Scientific simulations proved that the wing of the Tu-154M plane cuts through the birch tree for every analyzed scenario, without losing its lifting capabilities.

On February 3, 2012 at Saint Paul University in Ottawa an expert panel presented findings from an investigation into the crash of the Polish Governmental Plane. The fatal crash of the Polish Air Force Tupolev TU-154M occurred on April 10, 2010 in Smolensk, Russia. On board were 96 prominent figures from Polish political and public elites, and NATO military.

This is an on-going investigation carried out by the Polish Parliamentary Commission led by Antoni Macierewicz, relying on international experts from USA, Poland, Russia and other countries. The investigation is conducted independently of the two official investigations by the Russian and Polish authorities. The official Russian investigation concluded that the crash was caused by pilots' error and a collision with a birch tree. Final report issued by the Polish authorities is a mere rubber stamp copy of the Russian report. In fact, Macierewicz investigation is checking the validity of the official reports and their conclusions.

Since the first moments after the crash, Russian authorities have been destroying and manipulating vital evidence with a blind approval from the Polish government (see video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nCjSOO... ). The plane wreckage and the original black boxes with recordings of the last minutes of the fatal flight have been withheld by Russia. Forensic autopsies have not been performed, because access to the bodies of the victims had been denied.

The investigators and experts gathered in Ottawa to present their research and findings, which discredit the official reports as false and scientifically invalid.
Professor Wieslaw Binienda, Chairman of the Civil Engineering Department at the University of Akron, Ohio and expert of NASA/Federal Aviation Administration, studied if the birch tree could have broken the wing of the Tu-154 aircraft. He applied the cutting edge NASA aerospace methodology and computing programs. Scientific simulations proved that regardless of the scenario for the contact between the wing and the birch tree, and birch diameter and its density, the wing cut through the birch, without losing its lifting capabilities. His research debunks Russian statements that the piece of the wing, sheared off by the birch at an altitude of 6.5 meters, traveled a distance of 111 meters, through a forested area, before hitting the ground. He determined that this piece could only travel a distance of up to 12 meters.

These video illustrates results of the simulations done by Prof. Binienda.
