I am not sure if that's the best subforum to post, if Mentors decide it should be somwehere else that's OK with me. It just hit news here and looks interesting. http://www.bpp.com.pl/IMG/katastrofa.jpg This is not a part of an official investigation. Pictures were taken at the airport by a Russian named Siergiej Amielin. Prawidłowa ścieżka podejścia do lądowania - correct approach path. Realny tor lotu Tu-154M - real approach path. Kurs samolotu po kolizji z drzewami - flight path after collision with trees. Green arrows shows the direction in which pictures were taken. Looks like collision with birch visible on 6th picture cut part of the left wing (it has been found separated from the rest), in effect plane turned left and banked (I am not sure if that's the correct word) before crash. And from the way trees are cut it is clear that plane was way too low way too early. Official investigation is going in its own pace. Our officials highly praise openness and cooperation of the Russian side. They are far from reaching any conlusions (nothing unusual). So far they are almost 100% sure it wasn't a plane failure, no traces of fire nor explosion. Black boxes have been found and read.
