    Problem is, all the so called "experts" are on cable tv news networks endlessly speculating, adding nothing to the conversation, worst is "Scary Mary" Schiavo, the biggest publicity hound for hire out there, she is a twit, and is not respected in the airline community.

    Word I am getting is, no bomb, no hijacking, no structural failure. It appears to be a power loss

    Flying on a plane does not scare me to the point of knees shaking and hanging on to the barf bag. But when up there I can't help wonder what it would be like for all of sudden the plane went into a sudden dive to the ground.

    In a car accident you may have a chance to maneuver out of the way of danger or often it is just a big Bang. But as a passenger in a plane you are strapped in a seat without a clue what is happening or any chance to maneuver the controls. Almost like sitting on a roller coaster.

    A " Power Loss " ?

    So they ran out of fuel ? Both Engines simultaneously stopped producing thrust ?

    No one has any idea what happened yetn

    Germanwings flight 4U9525 flying an Airbus 320 from Barcelona to Dusseldorf. 150 aboard (144/6). The plane crashed in the Estrop mountain range in the southern Alps. This locale is inaccessible by land and first responders have arrived via helicopter. The prospect of survivors seems low.

    Not fuel, but not an explosion or structural. We will see, this will be an easy one to figure out when they get the data recorder.

    An explosion would or could be a bomb then.

    These Planes have a multitude of redundant back up systems and rarely fall out of the sky and are most vulnerable to weather anomalies like microburst and they're most vulnerable to pilot error on take off and landings.

    Oh dear,some people genuinely believe this happened because of the total solar eclipse.

    RIP to all victims.
