    Once again...okaaaaaay.

    So it is women's fault that this nut bag deliberately flew a plane, loaded with innocent people, into a mountain?

    Sir...I find that creepy and disturbing.
    I'm half-kidding. but I will still be correct.

    Are you really suggesting no one could possibly have imagined that the pilot or co-pilot himself might take over the plane by waiting until the other one had left the cockpit, and then locking him out? And are you really suggesting there is no possible way to design an aircraft to allow the pilot and co-pilot access to the cockpit, while denying it to anyone else? I don't buy either one.

    They would or should be able to tell if he was sleeping or even unconscious as breathing slows down considerably.

    I'm assuming his breathing never changed.
    The mental and emotional capacity of someone who's willing to fly a a plane load of innocent people into the side of a mountain would lend some clues as to why his breathing didn't seem laboured as he lost altitude and got closer to the Mountains.

    He's either a Sociopath or is severely mentally ill.

    Very true statement. Sometimes it is necessary I guess, if you want to fly commercial that is. I don't fly.

    Edited to add: I don't like to fly unless I absolutely have to do so. Luckily, I haven't had to for over 20 years. I feel perfectly safe riding my motorcycle anywhere I want, but am terrified to fly on an airplane.

    I watched a press conference on Fox News this morning (forget if it was live or not), but they were talking about this and the CEO of Lufthansa looked like he wanted to put a shotgun in his mouth.

    24 Americans purposely crashed their private planes to die in the last couple of decades. They wanted to kill themselves.
    Once an individual being decides that it's own existence is no longer bearable/wanted/necessary.. The lives of others become incidental to that.
    One instant simple fix would be to put a third pilot back in the cockpit, so nobody is ever left alone there. They were cut as an economy measure.
    Some airlines already mandate that pilots must never leave the cockpit while airborne for short-haul flights, such as that one. Long-haul, you need three, any two awake.

    The security experts were adament about control of the door being in the cockpit. They were concerned that if bad guys took control of the passenger compartment they could force one of the air crew to open the door.

    On the tape, investigators said they could hear the co-pilot breathing normal right up to the end. But.... if he consciously knew he was about to die...wouldn't he breath a little faster or more erratic....not even a gasp?
    Good point. I think even if he was intent on crashing that bird into the mountain he would have made a grunt or growl. I know I would have had to yell a "Holy Crap this is going to Hurt".
