He left the airport of Barcelona-El Prat at 10:01 (CET) to Dusseldorf International Airport with 144 passengers, 2 pilots and 4 crew members. It crashed in the mountains of Estrop, in the French Alps of Provence, near the town of Barcelonnette. This is the worst catastrophe in European aviation in five years and the first casualty of a line of low cost Europea.3 Union in French and German authorities, and a spokesman for Germanwings have indicated that the fall of the aircraft was intentional.
In the morning of the 26th of March, the German, Spanish and French authorities announced that according to recordings of the black boxes recovered the previous day, the co-pilot (Andreas Lubitz) 27-year-old crashed the device voluntarily, because his emotional state of depression. The pilot gave the controls while going to the bathroom, when he returned, the co-pilot did not open the cab door (which can be opened only from the inside because of regulations after the attacks of September 11, 2001) and did not answer calls made from the control tower. Passengers were not aware of their situation until a few seconds before impact, when some screams were recorded by the passage.
This type of accidents are very badly because it's a lost of a high number of people, and specially this accident because it was the co-pilot that make crashed the plane because he was depressant. When this happend I always think how this can happend, because the pilots must pass some pshycological exams.
The reason why I chose this new is because This is the same journey if fly to germany every year, and this affects we because maybe I could have been inside this plane.
