According to transcripts published today, captain Patrick Sondheimer screamed ‘Open the goddamn door!’ as his killer co-pilot Andreas Lubitz deliberately flew the aircraft into an Alpine ravine after he had left to go to the toilet.
Lubitz is believed to have locked his captain out after the senior officer left the flight deck, and used the flight managing system to put the plane into a descent, something that can only be done manually - and deliberately.
A transcript published in today’s edition of the German newspaper Bild, reveals that the chilling recording starts with captain Sondheimer apologising to passengers for a 26-minute delay in
|Elton with his mother Sheila at his 50th birthday|
The precise nature of what sparked their rift has hitherto never been explained. But in a new interview with DailyMail, 90 year old Sheila revealed exactly what took place between them — and the enduring hurt she feels. Her decision to talk publicly was sparked in part by the pictures that appeared of her 90th birthday party two weeks ago, for which she hired an Elton John impersonator to entertain her 80 guests.
'Yes, it's seven years now in June. But you know, I've got used to it. And it was all so
"Though I am a catholic and he is a Muslim, he got married to me in my church-The Catholic Church. My husband has practiced his religion and he also encourages me to practice mine. There is no trouble at all. In our home, we both have altars. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ and my husband prays in Allah's name & the children understand all that. My children are baptized and they go to church. When he wants them to go to mosque with him they go to the mosque with him."
Now the question is
- As a man, Would you agree to marry a woman who would not follow you to your own church but rather insist that you must wed her in own place of worship?
- As a woman, Would you agree to a marriage where you have a different religion with your husband bearing in mind that the kids would be left in a belief conflict and identity issues?
Sincerely, this is no joke, guys. Our dearest reader had actually called me at about past 5am this morning after she woke up from the horrifying dream, to let you know how serious this is. Please read..
Dear Laila, please treat as anonymous yet important on what am about to tell you. I have been have these plane-crash dreams consistently now for over 2nights. I am a married mother of 2.
The other night , I dreamt I was on an Arik flight and at one point, we kinda stopped over to pick up something (dreams can be funny and unexplainable ) so, I stepped out with someone from the plane only for us to see from afar that the plane was on fire, we rushed to rescue and could only help 2 people out.
When I woke up, my husband thought my dream was related to the Germanwing mishap

Destiny’s Child blew the roof off Orleans Arena in Las Vegas last night after the iconic trio got together and gave a surprise performance at the 2015 Stellar Awards.
After going roughly two years without performing together on the same stage, the members of Destiny's Child came together for the Gospel Music Awards and performed Michelle Williams‘ 2014 Gospel #1 ‘Say Yes’. And if that wasn't exciting enough, the girl group matched in white attire, just like the good ole days.
During the performance, viewers were left so captivated after Beyonce went into the spirit. See the pics and video after the cut. Jay Z and Blue Ivy were in the audience watching the performance and were spotted later with Bey when they were leaving.
The All Progressives Congress governorship candidate in Lagos State, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, says President Goodluck Jonathan was able to get 71 votes at his (Ambode’s) polling unit at Ward A5, polling unit 03, Epe, because members of the Peoples Democratic Party distributed cash.
He, however, expressed pleasure in the fact that the APC presidential candidate, Maj.-Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd), got 97 votes. PUNCH reports he said:
“Some PDP people distributed cash at my polling unit, but they still failed. Hopefully, subsequent elections will be different as people become more enlightened.”Ambode said the process of accreditation went smoothly in his area.
The PDP Lagos Chairman, Capt. Tunji Shelle, however, said Ambode was making a baseless accusation because he was afraid of losing the April 11 governorship election.
He said, “Who are the people who shared the money? Ambode knows that he will lose in the governorship poll. He should come forward with proofs.”
In an interview with Vanguard Emeka Ike, one of the principal actors in the matter vented his anger on the sacked President of the guild. He vows to ensure that the court order is executed despite all odds, alleging, however, that his life is currently being threatened for fighting for justice.
What’s the position of things at the moment?
Nothing has changed about the Federal High Court verdict voiding the election that brought Ibinabo Fiberesima into office as the President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, and the sacking of members of the Board of Trustees of the Guild. That’s the position for now.
Has the court order been obeyed by your opponents?
They will not obey the court order and they are not obeying the verdict of the court of law. They are even calling the court ruling “kangaroo.” What an impunity!
They are yet to obey the court order. I’m hearing that she has gone to Court of Appeal, and if Ibinabo has appealed the matter, common sense demands that she should keep quiet and watch things unfold. Who’s advising her as well as her sponsors? She has appealed the matter, fine! But the appeal has not been granted, whether there will be a stay of execution or not.
It’s just a notice, but I have an order. I am the legitimate President of AGN as we speak now. I don’t know who is giving Ibinabo the wrong impression that the court did not pronounce me the President of AGN.
"My brother, it’s true I’m going to wed soon, and I promise you that no ONE will know my prospective bride before the wedding day. As I’m talking to you now, my wedding suit is ready. I’m going to surprise a lot of people; because most people thought I can’t love; and I will prove to them that I do love and being loved, just that I can’t give up my style for love. I will still remain who I am till the old age,”
Vanguard reports that the election which was conducted peacefully saw the All Progressive Congress Senatorial and House of Representatives candidates also defeating the Peoples Democratic Candidates.
While the APC candidate for the senatorial election polled a total of 597 votes, the PDP candidate won 567 votes from the two polling units in the Villa.
The APC candidate for the House of Representatives also polled 589 votes to defeat the PDP candidate who got 495 votes.
A total of 1,345 voters were accredited in the two polling units.
The announcement of the final result sparked a wide jubilation from APC supporters.
President Jonathan won the election at the two polling units in 2011.
Best Of Nollywood reports that after the court judgement that sacked Ibinabo fibresima’s lead Executives from office- a judgement that is currently been appealed- Emeka Ike has written to Diamond Bank claiming he's the new sole signatory of the guild's account with the bank and that all the money that President Jonathan gave the guild can only be withdrawn by him alone.
This action is coming weeks after Fiberesima and her executives alleged that Paul Obazele and Frank Dallas tried using thugs to take over the Guild Secretariat but were resisted.
It was further reported that the banks however spoke to AGN Bot members, who confirmed the allegations against Emeka Ike.
A member of the AGN bot who wants to remain annonymous stated:
Emeka is broke, It is very obvious and he is desperate. The Ibinabo led AGN has spent a lot in trying to rehabilitate him but he is losing it by the day. He dosnt know how to manage. Even though he won N8M from Gulder Ultimate search, he has wasted all the money including the one given to him by AGN when his landlord evicted him. Please ignore him, He is just a broke angry man
