RE: Germanwings A320 Crashed Enroute BCN-DUS - Part 13

Keratoconus vision problem could be a career destroyer, I, myself found out I had it in my early 20's and ended my dream to pursue a pilot career as my eyes were sensitive to wear hard gas permeable contact lenses.

It was a big lump to swallow, but I trained and convinced myself to move on.

RE: Germanwings A320 Crashed Enroute BCN-DUS - Part 10

So basically my understanding, there was no sign of trouble nor a worry nor out of the ordinary comments made by the co-pilot during the first leg. otherwise the Captain would not dare to leave the cockpit, so this is just either a sudden snap or a really well calculated action?

We tend to forget that pilots are humans too, despite what they go through in training and security checks, they can snap at any short notice.
