The Polish pilot would adjust the plane to the right position and all the deviations would be corrected . But because he received false information from the controllers hi was reassured that the plane was on the proper altitude and right path .
However, that doesn't excuse him going below 100m when not cleared to do so. As I mentioned earlier - the last "on glidepath" call was made above 100m.
Of course it was a civil flight and the Chicago Convention provisions apply to this crash .
The report authors disagree with you. Care to provide any evidence that it was a civil flight?
I'd honestly expect a lawyer to know the provision in the Aviation Law which clearly states that a flight operated by the Polish Air Force is classed as a military flight.
Delph - but you deny obvious facts , Russians are not immune from committing mistakes and they did a lot of them . Stop this theater with your denial as I will treat you as a "enfant terrible" of this forum .
Answer my question. What justification did the commander have in breaking various minimums - his own, the plane and the one set by ATC?
Look at this report findings -no reaction (for a period of 10 s) to the crew‘s continued descent beyond maximum acceptable deviation (-30‘).
10 seconds? That's nothing in a moment of high stress. Still doesn't excuse the commander going below 100m on the barometric altimeter, does it?
This simply explains, why they descended below the minimum altitude and whose fault it was . 10 seconds at that speed is like ages . So don`t repeat your theories like mantra .
Again, and for the final time. Did they have clearance to go below 100m? No. Therefore - there is no justification for doing so.
Unless they were explicitly cleared to go below 100m (and a "on glidepath" call above 100m does not constitute clearance to land in aviation) - they are strictly responsible for taking that plane below 100m.
I'm still waiting for you to justify why they attempted an illegal landing in the first place.
So, civil or military, it is flue if investigators are not sure. Investigators (Russians) there at the location of incident chosed then it was military flight. It is okay. When it is military flight, the investigation rules change, isn't it. In this case, if there is assassination, it is military crime.. (do you think that Medyedev's pressure on some many generals there has anything to do with that?)
The Russians didn't chose anything - the Polish report makes it clear that an aeroplane operated by the PAF must be military. The law of "Rzeczpospolita Polska" governed the flight - not the rules of the Russian Federation.
