Several Germanwings flights cancelled after crew refused to fly
Pilots and cabin crew refused to fly over concerns the Germanwings flight 4U 9525 crash may have been linked to a repair to the nose-wheel landing doors…
Obviously the professionals whose lives are on the line appear to think this is a mechanical problem rather than terrorism…or at least that’s the public version of this refusal.
An Airbus A320 passenger jet, Germanwings Flight 9525, crashed this morning in the French Alps after an unexplained eight-minute descent from 37,000 feet to below 6,000 feet. All 150 people onboard the aircraft are feared dead.
Here’s the report from The Guardian:
German Airbus A320 Plane Crashes in French Alps
All 150 passengers and crew on an Airbus A320 flying from Barcelona to Düsseldorf are believed dead after it rapidly lost height and began an as yet unexplained descent into a remote and mountainous area of southern France.
The chief executive of Lufthansa’s lowcost arm, Germanwings, said the aircraft reached its cruising height of 38,000ft at 10.45am, 44 minutes into the flight, and began the descent just a minute or two later. Contact was lost at 10.53am when the plane was at 6,000ft.
The dead are believed to include 45 Spanish and 67 German nationals. A school party of 16 German teenagers returning from an exchange trip to Spain were booked on the plane but school officials could not say if the group had boarded.
The French weather station said the meteorogical conditions were calm at the time of the accident and that the sky was “completely clear”, with almost no wind.
Given the multiple terror threats issued recently by Al Qaeda and the Islamic State, whenever a major jetliner crashes one immediately suspects that jihad may be involved. And, given the Western political propensity to deny and cover up any planned Islamic terror attack, one suspects that the evidence of jihad will emerge slowly, if ever.
The A320 is designed to cruise at 37,000 feet for optimum fuel usage. The fact that it began a controlled descent at full speed without making radio contact with air traffic controllers is peculiar, to say the least.
Our English correspondent Seneca III has been thinking along the same lines, and sent a succession of emails with his observations as various facts began to emerge:
A320 pilots association is saying crash was most likely caused by, quote, ‘pilot incapacitation’!
There were at least two Turks on the passenger list.
French air traffic controllers have reported that the aircraft did not initiate the Mayday call; they (ATC) did because they had lost touch with it (quote). No doubt they were watching its speed/altitude graph, calculating its “steep, controlled” rate of descent and failure to turn away towards the nearest airfield:
Look at that part of the tracks from about 0931 to 0937ish when the speed first began to drop off five minutes after the beginning of the descent stage and the rate of decent began to decrease until it levelled out at 0941 at approx 6500 feet, which is below clearance of the mountain range. Furthermore, I repeat ‘the aircraft kept on its course despite SOP’s requiring it to deviate to the nearest Airport’ (both to the South and West) under such circumstances.
Taking all of that into consideration together with the statement from the moderator of the A320 Pilots Association that the cause was almost certainly ‘pilot incapacitation’, and the presence of at least two Turks on the passenger list, the most pressing explanation is the one I suspect we will hear last from the Islamophiles that rule us.
I am waiting in a state of morbid fascination to hear if the names, ethnicity and religious predilections of the pilots are released and how long this release will take — this will happen quite quickly if there is no enrichment involved, but if it takes more than a couple of days we should have an answer to at least one of the unanswered questions.
Whatever, Hollande and Merkel must know, as will virtually every pilot in the Company and those listening from the same airspace at that time, so if it wasn’t ‘anything to do with Islam’ as usual then it can’t stay hidden for long. They will try of course, along with Cameron the rest of the European Bilderberger and Globalist traitors (every possible theory going will probably be used to explain the incapacitation of the pilots and will be peddled in the hope of muddying the waters) but there remains little doubt in my mind that if it is but even more ‘enrichment’ this will come out eventually and fall upon the ears of an increasingly angry and desperate public.
I think I can hear the faint sound of survival drums growing ever louder, and sense the tenure of the enablers and defenders of the Religion of Peace growing shorter by the day.
Finally: Why has no aerial photo of the crash site been published — the weather is clear and dry? Also watch out for the ‘fly by wire malfunction’ meme for this still won’t explain why the pilots did not respond to the radio.
All of the above is informed speculation, based on scanty data. We need a lot more information.
According to Vlad, the radio news is now reporting that there was a bomb on board. But why a controlled descent after a bomb? Curiouser and curiouser.
This is very much an ongoing story. If new information comes in, I’ll add updates.
