Earlier on Tuesday, 24th March 2015, the Germanwings Flight 4U 9525 was crashed in southern France with 150 people on board. The plane had been en route to Dusseldorf from Barcelona.
These excerpts are from the French officials who have revealed that the co-pilot deliberately destroyed the plane. It was an intentional act they say when the pilot was out of the cockpit. It has been confirmed that the information that has been leaked out has been as a result of tests of ‘black box’ recording.
The whole act takes place just when the pilot is out of the cockpit and the co-pilot finding himself alone, presses the button that puts the plane in the descent action. Such action only occurs when done deliberately. Meanwhile, the pilot is said to have knocked on the cabin door several times, but there was no answer.
The co-pilot – Andreas Lubitz, a young man of 28, became a pilot in 2008. He took a break of 6 years and later took to flying. Although most of his colleagues and friends thought him to he fit and healthy person who loved his job and flying, something strange about him is now gathering news. What he did was a deliberate move to crash the plane with all the 150 passengers on board.
The chief executive of Germanwings, Thomas Winkelmann, has confirmed that the flight had 72 German passengers and those dead has 51 Spanish passengers. The others were from different countries like Denmark, U.S, Britain, Argentina, Colombia, Israel, Australia, Netherlands, Venezuela and Japan.
It still has to be clear as to why Mr. Lubitz might have crashed the aircraft. It seems that even the air traffic controllers tried to contact, but there was no response. No passenger conveyed any signal of distress either.
