Interesting speculation.
Mental health experts say that it was aggression — not just depression — that would have driven 27-year-old Andreas Lubitz to deliberately crash a Germanwings airliner into a mountainside, the copilot breathing evenly as passengers screamed and the plane's frantic captain pounded helplessly on the cockpit door.

We used Air Canada Airbus A320 C-FDSN 206 for our taxi requalification. I did the start, taxied it to runway 32, and did a vibe check on both engines. Greg then took the left seat, and taxied back to the gate.
