Lots of questions for sure. One like was the autopilot intentionally disengaged or was it another "coincidence" that it failed at the same time? Every time a plane goes down with no distress call like Malaysian MH370.
It may never happen. Best to be prepared just in case.

I'm not sure it is the best idea to make assumptions that this aircraft was intentionally crashed. There are many reasons why a pilot may have left the fight deck and also why he may then have been unable to get back in. Bathroom break, stretch his legs, refreshment. The co-pilot may have had a medical emergency. As one article I read stated.... In the US flight industry, 2 people have to be in the cabin at all times. If one pilot has to leave they are replaced by a flight attendant. It is unknown at the time if the Europeans have the same policy.

I guess that puts that question to rest the only question remaining now is WHY?

"Summary


Here are the key developments in the aftermath of the Germanwings crash.

The co-pilot forced the plane into the descent that led to the disaster, the Marseille public prosecutor said, after locking out the captain from the cockpit. “It was a voluntary action,” said the prosecutor, Brice Robin. The intention was “to destroy the aircraft”.

The co-pilot deployed a five-minute override when the captain, who had left the cockpit briefly, tried to re-enter by punching in an emergency number into the door.

Unlike in the US, European regulations do not require two people in the cockpit at all times. Lufthansa does not voluntarily implement such a protocol, and the company said that it was not aware of any of its competitors that have such a procedure.

The co-pilot was named as 28-year-old Andreas Lubitz, who had been flying for Germanwings since September 2013 after being trained with Lufthansa at its facility in Bremen and in the US. He had clocked up a total of 630 hours in the air.

Lufthansa revealed that Lubitz’s training in 2009 had been briefly interrupted, but was resumed after “his suitability as a candidate was re-established”. Asked about the reason for the interruption, the CEO, Carsten Spohr, said he was not allowed to say.

Spohr said the company was in complete shock. It was “beyond our worst nightmare”, he said. “It leaves us absolutely speechless. I wouldn’t not have been able to imagine that the situation would have got even worse.

Relatives of the victims arrived in the hamlet near the crash site in the Alps as work continues in retrieving remains and their identification. This may last at least until the end of next week. The second black box has not been found yet.

I stand corrected. It will be interesting to see what the brief interruption in training was for...
