German Airbus Crashes In Alps, All 150 On Board Feared Dead

PARIS (AP) – France’s president says no survivors are likely after a passenger jet crashed today in the French Alps.

The Germanwings Airbus passenger, carrying 144 passengers and six crew, jet went down as it traveled from Barcelona, Spain to Duesseldorf, Germany, and France’s Interior Ministry says the plane did send a distress signal.

He says debris from the crash has been spotted but that the search and rescue operation is expected to be difficult because the plane crashed in a remote area.

The plane that went down is an Airbus 320, a single-aisle, twin-engine jet that’s similar to the Boeing 737.

A Boeing safety analysis says the A320 family has a good safety record, with just 0.14 fatal accidents per million takeoffs.
