HOUSTON, TX - Day by day, new pieces of information are coming in from the French Alps, where Germanwings flight 9525 crashed. The second black box reveals the flight's co-pilot Andreas Lubitz intentionally used the controls to speed up the plane`s descent.

After finding out these details, we hit up passengers flying out of Houston to ask them if were concerned about who was flying the plane or if there is a new layer of concern about airplane security?

Sam Waldorf said, "Such a small chance to have a plane down or such a tragedy like that, but you just have to get on a plane and realize, it`s just like lightning. You could get struck today or tomorrow."

Daniela Schiliro was thinking about it as she boarded her flight, "I feel like a lot of mishaps have been happening lately, so it gets you thinking and flying is definitely an issue."

Prosecutors say the tablet found in Lubitz`s apartment showed that he researched ways to commit suicide and explored cockpit door security on the internet.

Brian Rose isn't worried, "It was a little surprising and jarring and obviously very unfortunate but really, no concerns."

"It`s a rare event and I think, obviously we need to look and learn from it, hopefully they`ll make adjustments," added Bruce Hall.

"I think of that as an isolated incident over there more than anything else," said Brian Maurer.

So, air travelers don't seem overly concerned. For those who are worried, there's always the bus.
