About Flight 9525

On 24 March 2015, a Germanwings Airbus registration D-AIPX Flight 9525 was en route from Barcelona to Dusseldorf  when it crashed in the French Alps, killing  144 passengers, two pilots, and four cabin crew. The consensus, based on cockpit voice recordings, is that the crash was intentionally caused by  27-year-old Andreas Lubitz, the co-pilot. As a result of this tragic event, European Aviation Safety Agency began recommending  two authorized persons always be in the cockpit when in operation.

  1. First I’d like to offer my condolences and sympathy for the families of the deceased.
    May the hand of God continue to guide them.

    I’ll not dispute the widely disclosed information after the international media jumped to their conclusions and transmitted them to the public, nor the reasons why they did.
    But I can ask…

    My reasoning lie in the principles that guide an Aircraft Accident Investigation.

    Aircraft Accident Investigation exists for the purpose of enhancing Aviation Safety, Procedures, Methods, and Rules that might contribute to help mitigate and prevent future aviation accidents. Aircraft Accidents Investigation is not intended to blame, to accuse, nor to feed a Court of Law with evidence that might eventually blame or mitigate the guilt of individuals, corporations or organisations.

    The point is, no Aircraft Accident Investigation team (or Individual Investigator) would ever disclose sensitive information regarding an ongoing investigation that had barely begun; never!
    That’s exactly what has happened with the related flight. The International Media obtained sensitive information from an unknown source, and, in an act of complete irresponsibility, jumped to a conclusion, blamed an individual (who’s no longer able to defend himself) without waiting for the investigative team to properly sort, collect, analise and process relevant data, evidence and information related to the demise; and published the scoop.

    Question is: Who gave the media the right to disclose the information and jump to their own conclusions about an ongoing Aircraft Accident Investigation?
