Black Box Recovered from German Airline Crash

The black box from Germanwings A320 containing the last data recordings from the doomed airliner was recovered, mangled, twisted, and scarred, from the debris field that ended the promise and hope of the 150 citizens onboard.

Flight 4U 9525, a budget subsidiary of Lufthansa, according to the flight manifest was carrying two babies, an opera singer, and 16 students returning from an exchange program in Spain. They were Americans, British, Spanish, French, and German citizens, nearing the end of a journey and ready, as the plane was less than one hour from Dusseldorf, to be home.  

At 10:30am the doomed airliner dropped dramatically descended from a cruising speed of 38,000 feet to 6,000 feet in less than eight minutes. The decedent put the ill-fated jet on a collision course with the French Alps, with an elevation of 15,782 feet.

The wreckage scattered across a very large, dense, and rugged area, provides a clear visual impression of a catastrophic force explosion.

Recuse teams were airlifted into the rough, rocky terrain to hunt for the two black boxes. The first, which is most common, the cockpit voice recorder provides insights into the moments prior to the crash and includes all messages with ground control and any noise within the cockpit.

The second would provide data of the last 25 hours of mechanical commands, usages and systems checks.

The cock-pit recorder for Flight A320 has been found. The second has not. Although the exterior casing was found and either through the force of the impact or human interaction, which seems hardly possible, the recording of data over the last 25 hours is missing.

Although there is no hard evidence the plane was brought down by terrorist with the recent spread of ISIS related terror attacks across Europe, the possibility clearly exists and the pilot would then be a hero for stopping the attack.

Planes have been used before successfully by Al-Qaeda in the September 11, 2001 terror attacks which brought down the World Trade Center's two towers and demolished a portion of the Pentagon.

The area which is known for its spectacular skiing, is steep, rocky and dense, the recovery mission will take some time with rescuers hoping to have the remains returned to family members quickly.

This is a developing story.
