There may be more to the recent crash in the Alps by the Germanwings A320. It has been revealed from Facebook that maybe the co-pilot that allegedly crashed the plane due to mental illness is being set up for reasons that could be putting us in a dangerous position. A Facebook page called ‘Andreas Lubitz A320, we are against the hunt’ has appeared with members sharing their own ideas about what really happened last week.
Lufthansa, the company who own Germanwings, have been accused of tampering with the black box which records the sound in the cabin, so that it seems that the co-pilot, Andreas Lubitz crashed the plane into the mountains on purpose, with the pilot, Patrick Sonderheimer, seeming to try and break through the cockpit door, in order to stop this happening. The fact that the other black box has supposedly not been found could work in favour of this theory and is also thought to be one part of this massive cover-up by the airline.
Another member of this page, who is said to be his old classmate, believes that Andreas is innocent saying: “I believe in the innocence of Andy!” This coupled with the accusation of an old girlfriend of his being paid by the press, or possibly Lufthansa, to say that he was planning to do something like this that would ‘go down in history’ seems to make these theories even more of a realistic possibility.
It has also been revealed that since the crash, Andreas’ family have asked Google to blur any images of his home on Google Maps that he was sharing with his girlfriend, Kahtrin Goldbach. Although this is now possible since Google offered this to all Germans, due to German laws, could this support ideas that his family knew about what was really happening with his personal life, and that they just want some privacy from prying eyes, knowing that this could’ve been done by Andreas?
There is no doubt that his mental health was questionable, and that it is confirmed that he was not in the correct state of mind to be flying that airplane, but could Lufthansa be taking this opportunity to wrongly blame an innocent man, and to put a black mark on how he is remembered? Are the German laws, stating that the pilot’s medical condition does not have to be fully declared to the airline, what caused this atrocity to happen?
