation).
Unfortunately, like most of the best stuff defying the lame official versions from West and East, the majority of their work is inaccessible for non-Polish speakers.
Björn’s collection above (except InfoWars video) is seemingly from Polish patriotic sources. Don’t be fooled. Such orgs have been set up or high-jacked to conceal the truth and feed Poles’ Russophobia — a prime goal of the J-complex at present, just as Germanophobia was in Communist Poland. Same tribal group at the helm, different hatreds depending on current politics and goals of the J-complex.
The doomedsoldiers material stinks of it, featuring e.g. Antoni Macierewicz (Singer) who is a J-agent planted to misinform, particularly the Catholic majority via church media channels. Macierewicz went to the US Congress or Senate for an indepemdent Smolensk inquiry and asked …Judeocentric Congressmen reponsible for covering up 9/11!!! How stupid (or corrupt or sayanim) could a Polish parliamentarian get?
Poland’s ‘allies” in US, NATO and EU are in the conspiracy… we will not see an honest inquiry. Any independent findings from among Poles will be ridiculed, swept under the carpet. The East collaborated with the West in Smolensk false flag. If not, then Russia is covering up for the perpetrators, for reasons known only to Putin. This has desevedly earned him dismay and dislike (and strengthened Russophobia from the brainwashed sector of the Polish public).
We have to reject official reports, even from Russia, and do it ourselves. The few articles and videos (like above from InfoWars) are too simplistic (and ubelievable compared to MSM-pumped versions) for the foreign audience to get a full picture.
