  • In jet's last moments, calm co-pilot ignores pleas to open cockpit

    Andreas Lubitz was breathing, steady and calm, in the final moments of Germanwings Flight 9525.

The sounds coming from outside the cockpit door on Tuesday were something else altogether: knocking and pleading from the commanding pilot that he be let in, then violent pounding on the door and finally passengers’ screams moments before the plane, carrying 150 people, slammed into a mountainside in the French Alps. The sound of Lubitz’s breathing indicated that he was conscious to the end, Brice Robin, the Marseille public prosecutor, said at a news conference.
