In a shocking breaking news report,the reason behind the Germanwings crash was the co-pilot (pictured above)who locked his captain out of the cockpit before deliberately crashing into a mountain to 'destroy the plane'..
The revelation was made by French prosecutor Brice Robin who said from data extracted
from the black box voice recorder, 28-year-old German Andreas Lubitz - locked his captain out after the senior officer left the cockpit.
At that point, Lubitz uses the flight managing system to put the plane into a descent, something that can only be done manually - and deliberately.
'The intention was to destroy the plane. Death was instant. The plane hit the mountain at 700km per hour.I don't think that the passengers realised what was happening until the last moments because on the recording you only hear the screams in the final seconds'.Earlier in the flight, Mr Brice said Lubitz's responses, initially courteous, became 'curt' when the captain began the mid-flight briefing on the planned landing of the plane.
The captain - named by local media as German father-of-two Patrick Sonderheimer - then leaves the cockpit but finds he is locked out when he tries to re-enter.
Mr Robin said: 'We hear the pilot asking the co-pilot to take over and we hear the sound of a chair being pushed back and a door closing so we assume that the captain went to the toilet or something.Air Traffic Control at Marseille asks for a distress signal, but there is still no response, says Mr Robin.
'So the plane becomes a priority for a forced landing .Control asks other planes to contact this Airbus and no answer is forthcoming.There are alarm systems which indicate to all those on board the proximity of the ground. Then we hear noises of someone trying to break into the door.The door is reinforced according to international standards.'Mr Robin went on:
'Just before final impact we hear the sound of a first impact. It's believed that the plane may have hit something before the final impact.Referring to Lubitz, Mr Robin said:
'There is no distress signal or Mayday signal. No answer was received despite numerous calls from the tower.'
'He did this for a reason which we don't know why, but we can only deduct that he destroyed this plane.We have asked for information from the German investigation on both his profession and personal background'.There is no reason to suspect a terrorist attack.'
And asked whether he believed the crash that killed 150 people was the result of suicide, he said: 'People who commit suicide usually do so alone... I don't call it a suicide.'
