Lufthansa: Co-pilot told flight school of depressive episode
BERLIN - German airline Lufthansa says the co-pilot of the passenger plane that crashed in the French Alps last week informed his flight school in 2009 that he had had a "serious depressive episode."
Lufthansa says the note was found in emails that Andreas Lubitz sent to the Lufthansa flight school when he resumed his training after an interruption.
The airline said Tuesday it has provided the documents to prosecutors and declined to make any further comment.
Questions have been raised about what the airline knew about Lubitz's condition before last week's fatal crash.
