|The smithereens of 4U9525|
The Airbus operated by Lufthansa's budget airline 'GermanWings' that crashed in the French Alps yesterday made no radio contact whatsoever for the entire 8 minutes was roaring straight into the mountains (from 32,000 ft)... add to that the fact that no apparent effort was made to override computer controls, the German pilots' experience, the airline's perfect safety record... you can see why the other pilots would now like an explanation before they drag another 150 people to a horrific death.
The pilots were likely either unconscious, bound, or dead- those are pretty much the only logical conclusions. If it was the A320 fly-by-wire computer controls issue, they could have over-rode it with manual controls at some point in the crisis.
The plane made a controlled descent at full speed into a mountain while issuing no distress signal- does that sound like mechanical failure to you?
