A French prosecutor says the co-pilot of the Germanwings passenger jet that crashed in the French Alps this week made a "deliberate attempt to destroy the aircraft." Todd Curtis is the creator of the website Airsafe.com, and a former airline safety engineer for Boeing. V-O-A's Sarah Williams asked him if there are recent precedents for such a plane crash.
