    There is so far no mention whatsoever from the family, girlfriend, co-workers, schoolmates, and friends of Lubitz that he had any connection to Islam.

    Re: German plane intentionally crashed

    The UK Guardian reported 19 hours ago that according to Germany's most-read newspaper, Bild, which it said is usually "but not always" reliable, a former girlfriend says that Lubitz planned this for a long time and that like other mass murderers, he did want to go down in a blaze of glory.

    "According to the German newspaper Bild, a former girlfriend of Lubitz, identified only as Mary W, said he had told her last year: 'One day I will do something that will change the whole system, and then all will know my name and remember it.'”

    Re: German plane intentionally crashed

    Ah, but there is no point in speculating over the "If only's," sigh. Some countries' airlines almost instantly adjusted policy in the aftermath of this tragedy, and the entire world is talking about it--whether planes should be refitted to provide some sort of urinal tube for the pilots, robots should fly the planes, ground controllers should have an override and be able to take over, and etc. Now medical privacy has to be re-examined. Lubitz tore up two doctor's notes.And that's the best that can come of this mass murderer's "accomplishment"--that everybody's talking and that creative solutions be found.

    Color me a cynic, but criminals are always looking for creative solutions too, and some are innovators.

    I do fly planes for a living which makes me somewhat more credible than many here.

    Very recently an aircraft struck a bridge in Taiwan, it sent out a mayday indicating an engine failure.

    You are working off a confirmation bias.

    I had looked elsewhere for credible confirmation and didnt see anything. To have some kind of credibility, a 'party' should have a little more discretion.

    Blaming the pilot? Really?

    No. I'm not seeking to blame anyone. I'm pointing out that Lubig covered up his illness well enough that no layman picked up on his distress. He maintained the impression of "normality" well enough to convince colleagues, relatives and friends. He might even have convincd himself that he could get through it, then been overwhelmed when left alone to face the black dog.
