The question is WHY was there no verbal response whatsoever to the pilot trying to get in to the cockpit recorded?
No "Allahu Akbar"...No " Sorry Hans, I can't let you in". No "Goodbye Cruel World"...

I feel it should be a requirement from now on that the cockpit contain a video camera and record everything that happens. The video can be stored on the black box along with the audio recordings. It would certainly help solve a case like this and also encourage pilots to follow proper protocol if they know their employers can watch what they're doing.

I think we need some sort of a better CVR and FDR to be fitted to all airliners. Something that feeds the data back live to the ground rather than being carried on the plane, or even as well as the ones already fitted.
At the crash site, a senior official working on the investigation said, workers found the casing of the plane’s other so-called black box, the flight data recorder, but the memory card containing data on the plane’s altitude, speed, location and condition was not inside, apparently having been thrown loose or destroyed by the impact.

This video is kind of disturbing.
What it shows is the door locking procedure for these planes. It looks just like what they showed on ESPN.
So, even if the Pilot locked the door and was knocked out, the other Pilot could have still opened the door with a code. About 4 minutes in, they talk about the procedure to use in case the Pilots are incapacitated.
There's a code to get into the cockpit.
It seems, the only way to lock the door is manually and the Pilot inside wouldn't let him back in and that's why he tried smashing the door in.
