I watched a computer animation video about the crash in some Polish news site. Tha plane is crashed in the "Final" before the runway. I don't understand. The plane is simply descend before the runway. This case is very similar than the Slovakian an-24 crashed into the Gergely mountain, near Hejce village, Hungary. They on the runway finel, too. But they have a very strong opposite wind, and they sinking stronger than they expected. That's why they crash into the mountain:
The Hejce crash article
In the President's case, the plane just "land" before the runway in the "final". But I don't understand one thing: Every commercial planes have an ILS (Instrument Landing System). To understand, how does it work the ILS, please look at this web page, and look the two flash animation:
When tha plane is climbing or sinking or sliding left or right, this two lines are shirking on the horizon:
With the ILS, the planes are able to landing in the ZERO visibility weather.
So, the ILS is working, why they land before the runway? Or the plane don't have an ILS, or the international airport don't have an ILS system?

On tv said that the airport in Smoleńsk is actually a primitive and don't have ILS system. It isn't entirely clear what happened and how many was attempts landing. Some say that only 1, and others that 4! Probably 15 minutes before landing, the presidential airplane in the same place had landing a military Ilyushin Il-76. However, due to bad weather wasn't allowed.
But yesterday shown in TV the relationship Polish journalist, eyewitness. He said that the Ilyushin Il-76 made an attempt at landing, which almost ended in disaster. The pilot managed to pick up the plane and fly away but other pilots who have seen this situation were horrified.
If the conditions were so difficult and a few minutes earlier, nearly there crashed a military plane, no one should allow to landing the president plane.
Many Poles believe that this was not an accident but an (russian) attack. What kind of evidence is allegedly on this video. He is already the prosecutor's office.
Wielu Polaków uważa, że to nie był wypadek, lecz (rosyjski) zamach. Na co dowody rzekomo s± na tym filmiku. Zajmuje się tym już prokuratura.
There are many conspiracy theories, because the matter is mysterious.
Jest wiele teorii spiskowych, bo sprawa jest tajemnicza.
For me it was a russian attack...
Według mnie był to rosyjski zamach...
For me it is malevolence of Russian controllers and some mistakes from Polish side. Russia could lost too much in an attack. Don't you realize that something like this could close completely our relations with them or even be over with war? It's too sick for me ...
