It's been more than a week since Germanwings co-pilot Andreas Lubitz deliberately crashed a plane into the French Alps, killing all 150 passengers on board, and we're just now starting to learn more about the days leading up to the horrific incident.
New information on Andreas' iPad search history reveals the 27-year-old was plotting his mass murder suicide for about a week before the crash. In fact, investigators say he was researching different ways of committing suicide as well as the security measures of cockpit doors. Andreas reportedly locked the other pilot out of the cockpit before he intentionally crashed the plane.

This comes shortly after it was revealed the Andreas had a history of mental illness and was months away from losing his license.
While more information continues to be released on the crash, Germanwings is doing everything in its power to return to normal as their planes are finally back in the air, and pilots are making an effort to win back their passengers' trust.

For example, one pilot reportedly stepped out of the cockpit while he gave his pre-flight announcement so passengers would get a chance to look him in the eye before they took off.
Another pilot on a separate flight reportedly greeted passengers as they boarded the plane and spoke about his family, just to assure them he would "do everything to be with his family again."
While these may seem like small actions, we're sure there are plenty passengers who appreciate the gesture, especially as things slowly return to normal for Germanwings.
