Looks like +Capt Mak RET​ figured it all out before the french prosecutor.

Germanwings plane crash: Co-pilot 'wanted to destroy plane' - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-32063587
 
Earlier today I'm talking to a colleague about this latest crash... and I tell him I know exactly what went wrong with this flight, and it's something nobody on CNN is talking about..THE TIMING.

You take the following facts into account, and I could come up with no other conclusion - pilot suicide:

1 - The plane had just reached cruise altitude.  That's the first opportunity either pilot had to take a piss.

2 - The plane is right in front of the mountains.. almost exactly at that point in time.

3 - For no reason at all, the plane begins a gradual descent (not a plummet as described by fucktards) at 3,000 fpm (feet per minute).

I know how the A320 flies.. and there was only one explanation in my mind... one of the pilots set the descent rate very precisely, locking the other pilot out of the cockpit.

DESPITE WHAT ANYONE SAYS, THIS WAS NOT A MEDICAL CONDITION OF THE PIC (PILOT IN COMMAND), AND HERE'S WHY...

In order to make the A320 descend at precisely 3000 feet per minute, there are two basic ways to do it:

1 - You have to turn a knob to set it.
2 - You have to push the control stick forward until the needle on the control reaches that descent rate.. You let go of the stick, and the plane will maintain that precise descent.

If the pilot had suffered a stroke or aneurysm, or heart attack at that precise moment that the other pilot left the cockpit, and fell forward on the stick, he would have sent the plane plunging into the earth at a much faster rate.  Also, most likely, he would have turned the plane onto a new heading, while descending.

This was a deliberate act... not a malfunction.  The A320 does have a history of "nosing down" uncommanded.. but that has never resulted in a lethal outcome, and that has been fixed through airworthiness directives... besides that, the pilots had plenty of time to contact ATC to report the problem, and the company dispatch to aide in troubleshooting the issue.

+CNN none of your experts noticed the precise timing of this event?  At cruise altitude, in front of the mountains?  The fact that that's when pilots go to the bathroom... when cruise altitude is reached?

Now I feel good about saying.. the simplest explanation is the most probable cause, and MH370 was a suicide.

MFW I figured it out before CNN.

Hmm unfortunately I must say that flying systems are actually designed to a high level of redundancy. A malfunction to any system will be bypassed by a different and independent system that can replace the erratic one.
Disasters due to technical problems where always a mix of malfunction and bad human interpretation.
See recent Air France disaster near Brasil.
What you have mentioned are really small issues: a flight can land without any gears just by sliding on retardant foam sprayed on the runway.
Bumpy landings, vertical falls and stalls are all part of the training, when they succeed is just because the pilot has correctly assessed the situation and has applied the right procedure.
I can assure you that at 600+ km per hour of speed there is no intuition fast enough to correct any malfunction, it's all about procedures and foreseeing issues.

Scraping the bottom of the barrel

"A recently deleted Facebook page bearing Lubitz’s name (...) offers few clues as to why the 28-year-old might have deliberately crashed the plane."

"There are links to a climbing wall, Kletterwald Sayn, located in a forest, a local bowling alley, Pinup, and one of Koblenz’s nightclub’s, the Agostea Nachtarena. And to a branch of Burger King."

"Lubitz hints that his favourite music acts as Paul Kalkbrenner, a German electronic producer, and David Guetta, a French DJ turned record producer."

"He also likes Bose speakers."

"The pilot also appears to have had a sense of humour. One website on Lubitz’s Facebook profile is “Wenn Männer Allein Sind” or “When Men are Alone” - not a place for lonely singles but a humorous website which includes videos of men fooling about with chainsaws on frozen lakes, or haplessly looking after babies. It features an image of a man breaking wind. Someone has posted in the comments section in German: “I love being a man.”"
The first officer, with 630 hours’ flying time under his belt, was regarded by colleagues, friends and neighbours as a normal, friendly man

+Paul Newport it definitely was a really easy situation for the co-pilot to make his plan happen.
It freaks me out to think that he may have been trying this before but didn't have the right opportunity. That's why I think that if another flight assistant or anyway a third person was in the cockpit during the captain absence, this may not have happened.

Introduction
IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER: 
If you want more GIFs (so funny), cats (so cute), HDR pictures (so beautiful) , quotes about life and stuff (so true) or any other internet memes, then ...DON'T circle me. You won't usually get any of that from me (there are always exceptions to the rule).

Born and raised in the South of France. Son of italian immigrants. Londoner since 2000. Married in Las Vegas. Three young kids. Atheist. I love films, food, books, Arsenal FC, a bit of technology and a lot of other stuff.

I spend most of my online time on Google+.
I have closed both my Facebook  in 2011, and never looked back. What a dreadful place.
After a 3-year hiatus, I am now back on Twitter (@carbonara72). I'm not really a fan of this platform, but it has its uses. My tweets are mostly automatic reposts from Google+.
I think I still have Tumblr, Ello, so.cl,  and MySpace (!) accounts but never go there.

I don't add people back to my circles automatically, so if you just circled me to sell me something, then I will either ignore you, or block you.
If I circle you, it's usually because I enjoyed one of your posts or comments. So if you never post or comment, unless I know you in real life, there's little chance I will circle you.
