The French Bureau of Enquiry and Analysis (BEA) for Civil Aviation Safety on Friday said Andreas Lubitz repeatedly accelerated the plane’s descent, BBC reported.

The Germanwings Airbus A320 crashed in Alpes-de-Haute-Provence in the French Alps killing all 150 people on board.

The flight data recorder from the plane was recovered on Thursday, while the first black box, also known as the cockpit voice recorder, was found barely hours after the crash. IANS
