Germanwings crash may have been a ‘deliberate, suicidal choice’


EXPERTS fear that the recent Gemanwings crash might have been a ‘delibrate, suicidal choice’ on the part of the pilot.PlaneCrash

The fact that the Barcelona-Dusseldorf flight descended in an 11-minute gentle downward trajectory must have been a deliberate choice from the pilot, say French aviation experts.

The recent revelation that one of the two pilots was locked out of the cockpit points to either a mishap regarding the other pilot – either suicide or illness.

Neither pilot has been named, but it has been revealed that they both trained at the Lufthansa flight training school in Bremen.

Specialists doubt illness was the reason since the gentle downward trajectory the plane traced before crashing into the French alps is indicative of a conscious decision.

The black box recording is well-preserved and after a normal start to the flight, there is no more conversation once the door has opened and closed.

The remaining pilot would have been the only person able to deny entry to his or her co-pilot entry which points to either a loss of consciousness or decision to bar entry.

An Air France pilot has suggested an alternative argument that the aircraft suffered a violent loss of cabin pressure, knocking out the pilot and jamming the cockpit entry door.

This argument, however, does not account for the 11-minute descent of the aircraft and its 150 passengers and crew, none of whom survived.
