That's as I understand it, the autopilot was reset to 100FT, well below….1000's of feet below the area's terrain limit and I imagine if on autopilot it would have been a controlled descent up to some point.

common sense dictates that, when the world is being run by psychopathic mass murderers and congenital liars,
one should never believe anything they say...
Herrenbrueck said other medical documents found indicated "an existing illness and appropriate medical treatment," but that no suicide note was found.

So earlier today they didn't have the Flight Data Recorder. But they know for certain that the autopilot was set to 100 feet, and that the door lock button was pressed twice during the descent.
And no one finds that odd?

Of course this does not explain why the cabin was locked, I am just finding it difficult to believe that a depressed individual could murder 149 other people with him intentionally. Just a thought.

I discovered something rather interesting, though I'm not certain if it is even relevant to this case.
My ex husband took a flight to Germany about a year ago for a wedding. He took Lufthansa, I think, and it was a flight from Spain to Hamburg. Same plane model. Anyway, during the flight, in the same area over the French Alps, the plane started having some serious problems, and they turned back around and landed in Barcelona, where they were stuck for about 7 hours while the plane was checked and such. He didn't know what the exact reason for the delay was, though he had heard something about hydraulics. The plane eventually took off again and landed in Hamburg later without further incident. His adopted son, whose wedding he had attended, had flown from Germany to Spain previously to visit my ex, and a similar thing happened. Same plane type, same exact area over the French alps, though I don't know the specifics of that one.
I just thought I'd throw this out, though I doubt it has any relevance to this case. But since a number of people are doubting the official story, I figured I'd mention this.

You completely misunderstood 3d was saying that her ex-husband was on a flight on that same route that had technical issues and had to land. She is therefore proposing that perhaps there is something to do with that region of the planet. Perhaps a Bermuda Mountain?
That is how I read it. She was not at all connecting herself to this strategy.
However, this would cause a buzzer to go off inside the cockpit, which presumably would have been captured by the black box recording. Robin gave no indication that such a sound was heard while Lubitz sat silently in the cockpit on the plane’s eerie descent.'
