The co-pilot of Germanwings Flight 9525 appears to have deliberately crashed the plane after he was left alone in the cockpit, according to a French prosecutor.
The captain was intentionally locked outside minutes before the A320 crashed into an alpine mountain ridge, French Prosecutor Brice Robin said Thursday. Co-pilot Andreas Lubitz, a 28-year-old German national, was silent throughout the planes descent and was alive at the point of impact, according to the prosecutor.
Mr. Robins conclusions are drawn from the planes cockpit voice recorder, recovered at the crash site in the French Alps late Tuesday and analyzed by French accident investigators on Wednesday.
The recording contains screams believed to be from passengers, once they recognized the plane was crashing.
Investigators are now exploring why Flight 9525 went into its unauthorized descent from its 38,000-foot cruising altitude with one crew member absent. The descent led to the crash about 10 minutes later.
French air accident investigators said on Wednesday they extracted information from the jets cockpit voice recorder. The recording contained voices and other sounds, said Rémi Jouty, director of Frances aviation accident investigation office, which is leading the probe. He added that there was no explanation yet for why the plane went down.

This is horrifying. I have no words. Those poor people.
WTH? For sure it was some kind of suicide.
:: or he got outed and was about to lose his job ::
Lose his job...?...for being a sodomite? Shirley, you jest.
Dude, you know that ain’t true given the EuroWeenie ethos. If anything, he would have been summarily advanced according to his “cultural bravery”.
Bad = bath
Kreuz = cross
nach = after
It may mean that after you crossed the river there you need a bath?.............
He has to say that at this time until he has absolute proof, other wise he may endanger his case if it proves to be a conspiratorial mass murder. And ‘accomplices’ could then claim he did it all by himself without any input on their part........................
That one looks legit. It has a picture of a Beach Bonanza. Only a pilot would know that is the Lufthansa academy training aircraft.
‘ceptin’ that kreutz refers to the cross of crucifiction, not a physical act of “crossing” some geological feature; noun v. verb, in this case.
He can be heard breathing, but what is the evidence he was awake and aware of what he was doing? Can he be heard moving around, touching things? Plus does the door lock itself?
No guten guten from Baden Baden................
My guess- Homo who recently found out he has AIDS and can’t pass his upcoming flight physical, which means his flying career is over. Flying is everything to him. He decides to go full tilt Raging Drama Queen and take out everyone with him.
Interesting...but hard to tell what it means..could be French translators missing context..or much more..that was the trigger moment..
It has emerged that one of the pilots on board the German Wings airbus was locked out of the cockpit. Here we examine how this could have happened and why safety procedures seem to have failed.
The co-pilot needed to trigger a switch to keep the pilot out, bypassing the pilot's keypad access.
Kreuz is used for Autobahn Interchanges as well..............what we call ‘cloverleafs’...............
We’d be bigots for even thinking it was a muslim!

Possibly but why would he not simply rent a Piper and drive that into the ground? AIDS is, in the end, a personal “weapon” that does not require a multitude of lives lost to make a statement.
My money is still on the possibility that the other crew member in the cockpit was found to be “involved” with the other-member’s significant other (wife, concubine, boytoy, etc. - and I’m gonna stick with the heterosexual angle for now).
That would explain locking the crew-member out.
I’m no doctor but I am SURE there are many “events” that do not disrupt the breathing pattern that much.
Nor, for that matter, do we know if it is absolutely clear. Usually the investigators have to piddle with the sound to pick out things like that.
This is mostly suspicious, but there IS still a possibility this is a horrible accident. I cannot believe they are mouthing off about this so soon. I can’t believe they have this much information so soon. It’s never this easy.
