Co-Pilot in Germanwings Crash Said to Have Practiced Downing Plane


Paris, May 7 (RHC)-- The German co-pilot accused of deliberately crashing a passenger plane into the French Alps reportedly practiced his suicide mission during a previous flight that same day.

French authorities say Andreas Lubitz set the plane’s altitude to 100 feet while the captain had briefly left the cockpit. During the flight’s return leg, it’s believed Lubitz then locked the co-pilot out of the cockpit before crashing the plane intentionally, killing himself and all 149 others on board.
