I can't imagine the horror f riding that one down with any knowledge the plane was fricked.
The Plane disintegrated upon impact. No survivors.. Germany and Spain both are trying hard to keep rumors of terrorism from spreading.
Of course the usual wackos are claiming credit.
The "word" people are probably mistaking it with the radar tracking and sat programs.

It traveled in a straight line without change of course or speed.. Pretty sure the black box will confirm that.
The European NTSB is working on the cockpit voice recorder to find out why...
Pilot locked out of cockpit before Germanwings crash
Published Bangkok Post: 26 Mar 2015 at 09:45• WRITER: AFP LINK
PARIS - One of the two pilots on a doomed Germanwings flight was locked out of the cockpit before the plane crashed in the French Alps, killing 150 people, a source close to the investigation told AFP Thursday.
Cockpit recordings recovered from the crash site indicated one of the seats was pushed back and the door opened and closed, followed by the sound of knocking, said the source, adding "there was no more conversation from that point until the crash".
The source said an alarm indicating the proximity of the ground could be heard before the impact.
The recording showed the pilots speaking normally and in German at the start of Flight 4U9525 early Tuesday. The source could not say if it was the captain or the first officer who had left the cockpit.
The cockpit voice recorder was found late Tuesday, several hours after the crash of the budget flight from Barcelona to Duesseldorf, and the data analysed Wednesday afternoon.
The Airbus A320 suddenly began a fatal eight-minute descent shortly after reaching cruising altitude.
No distress signal was sent and the crew failed to respond to desperate attempts at contact from ground control.
Pacific Southwest Airlines flight 1771 on December 7, 1987, Pacific Air Lines Flight 773 on May 7, 1964 Those were not caused by the pilot, but had the same results. Here are 5 more the pilot caused. LINK
There seems to be an increasing number of suicides that want to take others with them, get their names in the papers and national TV, and be talked about long after their deaths. Columbine, The Boston marathon, Sandy Hook school. There's been a rash of others who kill several people before they commit suicide, or fail to get the job done. You would have to buy those arguments...
Maybe it's some baddie on Reddington's Black list who every six or seven months will grab a pilot and tell the pilot if he doesn't crash XYZ airplane into a mountain or into the sea...the China sea maybe like the Indonesian ghost plane, or he will execute every known member of the pilot's family....or maybe Hezbollah, or ISIL, or Al Qaeda did it using the same scenario...the plot thickens.
The case of the Islamic suicide bombers is quite different. They leave videos and letters for their families and treat it as a religious experience, kinda like being baptized. They happily go off to meet their 21 virgins (May they all have a case of the clap.) The family is happy for them and the money the terrorist organization awards the family for their sacrificial offering.
In the case of the pilot, new info is coming out.
Pilot of doomed plane 'hid illness'
Published Bangkok Post: 27 Mar 2015 at 20:59 LINK
MONTABAUR, GERMANY —Germanwings co-pilot Andreas Lubitz appears to have hidden evidence of an illness from his employers, including having been excused by a doctor from work the day he crashed a passenger plane into a mountain.
Prosecutors didn't say what type of illness — mental or physical — Lubitz may have been suffering from.
Prosecutor's spokesman Ralf Herrenbrueck said in a written statement that torn-up sick notes for the day of the crash "support the current preliminary assessment that the deceased hid his illness from his employer and colleagues".
German news media painted a picture of a man with a history of depression who had received psychological treatment, and who may have been set off by a falling out with his girlfriend.
Suicide bombers, on the other hand, are often blowing themselves up for a very different, very unselfish, reason. They believe they are advancing some sort of agenda for the greater good. They leave behind a legacy and some sort of message through their actions.
This guy left no such message that can be easily or readily seen at this point. Seems unlikely that he would be a terrorist if he isn't also sending some sort of message.
The co-pilot who deliberately downed an airliner over the French Alps this week, killing all 150 aboard, had told a girlfriend sometime last year that he would "do something" that would make people remember his name, a German newspaper reports.
Andreas Lubitz, 27, who reportedly had hidden a note declaring him medically unfit to fly on the day he crashed the Germanwings A320, told a former girlfriend and flight attendant, identified by Bild only as "Mary W." that: "One day I will do something that will change the whole system, and then all will know my name and remember it."
