There doesn’t seem to be anything abnormal here. But maybe there is. It is always strange when a plane crashes. Like, we should at this point have a hang on how this is done.

One automatically assumes “Moslems,” but if it were Moslems, they would have announced it by now.  Generally.

USA Today:

A commercial jet with 148 passengers and crew crashed Tuesday in the French Alps en route from Barcelona to the German city of Dusseldorf, the French government said.

Germanwings Flight 9525 issued a distress call at about 5:45 a.m. ET and disappeared from radar at about the same time, authorities said. In a live televised address, French President Francois Hollande said there aren’t likely to be any survivors.

“It’s a tragedy on our soil,” he said. “I want to express all my solidarity to the families of the victims of this air accident. This is a bereavement, a tragedy.”

Flight tracking systems indicated the plane was cruising at 38,000 feet at 5:28 a.m. Seven minutes later it was down to 24,000 feet — a swift but controlled descent. At that point the Flightaware tracking system provided no further statistics.

French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said the Airbus 320 crashed near Digne les Bains, in the Alpes de Haute Provence region — about 65 miles north of Nice. Debris from the crash has been located at an alititude of more than 6,000 feet.

Capt. Benoit Zeisser of the Digne-le-Bains police, told the French network iTele there were some clouds but the cloud ceiling was not low. Valls said he had sent Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve to the scene.
