Germanwings Airbus A320 crash mystery seemed to take a murky turn as French prosecutors blamed the co-pilot of the plane for the jet’s rapid descend before the crash, said on Thursday.
According to the officials, the co-pilot of the Germanwings flight that crashed into the French Alps took sole control of plane and intentionally started the descent, the BBC reported.
According to a report, the co-pilot seemed to ‘want to destroy’ the plane.
French prosecutors concluded the co-pilot’s role after extracting vital information from the cockpit voice recorder that had revealed that the pilot of the plane had been unable to enter the cockpit as it was locked.
This particular revelations that tumbled out of the cockpit voice recorder suggested that there might be a conspiracy behind the tragedy that killed all 150 aboard.
According to the investigators, recordings from one of the black boxes that was recovered just a day after the crash – the CVR – revealed that one of the pilots who left the cockpit could not get in back there and his frequent knocks on the locked door went unanswered till the plane crashed in the French Alps, reported the New York Times.
“The guy outside is knocking lightly on the door and there is no answer… And then he hits the door stronger and no answer. There is never an answer,” one of the investigators told the New York Times citing the information extracted out of the CVR.
“You can hear he is trying to smash the door down,” the investigator added.
However, it is not yet clear why one of the pilots may have gone out of the cockpit as according to the recordings, the conversation between the two pilots has been described as “cool” by one of the investigators.
“We don’t know yet the reason why one of the guys went out…But what is sure is that at the very end of the flight, the other pilot is alone and does not open the door,” the New York Times quoted the investigator as saying.
The sensational piece of information comes as an interesting twist in the Germanwings crash saga, the cause of which still remains a mystery.
