A mock-up of the plane that crashed in Smolensk was unveiled this week in the Sanctuary at Kalkow-Godow. The 10m long model is painted in the colours of the presidential plane and features various figures that died in the tragedy painted in the windows along the fuselage. Former President Lech Kaczynski and his wife appear in the doorway of the plane.
