The two person concept isn't a fair fight the attacker whoever it is of the two has the advantage of surprise as the defender doesn't know they are about to be attacked nor are they expecting a co-worker to do such a thing.

This was clearly a deliberately planned event.

What a guy to have as a pilot.
I'd just ignore personal details of a mass murderer. The malicious actor wanted to make a name known and I don't think anyone should respect that idea (To date I don't remember the name as I just ignore it, people such as this don't deserve to be remembered, we can definitely learn from the case but just scrub his identity). Call it a malicious flight deck lock down and a long existing defective door controller as one of the primary failures. (Obviously slap the bad actor with mass murder too)
The "change the industry" was probably intending for the upheaval in the industry to be exactly what the media and people here are doing. Talking about mental health issues, increased scrutiny, drugs, and so on and so forth, breakdown of trust in general (He is trying to get back at all the pilot/crew/doctors/company basically). Instead of focusing on the mass murderer just focus on the people who died without any chance at fighting for their own lives because of that door. Trust in random individuals is always misplaced but trust in the crew as a group is not misplaced the captain and cabin crew tried everything to save their flight to no avail as the CVR transcript reveals.

Can we please have you create a new thread on this? I don't have to read it if I don't want to, but I have no choice here while I wade through looking for details of the Germanwings tragedy.
A male friend of my step-mom was dealing with depression back in the 70's. They put him on some meds and he told her that they made him feel weird. Shortly thereafter, he shot his wife then killed himself.

I have pointed this out one or two parts back. Unfortunately it has reached the stage of flooding, which is against the policies here.
Please refer the policy as I've read it and do not see which policy you are referring too. If the policy dictates I will follow it. Posts are only made to the best of my ability in topics where the issue is relevant and I do not copy and paste the same reply over and over again which is what flooding would imply.
If your talking about, "please do not repeat questions and scenarios that has been covered and discussed in previous threads and which do not contribute or apply, in a constructive manner, towards this conversation any longer." Note that I do not simply repeat the same statement over and over it is written to apply to a reply in a constructive manner towards the current conversation. If you did read what I was posting the idea has evolved because of the input provided as it isn't a static drumbeat.
Is it against policies to talk about what is the major enabler of the crash? The mental health issues are far more speculative then any talk about the plane design.
I'm sorry if any responses are disagreeable or appear repetitive and if anything is appears as a repeat it is only in response to people themselves repeating. The door is a major detail of the Germanwings tragedy and it is a matter of opinion. Should people talking about the mental health issues move somewhere else too, because one could say the same thing that this thread is flooded with speculative and repeats of the same things of which I don't mind.

No System is fail safe and fool proof, whistle blowing, reporting, 2 Person Cockpit, whatever. His former girl friend will not be a happy Person for a Long time. She will likely blame herself for not warning the Company. OTH, this tragic Happening will likely lead that others who have similar experiences will do exactly that.
No system is completely fail safe or fool proof, you can make them more fail safe/fool proof especially if it is a technical system design.
Of the potential fixes, Whistle blowing already exists, Reporting already exists, 2 Person cockpit makes no difference or worse, and so on. Making these things amplified by some means would just catch good pilots and or stress borderline pilots to either get sidelined unjustly or drive them to snap and cause another crash.
Watching too much Mayday or Air Crash Investigations especially certain episodes, fired. Have any sign of stress, fired. Have a relationship problem get falsely accused of being unstable, fired. Read too much airliner.net forums about air crash speculation, fired. Have a nightmare, fired. Have a home flight sim setup, fired.
Do we bench pilots when they have a bad dream? We are talking thought crimes ...
If your asking anyone related to pilots to report them because of any remote chance of instability your just going to make a positive feedback loop of suspicion leading to masking leading to more suspicion and masking till something snaps. No pilot can complain about working conditions, hours, wages, or anything because those are "risk" words...
