The tragedy of the Iryda plane through the eyes of the designer.
The crash of PZL I-22 Iryda No.ANA 02-03, on January 24, 1996.
It has been 21 years since the accident of Iryda, with which the destruction of the aviation industry began. I wrote a few topics about it in the previous years. However, this topic will shock the public opinion for a long time, because what was done was incredibly stupid.
Bringing up the topic of Iryda again encouraged me with the fact that one of the designers from Mielec, M.Sc. Stanisław Śmist sent me some of his memoirs, giving me permission for their publication. He took part in the Iryda Aircraft Accident Investigation Commission, where two pilots were killed in Dęblin in January 1996. Writing his memoirs, he described in detail the course of that commission.
But the Commission's findings are not factually correct. These facts will not bring the pilots back to life, but the lies helped to destroy the Polish Aviation Industry.
