Topic: Germanwings pilot hid from doctors he was still flying

By Caroline Copley and Madeline Chambers BERLIN (Reuters) - The Germanwings co-pilot suspected of deliberately crashing an airliner in the French Alps allegedly lied to doctors, telling them he was on sick leave rather than flying commercial planes, German daily Bild reported on Thursday. The revelation came as Germany set up a task force to learn safety lessons from the crash which killed 150 people last week. Citing sources close to the investigation, Bild said 27-year-old Andreas Lubitz had sought medical help to try to cure an eye condition. Although Lubitz told doctors about his job as a pilot, and in some cases about his employer Germanwings, he deliberately concealed that he was still working, the paper said.
