Germanwings Crash: One Pilot Was Locked Out Of Cockpit

According to investigators working on the extracted cockpit voice recordings from the black boxes of the Airbus plane, which crashed into the alps, the unnamed investigator said that “the guy outside is knocking lightly on the door and there is no answer.”

“And then he hits the door stronger and no answer. There is never an answer,” he continues.
“You can hear he is trying to smash the door down,” the investigator added.

The anonymous official, who wished to remain anonymous as long as the investigation was ongoing, said the reason for the pilot’s leaving of the plane cockpit was yet to be found.

The flight, which killed 150 passengers, three britons, 72 Germans, 35 Spaniards and unidentified nationals from 12 other countries, is the latest in the string of air disasters following the downing of a Dutch plane last year.
The aircraft crashed into the French Alpine region.

Meanwhile, a storm and bad terrain had made it difficult to extract the bodies from the crash site.
“We have just been able to extract a useable audio data file,” BEA director Remi Jouty told a news conference at the agency’s headquarters outside Paris.

“We have not yet been able to study and to establish an exact timing for all the sounds and words heard on this file.”
Jouty said that words have been heard on the tape, but he would not confirm whether the Airbus A320 pilots were conscious before the plane crashed.
