 and Corinne Cathcart report: The co-pilot of the doomed Germanwings plane appeared to want to “destroy the plane,” Brice Robin, Public Prosecutor of Marseille, said today.

The co-pilot of the Germanwings airbus that crashed in the French Alps Tuesday had 630 hours of flight experience and had started working in 2013, an airline spokeswoman told ABC News.

“You can hear he is trying to smash the door down.”

Germanwings would not provide any other information on the co-pilot’s identity.

One of the pilots may have been locked out of the cockpit, a senior military official involved in the investigation told The New York Times.

The official said the audio on the cockpit voice recorder indicated one of the pilots was outside of the cockpit and unable to re-enter, according to the paper. The unnamed official described hearing the pilot unable to re-enter the cockpit and lightly knock on the door at first, before pounding on it.

“You can hear he is trying to smash the door down,” he told the Times.
