Andreas Lubitz, The 28-year-old co-pilot of the Germanwings deliberately crashed the Alps Plane disaster.
The co-pilot of the plane which crashed in the Alps activated the descent button and refused to open the cockpit door to the pilot.
Marseille prosecutor Brice Robin says the co-pilot who won a Federal Aviation Authority award in 2013 – wanted to “destroy the plane”.
He said: “We assume the (captain) went to the loo or something. The co-pilot is on his own in charge of the plane, and it is while he is alone that he uses the flight monitoring system which starts the descent of the plane.”
“We hear several cries from the captain asking to get in. Through the intercom system he identifies himself – but there is no answer. He knocks on the door and asks for it to be opened – but there is no answer.”
