France: Lubitz tried controlled descent on previous flight.

French air accident investigators say that the co-pilot on Germanwings Flight 4525 tried a controlled descent on another flight that morning.

The BEA investigation agency said in a report Wednesday that co-pilot Andreas Lubitz repeatedly set the plane into a descent, then brought it back up again on a flight on the same A320 jet from Duesseldorf to Barcelona.

The report says the pilot appeared to have left the cockpit during that flight as well.

Have a great Hump Day!!!
