Hacked: Did You Really Think Cockpit Door Was Locked?

In the interest of humiliating the lying press

11q_155By Gordon Duff and Jeff Smith, Editors

In all likelihood, the cabin crew of the ill fated GermanWings flight could simply have entered the cockpit at any time.  If the plane were programmed specially to disallow this normal capability of the Airbus320 series, the airline has failed to inform the public of this.

This information is “confidential” as it would be a theoretical aid to hijackers.  Problem is, there are no hijackers, only security agencies that seem to enjoy stealing planes, shooting them down or taking control of their guidance systems.  The hijack scenario makes for good TV and convenient cover stories where “dead men tell no tales” and crash scenes are always quickly secured and “seeded” as needed.

Our suicide story is just a new twist on an old tale.

In order to add to the explosion of information about the recent air event over France, we have done some simple research on the operation of the cockpit door of an A320.  We have published, below, the operations manual.  We also have the following language, taken from the flight crew manual used by Royal Jordanian Airlines, an organization kind enough to have passed this on:

Ident.: DSC-25-11-10-00001006.0001001 / 09 OCT 12
Applicable to: MSN 2649-3685, 4670-5367

A forward-opening hinge door separates the cockpit from the passenger compartment. It has three electric locking strikes, controlled by the flight crew. In normal conditions, when the door is closed, they remain locked. When there is a request to enter the cockpit, the flight crew can authorize entry by unlocking the door, that remains closed until it is pushed open.
When the flight crew does not respond to requests for entry, the door can also be unlocked by the cabin crew, by entering a two to seven-digit code (programmed by the airline) on the keypad, installed on the lateral side of the Forward Attendant Panel (FAP).

Scribd Server Hacked and Crashed

The minute we posted the operating plans of for the A320 cockpit door on Scribd, the site was hacked and crashed.  This is a screenshot showing the hack:


We changed IP addresses to from the UK to US, Canada, Switzerland, Germany and France, the hack is worldwide.  Until Scribd is able to be restored, this is a screen print of the offending page from the flight manual:


a320 Operating Manual Cockpit Door

There are additional questions as to the possibility of a time delay that could disable the keypad, one that can be programmed by the airline itself but it not required and totally optional.

This would mean that it is likely, based on the level of informality at Germanwings, no delay was programmed into the keypad.  This would mean that the cabin crew, by this we mean flight attendants, would have the entry code for the cockpit and would most likely be able to enter at will even if the door were in the lock position.

There is a reason we are publishing this, information that previously was not allowed to be in public hands:

The moment, over 24 hours ago, it was mentioned that the “pilot” was “pounding and screaming,” in an attempt to enter the cockpit, this information became of vital public interest.  Additionally, as soon as the false information was released that air controllers were unable to contact the crew of the plane, it should have been mentioned that crew members have satellite phones available.

Rather than pounding on a door, the pilot might well have been on the phone asking NORAD to land the plane for him.

These phones are usually in each of the crew areas, fore and aft galleys and often sitting out in the open.  A reference is made in this aero-medical flight manual:


For anything other than a very minor medical complaint, the Purser or In-Charge Flight Attendant will normally make a PA announcement asking if there is a doctor or other qualified medical professional (nurse, paramedic etc) on board. If there is a positive response, the medical professional will be asked to assess the patient and to advise the crew of the best course of action.

In the absence of a medical professional (or as a concurrent protocol), many air carriers have a standing arrangement with emergency medical service providers such as Med Link, Stat MD or Med Aire. These service providers can be used both pre-flight and in-flight and can be contacted via satellite phone, high frequency (HF) or very high frequency (VHR) radio phone patch through an ARINC station or by means of Aircraft Communications, Addressing and Reporting System (ACARS) equipment. By one of these methods, direct communication with an emergency room/trauma centre physician is possible.

Anti-Hijack System

Again, we mention the same thing we brought up during the disappearance of MH370:  Modern “fly by wire” planes have, for years, had auto-land systems onboard that are in place to keep planes from being hijacked and crashed into nuclear power plants.  We are told the planes can land using this system in winds up to 30 knots.

We also know that a controlled crash in an area that would cause minimal collateral damage is the second course of events this system is programmed for.

With stories about depression and girl friends being pushed onto the public and very little salient information being given out, information which as usual inexorably leads to unpleasant answers, we have decided to broaden the debate.

All reporting, which for awhile seemed almost rational to a point, has been replaced by agenda driven lies and cover stories.  It has begun again.

    New article seems to confirm the door can be locked and kept locked – if you believe the article of course.

    More info to be taken into account before coming up with a most likely scenario.

      I remember from about thirty years ago the pilots explaining to me that fly by wire (A320) meant the fun was out of flying because you could pull as hard as you wanted but the thing couldn’t be stalled or if you did not obey the audible command “pull up” nearing terrain, the flight management system would do it for you. Impossible to crash was the message. And btw, why was this stuff about the control tower supposedly being able to take over control of the airplane in order to land it safely not seriously brought up as an issue in the 9-11 hoax, necessitating this cooked up hollywood screenplay: “If you eject and your jet soars through without impact . . .” she trails off, the thought of failing more dreadful than the thought of dying.But she didn’t have to die. She didn’t have to knock down an airliner full of kids and salesmen and girlfriends. They did that themselves.(http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/f-16-pilot-was-ready-to-give-her-life-on-sept-11/2011/09/06/gIQAMpcODK_story.html). Andreas Lubitz most probably was a sacrifice along with his passengers.

    I’ll try to keep this question as simple as possible – were the cabin crew able to access the cockpit on this flight?

    According to this video if the pilot held the switch in the locked position it seems nobody could enter – an inbuilt ‘feature’ I’d think to keep hijackers from entering cockpits.

    If this simple question can be answered with certainty either way it will do away with a huge amount of speculation.


    • gogh  April 2, 2015 at 3:04 pm

      The answer is most likely YES. Why would preventing a hijacker from entering for max five minutes be an option? The whole idea woud to keep a hijacker out for MORE then five minutes. Less than five minutes doesn’t make any sense and defeats any rationale behind the installation fleetwide of bullit proof doors. And I don’t see how there is any such thing as a German nation as such opting out of this and being so obnoxious and /or no more professional than any “African or Russian airline”, screaming: “kaputt” to the passengers and hitting the fuselage with a hammer to get the thing up in the air. That is no valid comparison to say the least. In my younger days i flew as a cabin attendent for many years for a major EU airline and you could set your clock on the fact that one of the two (usually men) after reaching altitude would emerge to take a leak. So completely realistic. The whole cockpit door issue is a dead end and will serve only to o obfuscate the fact I also learnt from more then ten years flying around that my gut feeling teels me that the official cause of the crash is extremely improbable

    • gogh  April 2, 2015 at 3:07 pm

      With teh YES below I mean YES the cockpit was able to prevent access

    Just watched more videos and still photos of smiling crisis actors pretending to be victims’ fathers, siblings, colleagues. See freeradiorevolution’s videos on youtube.
    But it all started with the visit of Merkel, Hollande, and the Spanish PM to the staging ground of search/rescue workers, where it is clearly visible that several people are smiling.
    Until disproven, I’m treating this as a EU drill designed to enhance cooperation between EU countries. See how the alleged airplane took off from Spain, Germany-bound, and crashed in France.
    Also, the debris field is highly unconvincing. Looks like ordinary trash with 2 or 3 pieces of planted wreckage.

    We need reliable sources to question this door lock issue. I posted the Door lock thing to the Wikipedia discussion thread on the Germanwings Flight 9525 article. They say we need a reliable source that addresses this. Hopefully if enough of us question this, the airline will be compelled to make a statement.

    Interestingly, right after I posted that to the discussion page, someone posted that thing below it about the descent time.

    [ Editor’s note: Only one link per comment, please ]
    The official Airbus crew instruction video from 2002 (Youtube v=ROIH3KCEIvs#t=33) implies clearly and in no uncertain terms that in as standard presented option the door could be blocked not only for five minutes but effectively indefinitely if you repeat denial of access after any code is entered (which is only logical if you want to keep a hijacker out for more than five minutes which would be the idea behind the thing in the first place). Of course I dont know what happened after 2002, because there have been many issues with the doors: http://www.wsj.com/articles/SB10001424052748703405704575015410398239210). Draw your own conclusions though. The door issue just is not needed to shed serious doubt on the story and focusing on the door will only serve to make the story credible despite.

      the option of cockpit override is only available where there is a “two in the cockpit” requirement which Germany opted out of

      note that the airline has not admitted to “going rogue”

  6. tdcan  March 29, 2015 at 12:54 pm

    I read in the operations manual that the toggle switch in the cockpit can disable the keypad for 5-20 minutes. Unless i am reading it wrong, still don’t believe the official story in anyway. Seems kind of funny how they screen all passengers so thoroughly and yet make crashing a plane as easy as having a box cutter or being depressed

    The next A320 crashed in Halifax, no severe injuries …
    This becomes strange in a quite different direction. Is someone, and with someone I think of someone special, trying to blackmail Airbus? This would explain, why the Germanwings crews didn’t want to fly the machines after the crash. Perhaps these criminals run short of money after being presented to the public and the voting had cost a lot of money too. Getting a hack of the remote controle wouldn’t be so difficult.

    Hey, stock exchange savvy guys, was there any suspicious increase in trading volumes of Lufthansa shares, shorts, put options in the days and weeks before this accident?
    If there was, that could indicate foreknowledge, just like it happened before 9/11 with United and American Airlines put options.
