Germanwings plane crash: Pilots was locked out of the cockpit when the aircraft crashed

Mystery surrounds the Germanwings crash after it was revealed one of the pilots was locked out of the cockpit. Early analysis of the cockpit voice recorder suggests the man was trying to smash the door down to get back in. However, there is not yet any indication why he left or what happened to the pilot left in charge of the plane. A senior military official involved in the investigation described a “very smooth, very cool” conversation between the pilots during the early part of the flight from Barcelona to Düsseldorf. Then the audio indicated that one of the men left the cockpit and could not re-enter.

“The guy outside is knocking lightly on the door and there is no answer,” the investigator said. “And then he hits the door stronger and no answer. “There is never an answer.” He said: “You can hear he is trying to smash the door down.” While the audio seemed to give some insight into the circumstances leading up to the Germanwings crash, it also left many questions unanswered.

“We don’t know yet the reason why one of the guys went out,” said the official, who requested anonymity because the investigation is continuing. “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 mangled voice recorder, one of the Flight 4U 9525 ‘s two black boxes, was found hours after the jet crashed in the French Alps on Tuesday, killing all 150 people aboard.

It holds the last two hours of cockpit noise and chatter. The first files were extracted from it today – though a full analysis may take months. The smashed-up recorder arrived at the HQ of France’s accident investigations bureau BEA in Paris today.
