Polish channel claims to have new details from Kaczynski plane black boxes

Polish channel claims to have new details from Kaczynski plane black boxes
Poland's TVN24 news station claims to have obtained unofficial information on new fragments of conversation from the black boxes from the crashed plane of the late Polish President, Lech Kaczynski.


According to the channel, there is a recording of the captain saying “If we [or I] don't land, they'll [or he'll] kill me.” The pronouns are not distinctly heard and it is not clear to what exactly he refers.

The Tu-154 plane crash on April 10 near the Russian city of Smolensk killed 96 people including Lech Kaczyński and his wife. The late president was going to attend ceremonies at the Katyn memorial site where Polish officers were murdered during World War II.
