德国客机失事 恐150人遇难

【相关新闻】

3月24日,德国之翼航空公司一架A320客机在法国南部阿尔卑斯山区坠毁,机载150人,包括144名乘客和6名机组人员。法国总统奥朗德称,机上人员恐全部遇难。据悉,客机上没有中国乘客。这架空客A320客机属于德国之翼航空公司,已服役24年。法国内政部长卡泽纳夫证实,失事客机的一个黑匣子已经找到,专家将对黑匣子进行分析,以查明飞机坠毁原因。当地官员称,坠机现场位于海拔约2000米的积雪山区,搜寻救援工作非常困难。

据悉,失事飞机当地时间10时01分从西班牙巴塞罗那起飞,原定于11时35分在德国杜塞尔多夫市降落。飞机于10时45分达到38000英尺(约11582米)高度,失事前最后一次出现在法国雷达中是10时53分,高度约6000英尺(约1829米)。飞机坠毁前下降过程共持续了8分钟。据飞行日志数据,飞机曾发出“7700”求救信号(“7700”为飞机驾驶员应答机代码,意为“遇到紧急情况”)。

An Airbus 320 plane of German budget airline Germanwings with 150 people on board crashed in southern France on Tuesday while en route from Barcelona to Dusseldorf. No survivors were expected to have survived the crash.

The Germanwings flight 4U9525 left Barcelona at 10:01 a.m. local time (0901 GMT) with 144 passengers, including two babies, and six crew members on board, said the airline's chief executive Thomas Winkelmann at a press conference. Identities of passengers were not disclosed. According to Winkelmann, there were 67 Germans on board, including 16 students and two teachers who were on their way home after an exchange in Spain. There were no Chinese passengers on board, according to Winkelmann.

The flight was scheduled to arrive in Dusseldorf at 11:35 a.m. local time (1035 GMT), but started to descend one minute after reaching its cruising altitude of 38,000 feet at 10:45 a.m. The descent lasted for eight minutes and "at 10:53, the contact with the French radar was broken," said Winkelmann, "then the plane crashed."

According to the French government, the crash site was located in a snow-covered area in the French Alps which is particularly difficult to access and only helicopters can reach. Causes of the crash remained unclear, though the French Interior Ministry announced Tuesday evening that the black box of the crashed plane had been found and transferred to investigators.
