Story Text: Rescue teams geared up on Monday (March 30) morning as search operations for the second black box and bodies of victims of the Germanwings Airbus crash continued in the small Alpine village of Seyne-les-Alpes.
All 150 people on board the Germanwings flight died after 27-year-old co-pilot Andreas Lubitz locked the cockpit door, took control of the Airbus A320 and veered it into a mountainside in the French Alps on Tuesday (March 24).
German prosecutors said on Friday (March 27) documents seized at Lubitz's homes indicated that he had an existing medical condition and that he had hidden it from employers.
The wreckage of the Airbus A320 still lies scattered on the mountainside and investigators and members of France's emergency services continued to comb the inaccessible zone for bodies and the second "black box" flight recorder.
Whilst the first, detailing conversations between the aircraft's two pilots described as "laconic" by French investigators, has already been found, the second is still unaccounted for.
