Lech Kaczynski's alternate jet goes on the block

MOSCOW. August 2. KAZINFORM  Poland will sell off three planes owned by the government, including a jet of the same model as the one that crashed in April, 2010 killing Polish President Lech Kaczynski and 88 other top officials, Poland's Dziennik Gazeta Prawna reported on Thursday, RIA Novosti informed.

The Tu-154 and two Yak-40s will be sold off in one lot, together with a set of spare parts.

The Tu-154 will continue to be held by the Polish Prosecutor's Office until the investigation into the causes of Kaczynski's plane crash is completed.

All 96 people onboard the April 10 flight to Smolensk for the 70th anniversary of the World War II Katyn massacre perished when the Russian-built Tu-154 crashed due to poor visibility.
