Recently, Germanwings flight 9252 crashed into the Alps, with all 150 individuals on board the plane dying in the crash. When news broke of the crash, it proved to be rather odd, as if the plane had any sort of mechanical trouble there are plenty of locations throughout the region for it to emergency land on, and the wreckage of the crash showed it did not break apart in the air. Due to this, the recovery team working on the crash went directly towards the black box in order to see what the flight recorder could shed light on regarding the accident. What they discovered was that the crash really was not an accident.
During the flight, the pilot left the co-pilot in the cockpit for a brief moment, but then when he returned the door to the cockpit was locked. Despite banging on the door, the co=pilot did not open the door or even respond to the calls from the pilot. The co-pilot then directed the plane into the mountains, killing everyone on board.
Folks at Imaging Advantage (prnewswire.com) have learned that the data recorder is able to pick up the heart rate and breathing of the co-pilot, and the heart rate did not elevate drastically or change, so it showed he was awake and in control of the plane. At the very end of the recording, right before the crash, screams from the passengers could be heard right before hitting the mountain.
