So how many Tupolevs will they need to crash into the birch trees... before they figure out that is a bad landing strategy?

Maybe someone should explain to them what runways are for.

That could be pretty difficult.
Vodkas are preferred instead.

Maybe the Russian airtower should not have told them they were "On Course" right before the crash.

Using your logic: Maybe someone should explain Americans that river Hudson isn't a runway. But that could prove impossible-they couldn't even figure out when Sacha Coren was making idiots out of them.

Greetings from Poland, land of terrible pilot's who saved the UK.

Yes that's the right thing to point out. Also: Russian airtower consulted gen. mjr Wladimir Benediktov in Moscow right before the crash. The question is: What on Earth has gen. Benediktov had to do with that. Why was he decisive if he wasn't present in Smolensk at all?
