General died in Polish C-295 crash
A general was among those who died aboard the C-295 crash in Poland.
General Andrzej Andrzejewski (pictured), age 46, had been commender of a tactical aircraft brigade at the Miroslawiec air base where the January 23 tragedy occurred. He was considered an "excellent jet pilot" who survived a 2003 shootdown when the Su-22 bomber he was flying during an exercise was accidently struck by a missile. "I was miraculously saved!" he exclaimed when a helicopter rescued him from the Baltic Sea. "I got a second life!"
