Developing… Co-Pilot was German national
From BBC – Germanwings plane crash: Co-pilot ‘wanted to destroy plane’
The co-pilot of the Germanwings plane that crashed into the French Alps on Tuesday appeared to want to “destroy the plane”, French prosecutors said.
Marseille prosecutor Brice Robin, citing information from the “black box” voice recorder, said the co-pilot was alone in the cockpit.
He intentionally started a descent while the pilot was locked out.
Mr Robin said there was “absolute silence in the cockpit” as the pilot fought to re-enter it.
The co-pilot, now named as Andreas Lubitz, was alive until the final impact, the prosecutors added.

The co-pilot, said the prosecutor, is not registered in the German lists of terrorists or suspected.
It’s bizarre, a young man living his dream, offs himself and 150 others.
