- A young co-pilot is blamed for a suicide plane crash, leaving 149 dead. On March 24 2015 a Germanwings flight 9252 crashes full frontal in the French Alps. The media tells us almost immediately, that nothing was wrong with the plane. Then the media tells us, co-pilot Lubitz had committed suicide, locking a captain out.
- The evidence against the captain of the flight is stronger. It seems odd to focus solely on Andres Lubitz as the guilty one, when the captain took the initiative to a) leave for the bathroom, b) set the automatic pilot for landing early. An alternative theory is that in fact the captain crashed the plane and then blamed co-pilot Lubitz for it. Why else would someone take 11 minutes to crash a plane using the automatic pilot? It allows the captain time to act as if co-pilot Lubitz locked him out, and then leave himself by escape cabin. This alternative theory also explains the odd extreme “turbulance”; and that “the wing hit something”. Perhaps the captain even had a second accomplish, to keep his plan hidden.
- It is unacceptable how the co-pilot is already convicted in a trial by media, immediately. The anonymous captain Sonderheimer is a hero. Based on what? My educated guess is, that 148 valuable human beings died a terrible death. And two terrorists escaped. This was planned years in advance, not by Andreas Lubitz.
I still have many questions about this tragic event (link). RIP, all of you on that plane.
