Last summer at 21WIRE we conducted a lengthy investigation into the history of avionics, following the ‘questionable’ vanishing of Malaysian flight MH370 and the downing of MH17.

After extensively examining both the unprecedented disappearance of MH370 and the subsequent downing of MH17, certain details came to light regarding the history of the remote autopilot function installed within Boeing commercial airliners.

While authorities have been quick to implicate Germanwings co-pilot Andreas Lubitz, we must consider the following…

The Boeing 777 along with other Boeing models, can in fact be flown remotely through the use of independent embedded software and satellite communication. Once this advanced system is engaged, it can disallow any pilot or potential hijacker from controlling a plane, as the rooted setup uses digital signals that communicate with air traffic control, satellite links, as well as other government entities for the remainder of a flight’s journey.

This technology is known as the Boeing Honeywell ‘Uninterruptible’ Autopilot System.

The mere existence of this technology would most certainly provide the final piece to a number of seemingly unsolved airline disaster puzzles in recent years…

In the YouTube clip below French investigators discuss the possibility of an automatic pilot. additionally, reporters question theories of lithium batteries being held in the plane’s cargo bay.

Germanwings co-pilot appears to have crashed plane deliberately – prosecutor

RT News

The Germanwings co-pilot seemed to have crashed the plane deliberately, killing 150 people on board. The co-pilot wouldn’t let the captain inside the cabin, with the “intension to destroy” the jet, the French prosecutor said at a press conference.

The Germanwings co-pilot was identified as Andreas Lubitz.

The captain was between 30 and 40 years old, fully qualified, had 10,000 hours of flight, and had worked with Lufthansa for 10 years, while the co-pilot was 28, and commenced working for Lufthansa in 2013.

Prosecutor Brice Robin provided the explanation he thought the most likely, judging by the transcript of the black box recording of the last 30 minutes in the cockpit before the crash.

The captain left the cockpit to go to the toilet, asking the co-pilot to take over. Then the co-pilot accelerated the plane’s descent, likely voluntarily, the prosecutor said.

Someone attempted to break open the door to the cockpit from the outside, he added.

Afterwards, demands for the co-pilot to open the door are heard, and the captain “desperately” bangs on the door, but the co-pilot refuses to open it.

On the recording, there is the sound of the co-pilot breathing “normally” and “not uttering a single word” until the plane crashes, the prosecutor said.

The recording suggested that passengers began screaming just before the final impact.

Services on the ground didn’t receive any distress signals from the A320 before the crash, despite several attempts to contact the aircraft.

The prosecutor said that there are no grounds to regard the crash as a terrorist act.

Robin said that there is a case for premeditated murder to answer as the co-pilot was responsible for the lives of the passengers and crew onboard.

Germanwings wrote on its Twitter page on Thursday that it was shocked by the prosecutor’s statement.
