Germanwings flight 4U9525 deliberately flown into mountain, says prosecutor

The co-pilot of the Germanwings plane that crashed in the French Alps on Tuesday, killing 150 people, appears to have deliberately flown it into a mountain after locking the flight commander out of the cockpit.

What is happening to our world these days? People are being gunned down in the streets, in museum,beheaded,butchered etc. But now it's even more deadly with this pilot crashing his plane with 150 people on board. Flying is no longer safe. What's more with MH losing two planes within a year with one MH 317 disappearing into thin air.
Could this Germanwings' pilot be a terrorist? But I read he was a German and did not have links with
any terrorist group. Or was he insane or suicidal? We won't know until the investigation into the crash is completed.
Many will now think that the above could also happen on their flights. You'll never know who are the people piloting your plane, would you? Worst still if the pilots decide to crash their planes into buildings like the ones in New York in 2001.

That is why cabin crew should always be nice to the pilots and not piss them off. They have your miserable lives in their hands literally...

Sounds like suicide and taking everyone else down with him. Brings back memories of MI185 that crashed in Indonesia. There was nothing wrong with the aircraft. The commander was an ex-SAF fighter pilot, who had lost large sums of money in the stock market and more. Temporary insanity is a likely cause.

CC have always been nice to the pilots although there are a few exceptions from both sides. Kindness begets kindess. Respect must always be earned, not demanded.

So Mr Pilot do you mean to say if cc is not nice to the pilots they would crash the planes and killed everyone on board including himself? Stupid idiot!

There was an incident in which the co-pilot had to take over the controls for landing. The commander had abruptly unfastened his harness and told him that he was not able to land. Fortunately, the host country's airport was auto-pilot enabled and hence, the co-pilot was able to land the aircraft safe and sound with no incident.

It was known that the Crew-in-Charge was informed and following a thorough investigation, the commander was served a lifeling ban on flying. He continued as an instructor in the simulator.

Something had gone seriously wrong. From the little known,it certainly bore the trappings of some mental instability or something to do with stress. It would be insane for any pilot to crash the aircraft because of some bad blood amongst crew relations.

What makes you think the first post is from a pilot? Could be a cabin crew as usual stirring shit....but it is true that our lives are in the hands of whoever is in charge of the aircraft..or even in a taxi, bus , train etc... Shows also the stupidity of airport security trying to search for nail clippers and toothpaste carried by the pilots, when they have a big axe in the cockpit, and the biggest weapon at their disposal, ie the aircraft..

Very soon, all crew ie, tech crew and cabin crew will have to go through a brain scan when passing through airport security. A cabin crew went bonkers quite recently,banging on the cockpit door... Hate to think if she was alone in the cockpit with just 1 tech crew inside and decide to use the axe to chop off his head !

Latest update on the Germanwings flight crash. The co-pilot was suffering from depression.

Sometimes depressed cabin crew said...

Everyone suffers from depression at one time or another.... It is a matter of how severe the depression is, and whether you are able to snap out of it.. Basic eg, if you lose a loved one, won't you be depressed for a certain period of time? Was LKY not depressed when his wife was bed- ridden and later passed away ? i get depressed when we don't make taxi or don't make location meal allowance... because I lose money..

Germanwings can expect a class action lawsuit from paxs as well as its own pilots. One of our own pilots had lost a huge sum of money gambling and and other so-called high flying activities. He was riding high on huge gains and did not know when to stop. It was widely rumoured that he had to sell off his landed home and more to pay off his debts.

One day, his obituary appeared in the newspaper. Incidentally, he was never grounded for his condition, and we should be thankful that nothing adverse ever came from him.

According to the news, the copilot was a muslim convert...

Tech Crew said...

It is even more dangerous to have a cabin crew alone in the cockpit with just 1 pilot... I do have doubts about the mental condition and mental stability of some of our cabin crew...Like the saying goes, 'who is guarding the guards ?' Also our young stupid and chee hong fos might be distracted from doing their job and engage in nonsense talk with the sweet young things when the captain is away... Likewise for the desperate old cock and chee hong captain...

The pilot who committed suicide did the most honourable thing by jumping down from a high rise building, instead of taking other innocent lives with him.... No reason for grounding a crew for their personal habits,whether it is smoking, drinking, gambling, womanising, gay activities,sodomy etc.. unless it interferes with their job.. He was to my knowledge always professional in his flying job...

It sounds like the buck is going to passed again. Whenever a problem surfaces, it will be discussed and will eventually devolve to a third party. I can remember many years ago when the Company went on a water saving drive on its aircraft fleet.

Water constitiuted the heaviest weight that the aircrat carries. It is heavier than oil. Here was how it worked. Just before descent, the flight engineer will call Door2L to speak to the CC. He needs to know the water level on the meter. The Crew concerned will then read the meter and then relay the level reading to him.

Another new protocol then came into being. This required the CC to check the cockpit to see if they are awake, at regular intervals. How come that CC are not carried on the cargo long haul flights? Pilots are able to help themselves to food and drinks, heat up meals and tend to themselves all these years???

This pilot was also in the bad books of many other staff in Flight Ops. He had a reputation for being an obsessive miser, sacarstic, mean and had made enemies. He was a Malaysian, a one-time President of ALPA-S and one of his brothers was on the payroll Of MAS Flight Ops.

His widow's name was not in his obituary. Many of our young FSS was on his list of admirers. The writer ought to do his homework carefully. He had not done anyone a favour by taking his own life. Singapore can do without these hybrids who walk across the Causeway and flourish on the crest of the rising SGD. Whenever the MYR devalues, it a pay rise for them.
