PARIS, May 6. /TASS/. Andreas Lubitz, the Germanwings co-pilot suspected of bringing down an Airbus A320 in the French Alps in March, could have tried to rehearse the fatal crash, the French Bureau of Investigations and Analyses (BEA) said in a preliminary report on Wednesday.

According to the BEA report, Lubitz set the Germanwings plane’s altitude to 100 feet (30 meters) during a flight from Dusseldorf to Barcelona on March 24 when the captain had left the cockpit and could not notice the maneuvers.

BEA also confirmed that the co-pilot had crashed the plane deliberately on the return flight to Dusseldorf killing 150 people onboard.
