Description

French investigators have found that the co-pilot, Andreas Lubitz suspected of deliberately crashing a Germanwings flight into the French Alps in March may have rehearsed the manouevre. An interim report on the disaster data from the flight recorder shows that Andreas Lubitz repeatedly set the plane's computer into a simulated descent - then brought it back up again - on a flight on the same A320 jet on the outward flight. Our transport correspondent Richard Westcott reports.
