    I can't even imagine the horror.

    And for so many riders.... you have that little fear that you don't really know what's going on in the cockpit. To have the pilot trying to kick the door down to get back in... wow. Absolutely horrible.

    Agreed LITS.

    I don't have issues with people taking their own lives but taking an entire plane full of people is just horrible.

    Co-pilot deserves to spend eternity in the bowels of Hell.

    Definitely creepy, especially since it appears the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 might have been the result of a similar action by a crew member.

    Lufthansa is responsible for knowingly allowing a mentally ill individual to have sole control of an aircraft.

    The "lone wolf" theory makes people feel safer.
    There is no way anyone can know, at this point, what happened.
    No flight data recorder yet. All based on the fact that the pilot was "locked out" and the co-pilot was "breathing normally" ( at least that is what it sounded like).

    This is accident is very unfortunate. I wonder what the knee-jerk reaction regulations are going to be. Just put a head in the cockpit and you won't have to worry about the pilot being locked out... I heard they're going to start requiring 3 crew members on a flight so at least 2 are in the cockpit all the time. Hopefully none of this will affect GA.

    Georgia probably won't be affected.
