    150 people were killed when a Germanwings plane crashed in the French Alps

    http://mydeathspace.com/article/2015...he_French_Alps

    I've made an article and included the two victims that have been identified so far.

    Very sad. It looks like it almost disintegrated.

    The initial reports before they even reached the crash site were that it was assumed that there were no survivors. I see now why they were so confident. Yikes.

    Ah ha ha! Me, too! I also factor in the demographic of any plane I'm on. Example: Visible priest? I'm not going down that day!

    My cousin is in Europe at the moment and posted this on FB yesterday - he has been interviewed for Aus newspapers etc.


    Feeling grateful, lucky and numb, I have to thank Ana xx . She works for Lufthansa in Oporto. Ana was leaving the office but stopped and checked us in on her mobile phone after trying to do it on their system, she did it out of the kindest of her heart, she was leaving work at the time. Little did she know the decision she made yesterday made such a big difference today. Ana booked us in on German Wings flight travelling from Barcelona to Dusseldorf last night although she doesn't work for them, she went out of her way to help us. Our connecting flight was delayed in Oporto and when we got to Barcelona they didnt want to let us on, if she had not of checked us in we would have been bounced to the German Wings flight that went down this morning. Ana then called the airport, Lufthansa, German wings and contacted us on facebook to see if we were ok, as you can imagine she has been upset all day as she was told we went down on the plane. I didnt find out about this until tonight as I have been at a food show all day. Words can not express how grateful I am for her actions, she is an amazing person.

    That's really scary Liv. I'm glad your cousin is okay.

    They are reporting here that it the plane nose dived for 8 minutes before crashing. It's unimaginable what those people might have gone through.

    8 minutes would seem like an eternity. I wonder if they all possibly lost consciousness due to pressure issues? Otherwise, I wonder why no texts from victims were sent before. Could also possibly have been in such a remote area that there was no network coverage - not sure?

    I hope they were all unconscious or that the 8 minutes is being mis-reported. 8 minutes is a very long time. I also read that they were struggling to find the flight recorder. They have one but need the other. They found the case but not whatever is supposed to be inside.

    Well, it sounds like something really weird had to have happened for this plane to crash in the smooth conditions they had.

    They were speculating on the news earlier that the windscreen had smashed and so the pilots were unconscious. I have no idea how they can possibly know this yet though.

    That's creepy Olivia! One of my clients left yesterday for Venice and they're currently in Barcelona on a lay over. I'm glad I'm not stuck with their cat for all of eternity.

    Huh. Wonder if it was a bird strike. That's what brought this same type of plane down on the Hudson.

    Wow.. Weird..


    AS investigators go through the audio recovered from one of the Germanwings black boxes, reports have emerged that one of the pilots became locked out of the cockpit and was unable to get back in.
    The New York Times reports that a senior military official involved in the investigation described ?very smooth, very cool? conversation between the pilots during the early part of the flight from Barcelona to Dusseldorf.
    The audio then seems to reveal one of the pilots left the cockpit and was unable to get back in.
    ?The guy outside is knocking lightly on the door and there is no answer,? the investigator said. ?And then he hits the door stronger and no answer. There is never an answer.?

    He said, ?You can hear he is trying to smash the door down.?
    The cause of the crash, which killed all 150 people on board, is still unclear and it?s hoped the answers to many questions will be contained in the black boxes.
    ?We don?t know yet the reason why one of the guys went out,? said the official, who requested anonymity because the investigation is continuing. ?But what is sure is that at the very end of the flight, the other pilot is alone and does not open the door.?
    Almost 600 gendarmes and other police and rescue groups were yesterday involved in inspecting the site of Flight 9525 deep in the French Alps and unravelling what may have happened from the moment it took off from Barcelona to its crash about an hour later on Tuesday en route to Dusseldorf.
    The last communication from the doomed jetliner was routine. The mangled black box has yielded sounds and voices, the lead investigator said, but so far not the ?slightest explanation? why the plane plunged into an Alpine mountainside.
