 Lufthansa Germanwings Plane Crashes, 148 Feared Dead

An Airbus operated by Lufthansa's Germanwings budget airline crashed in the French Alps, killing all 148 on board. There were 148 people on board and the conditions of the accident, which have not yet been clarified, indicate no survivors.

 


France's DGAC aviation authority said taht the airliner crashed near Barcelonnette, about 100 km (65 miles) north of the French Riviera city of Nice. The Airbus A320 was carrying 142 passengers, two pilots and four cabin crew, citing aviation officials. It is the first crash of an airliner on French soil since the Concorde disaster just outside Paris in July 2000.



French accident investigators are heading for the crash site in Meolans-Revel, a remote and thinly populated commune in the foothills of the French Alps.
