Officials: Germanwings Crash A Deliberate Act By Co-Pilot

Authorities say the co-pilot of the doomed Germanwings flight deliberately crashed the Airbus jet carrying 149 other people.

Speaking at a press conference Thursday, public prosecutor Brice Robin said that 28-year-old Adnreas Lubitz deliberately “wanted to destroy the plane.” That was the conclusion reached by French investigators after listening to the last minutes of Tuesday’s Flight 9525 from the plane’s black box voice data recorder.

The investigation, as of this point, turns from what caused the crash to finding out the motives behind the co-pilot’s action.
