Pilot locked out of cockpit before Germanwings crash: source

PARIS: One of the two pilots on a doomed Germanwings flight was locked out of the cockpit before the plane crashed in the French Alps, killing 150 people, a source close to the investigation told AFP Thursday.

Cockpit recordings recovered from the crash site indicated the door opened and closed, followed by the sound of knocking, said the source, adding “there was no more conversation from that point until the crash”.
