A crew of nearly 100 would surely have planned their journey in advance. The fact is that fog can be easily negotiated by experienced pilots and they didn't need to rush the plane down.
Landing the plane was not a heroic act when they had a bailout option.
they were late.. google if you don't believe me..
they had a bailout plan but once again, they were late.. it's a bit of a polish trait, albeit not a great one there.
See I knew it!!!!! There's a proof here!
mystery solved. lol
Their survival instincts SURELY would have kicked in.
I find that hard to believe.
you're the one trying to believe conspiracy theories which i have a hard time believing.. most of us are going on some fact here whilst you are going on thin air..
They were clearly alerted by the TAWS system and would have taken evasive action.
you'd think but it's highly probable that they were thinking it's the runway and that they were about to see it.. it's obvious that no one was looking at the instruments and that is what at least a couple of them should have been concentrating on.. not what's outside the windows.. this was not a visual landing..
All that aside, they apparently weren't even flying the plane...
it sure flew itself in the ground, didn't it.. :(
If they weren't flying the plane, what were they doing?
gawking out the portals man...
yeah, just read seanus' post and skip the rest.. lol
Where were the lights and the directions in? Letting themselves die? Are you implying that this was a suicide mission? Did they or did they not have time for evasive maneuvers?
are you freaking kidding me??? how many times do we all have to say that there was fog and their evasive maneuvers came a bit late.. about the time when they said Kuuuuuuuuurwa!!.. can't you freaking read??? seriously man..
And what could the Russian authorities have done as an emergency measure?
what did you want them to do? they told the pilots that the other planes diverted, that the fog was thick.. did you want them to beam someone on board to land the plane for the polaks? dude.. wtf???
This is looking more and more like sloppy flying.
i've been saying from the start that is exactly what it looked like..
Can you prove the authenticity of those transcripts? I certainly can't.
can you prove they aren't? how old are you seanus? seriously dude.. drink a beer and spank the monkey or something.. fcuk..
It's not really all that surprising that they killed themselves. All it takes is someone calling out radar altimeter readings on a non precision approach...
exactly but some can't see what is in plain view..
They killed themselves? Again you are implying suicide.
fcuk dude.. if sloppy work = suicide then yes..
Well, where there is a will, there is a way and I can't believed they lacked the will.
they didn't, they lacked the way.. jeeez
Nooo certainly not...i have the greatest respect for Polish pilots , some of my friends are Polish military pilots...But i just wonder if there is something wrong with the way they are trained or the rules for flying in dodgy conditions...
Its because i have Polish friends who fly that i worry that there is something wrong with the system...!
pressure by this "precious" cargo, maybe? seems to be one thing in common with all these tragedies, no?
