Cool quiz! This is less well known and I personally only learned about it a few days ago, but there was a plane crash in 2010 that killed Poland's President, the head of the Polish army, the President of Poland's National Bank, and a ton of other government officials (details here). Probably one of the craziest plane crashes that's ever happened.
