Germanwings crashed plane's flight data recorder found

A plane carrying 150 people crashed in the French Alps on Tuesday en route to Düsseldorf, Germany, from Barcelona, Spain. No one is believed to have survived the crash. The Airbus A320 plane, operated by Lufthansa's Germanwings budget airline, went into a rapid decline and lost radar contact with air traffic control about an hour after takeoff at 10 a.m. local time, the airline said. Germanwings said the plane started losing altitude one minute after it reached cruising height, and continued to descend for eight minutes before the crash. The plane crashed in a remote area of the French Alps, about 65 miles north of the riviera city of Nice. A helicopter that was able to reach the crash site confirmed that there were no survivors, French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said. “The violence of the shock leaves little hope,” said French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve.
