I wasn't very up to date with my country's politics, but it's - besides a tragedy for the families - a devastating blow for the future of Poland. The passenger's list holds the most important people of the government, I can't imagine how they will deal with it.

I'm pretty much in shock

Omgosh, I heard about this and knew it was the president and other VIPs, but that list looks extensively senior. I can't believe they were all on the same flight together. Such a risk, really, as you never know, but to put everyone on the same flight. And now it's all being blamed on pilot error too - just horrible and shocking.

*hugs*
