A young German co-pilot barricaded himself alone in the cockpit of Germanwings flight 9525 and apparently set it on course to crash into an Alpine mountain, killing all 150 people on board including himself, French prosecutors said on Thursday.
The killer Alps pilot’s boss last night admitted he had slipped through the ‘safety net’ and should never have been flying.
He was 28-years-old and was from Montabaur, Germany,where he lived with his parents. He also kept a flat in Duesseldorf, where the flight from Barcelona was bound.
French and German officials have agreed that the crash of a Germanwings Airbus A320 was apparently a deliberate act by the plane’s co-pilot, identified as Andreas Lubitz, who they said locked the other pilot out of the cockpit and forced the plane down. Officials spent Thursday searching for clues for what may have motivated Lubitz.
Prosecutors say Lubitz was “not known” to have links to terrorism or extremists, however the investigation is ongoing.
