Co-Pilot Intentionally Crashed Plane

I was wrong on an earlier post thinking that he suffered a medical emergency. The authorities are sure that he deliberately crashed the plane. How tragic for everyone on that plane except for the mass murderer.

Audio from the mangled voice recorder of Germanwings Flight 9525 reveals the captain was locked out of the cockpit while the co-pilot appeared to make a deliberate attempt to destroy the plane, Marseille prosecutor Brice Robin said Thursday.

The co-pilot of the doomed Germanwings flight “activated the descent” of the plane when he was alone in the cockpit, Robin said. That can only be done deliberately, he said.

But although it seems the co-pilot wanted to destroy the aircraft, as of now, there’s “nothing to allow us to say that it was a terrorist attack,” he said.

Robin said the co-pilot was a German national and not on any terrorism list. He named him as Andreas Lubitz.
