El Airbus 320, operado por una aerolínea económica de la aerolínea alemana Lufthansa, Germanwings, en su vuelo de Barcelona a Dusseldorf cayó desde una altitud de crucero de 38.000 pies a unos 6.800 metros por encima de la ciudad de Barcelonnette en los Alpes de Alta región de Provenza, cerca de 65 millas al norte de Niza.

El descenso de 10 minutos fue descrito como inusualmente rápido, pero posiblemente controlado a pesar de que dejó el avión demasiado baja para navegar por las montañas. Hubo informes contradictorios sobre si es o no se ha enviado una señal de socorro.

Los equipos de búsqueda no esperan encontrar supervivientes de las 150 personas a bordo del avión, dijo el presidente francés, Francois Hollande, llamando al accidente “una tragedia que ha ocurrido en nuestra tierra.”




Germanwings jet crashes in French Alps with 150 on board

The Airbus 320, operated by German carrier Lufthansa’s budget airline, Germanwings, was 50 minutes into its flight in clear weather from Barcelona to Dusseldorf when it dropped from a cruising altitude of 38,000 feet to around 6,800 feet over the town of Barcelonnette in the Alpes de Haute Provence region, about 65 miles north of Nice.

The 10-minute descent was described as unusually rapid, but possibly controlled though it left the plane too low to navigate the mountains. There were conflicting reports about whether or not a distress signal was sent.

Search teams expect to find no survivors among the 150 people aboard the passenger plane, French President Francois Hollande said, calling the crash “a tragedy that has occurred on our land.”\
