  • Background to Germanwings A320 accident


    There are few facts available about the 24 March Germanwings Airbus A320 crash in the French Alps, but it is an unusual event in that whatever precipitated the accident appears to have occurred in the cruise. In this case the cruise was a very brief period – less than 3min from levelling out at the top of climb to the beginning of the continuous descent to impact.
