Last Tuesday, a Germanwings flight crashed in the French Alps. Was it an accident, or was someone planning it? Investigations have been held, and many clues are still emerging. At the crash site, investigators have found the plane's black box, a tool that records what happens on the flight. The black box revealed the what sounded like the pilot leaving the cockpit, but when he wanted to go back in, the copilot wouldn't open the door. Radio contact with their control center was lost, and no distress calls were made by the pilot during the quick, eight-minute descent. Everyone on the flight was assumed dead because of the harmful crash in the mountains.
CNN reporters talk about what was heard from the black box recording. It gives information about the last moments on the flight.
The New York Times gives evidence that the crash was deliberate. For example, the black box recorded the co-pilot's steady breathing, showing that he was conscious.
