Well, That Would Explain It

The Germanwings crash wasn’t an accident. According to the reports now, the co-pilot locked the pilot out and wouldn’t let him back in.

And then dove the plane into the ground.

Randomly. Deliberately

Funny how there’s been a complete embargo on the names of the pilot or co-pilot, isn’t it.

What’s up with that?

UPDATE: now we have a name: Andreas Lubitz

UPDATE the Second: the prosecutor:

We heard the captain ask the co-pilot to take control, then we hear the noise of a seat that goes back and a door open, we can assume he went to relieve himself.
The co-pilot was alone. It is at this moment that the co-pilot manipulates the buttons of flight monitoring system to action the descent of the plane.
The action of this altitude can only be deliberate. We hear the captain then speaks via an interphone to speak to the co-pilot, no response of co-pilot, he taps on door, no response from the co-pilot, all we can hear is the sound of breathing, until impact suggesting the co-pilot was alive until impact.
Air traffic control tried to get through via 7700 but couldn’t get through. Air traffic control even tried to contact other planes to try and contact the plane, but no response.
Alarms sounded to signal to crew the proximity of the ground, then we hear banging of someone trying to break down the door
The pull up alarms to pull the plane up went off.
Just before the final impact one can heard what appears to be the first impact of the plane on a mountain top.
There was no message of distress type or mayday recevied by air traffic control, and no response to all the air traffic controllers.
The interpretation is 48 hours after the crash, I take precautions, but for us investigating…the most plausible and realistic is that the co-pilot by a deliberate decision refused to open the cabin door to the captain and actioned the button ordering the loss of altitude.
There was a deliberate desire to destroy this plane. Apparently the co-pilot was breathing normally. He said absolutely nothing after the captain left the cabin.

There’s going to be a whole lot of digging into this guy’s background.

    How tragic and so senseless… If he wanted to die why not just take his own life? Why kill 150 people? File this under Reason number 97 why I am terrified to fly – being forced to surrender my control to potentially unstable people.

    The. Horror.

    Unfortunately, I’d said to major dad just hours after the crash, because events were SO odd, “What if it were one of the crew?”

    THS, Jim and I said the same thing what if it were a member of the crew.terrible, just terrible

    Terrible. There’s really no way to prevent this type of insanity.

    I take my statement back after having read JeffS’s link.

    What a cowardly asshole. If someone is determined to off themselves, at least make sure no one else will be hurt or involved. This is just awful.
