MIAMI (Sputnik) — On March 24, 2015, the Germanwings Airbus A320 flying from Barcelona to Dusseldorf crashed in a remote area of the French Alps killing all 150 people on board. According to the information from the plane’s black boxes, co-pilot Andreas Lubitz deliberately crashed the plane after locking the pilot out of the cockpit.
French authorities are conducting a criminal investigation into the crash.
"I am concerned about this [French criminal investigation] becoming a precedent for how accidents are handled," Tyler told the press.
“If we are acting against people or companies in a criminal sense, then we are not going to get the sort of openness, complete transparency that we need to get to the root causes of accidents."
