    Default Germanwings Passenger Plane Crashes in France: Officials

    A passenger plane has crashed in the French Alps, officials told NBC News.

    French president Francois Hollande confirmed the accident near the town of Digne, saying that the wreckage of the plane is in a hard-to-reach area.

    "It's a tragedy," he said in a statement expressing sympathies with those affected.

    German air traffic control spokesman Axel Raab confirmed that a Germanwings A320 traveling from Barcelona to Dusseldorf had gone down. He was not able to provide more details.

    The local La Provence newspaper said the flight was carrying 142 passengers, two pilots and four cabin crew, citing aviation officials, according to Reuters.

    Germanwings is a no-frills short-haul European carrier owned by German flag-carrier, Lufthansa. The airline said it was aware of the reports but did not have its own confirmed information. Airbus also said it was aware of the reports and that "all our efforts are going toward assisting the situation."

    According to flight tracking website Flightradar24, the aircraft involved was a 24-year-old plane that previously flew with Lufthansa.

    The German passenger jet that crashed in the French Alps on Tuesday morning, likely killing all 150 people aboard, had gone into an 8-minute descent before crashing, the airline's CEO says. Germanwings flight 4U 9525 had just reached its cruising elevation, en route from Barcelona to Dusseldorf, when it went into a long descent and crashed near Digne at 11:20 a.m. local time, the Lufthansa-owned budget airline's CEO said. It's not clear what caused the descent or crash. Debris from the plane has been found, but because of the remote location in the mountains, search and rescue operations were expected to be long and arduous. The plane, a 24-year-old Airbus A320, was carrying 144 passengers — mostly German and Spanish — and six crew members. Sixteen students and two teachers from a German high school were booked on the flight, but it has not yet been confirmed if the group made it on board. German Chancellor Angela Merkel called the crash "harrowing news," and French President Francois Hollande said there were likely "no survivors."

    Eight minute descent. Wow. That really sucks.

    It's really amazing it doesn't happen more often.

    Any plane crash is horrific and truly sad, but having been a Düsseldorfer for nearly seven years now, this feels even worse than normal. Add the fact that I used to live in BCN, and I have one of those weird connected feelings. I don't even want to imagine that eight minutes.

    Plane crashes are so tragic and really affect me.

    One the one hand, flying is a safe form of travel, but if something goes wrong....It's almost certain death. At least one has a chance of survival in a car, bus, or train wreck.

    My heart goes out to the lives lost and their families.

    Germanwings Pilot Was Locked Out of Cockpit Before Crash in France

    A French rescue worker on Wednesday near the crash site of a Germanwings jet.

    PARIS — As officials struggled Wednesday to explain why a jet with 150 people on board crashed in relatively clear skies, an investigator said evidence from a cockpit voice recorder indicated one pilot left the cockpit before the plane’s descent and was unable to get back in.

    A senior military official involved in the investigation described “very smooth, very cool” conversation between the pilots during the early part of the flight from Barcelona to Düsseldorf. Then the audio indicated that one of the pilots left the cockpit and could not re-enter.

    “The guy outside is knocking lightly on the door and there is no answer,” the investigator said. “And then he hits the door stronger and no answer. There is never an answer.”

    He said, “You can hear he is trying to smash the door down.”

    Pilots 'involved in violent struggle before crash'

    http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news...pdates-5401806


    The investigation has now turned into a full-blown criminal enquiry today following revelations of a violent struggle on board, reports from France suggest.

    Four specialists from Interpol have joined senior French detectives trying to work out why one of the pilots on the plane locked himself into the cockpit on Tuesday morning.

    There were two airmen on board and they are said to have been fighting to open and close the cockpit door.

    A chair is at one stage used to block the door, as the pilots shouted at each other in German, before the one outside ‘tried to smash the door down’.

    Cockpit recordings recovered from the crash site indicated one of the seats was pushed back and the door opened and closed, followed by the sound of knocking on the flight, which had been on its way from Barcelona in Spain to Dusseldorf in Germany.

    Bullshit.

    People lost their lives for nothing.

    A squabble between pilots?

    Truly tragic.

    Default BBC: Co-pilot 'wanted to destroy plane'

    CBS NEWS:

    French prosecutor Brice Robin said in Marseille on Thursday that the co-pilot, who has not yet been officially identified, requested control of the aircraft about 20 minutes into the flight. The pilot then left the cockpit, leaving the co-pilot in full control of the plane.

    Then, according to Robin, the co-pilot "starts the descent of the plane." He said the co-pilot could only have taken the action "voluntarily," seemingly ruling out dysfunction of the Airbus' automated flight operations systems.

    If the guy is named is "Muhammad Ali Shaheer" can we finally start using the words "Muslim Extremists"?

    If the guy had a history of mental illness, can we start not letting guys with known emotional problems get in the cockpit of airplanes?

    Seems like lately it is either one or the other.
