>> good morning heather and ainsley. from it the details the leaked report one of the pilots lefted the cockpit the voice recorder we can extrapolate there was not another person in the cockpit because there were no reports. there are requirements one pilot leaved the cockpit. we have been trying to find out what european regulations are on that. we have not bbable to get a clear line on agencies here but i did speak to a pilot who flu for 40 years until 2005. after 9-11 when a lot of things changed. he flew with middle eastern airlines and he said there was no such regulation in europe that he needs to sit with the co pilot while he goes to the
bathroom. he said the policies varied from airline to airline here. when a pilot is alone esquired to wear an oxygen mask. >> amy kellogg thank you for the details. breaking details about the pilot raising a lot of questions for all of us this morning. >> to answer some of the questions we turn now to license pilot doug luzader who is live from dc. good morning, doug. the big question, what can happen inside the cockpit? >> the two scenarios that seem to be developing here is an incapacitated pilot or a pilot willfully trying to crash the plane. there are other possibilities out there but those are the two tra logicalreally pop out at you from the damaged but usable cockpit voice recorder. if they get the flight data
recorder as well because they are missing pieces of that that may fill in some gaps here. this is pretty alarming from what they are getting from the cockpit voice recorder. are they different than they are in the u.s.? >> i think amy spoke to that saying there is a difference in regulations. you need to have another crew member enter the cockpit if one of the pilot leaves for some reason. one of the interesting things here the associated press is reporting on this as well, there is a fail-safe built into this secure cockpit door system. where if the pilot is incapacitated another pilot can punch in a code according to the associated press on a key bad if there is no response the door automatically opens. if you if the pilot in the cockpit wants to over ride the key bad device he or she can do
that. that is another wipg el in all of this which would make it less likely it was an incapacitated pilot at the controls of the plane. >> they would physically have to sflip a switch. >> you think about the passengers watching the pilot banging on the door trying to get into the cockpit. >> an awful thought. >> now we are going to take you to another fox news alert. another big story we are following. sergeant bowe bergdahl facing life in prison after being charged with desertion and misbehavior before the enemy. chief washington correspondent james rosen is live in dc with the details. >> heather and ainsley the decision to file court-martial charges against bowe bergdahl and the young sergeant's release denying he deserted the post raises a host of questions for the obama administration. auditors for the government
affordability office found the president and his aids broke the law by moving ahead with the swap of the taliban figures in exchange for bowe bergdahl. >> was it worth it? absolutely. we have a commitment to our men and women searchingrving in our military to spending national security to do everything we can to bring them home. that's what we did in this case. >> the white house is sure to face renewed questions about why susan rice president obama's national security advisor told abc news last june that bergdahl served the united states with honor and distinction, unquote. if convicted of the two charges he faces of desertion and also misbehaving before the enemy he could face life in prison. most analysts expect in light of his cap tiveity a lesser would be handed out. >> three of the members may be reconnecting with their terror
network. what can you tell us about that this morning? >> my fox news colleague he chief intelligence correspondent katherine her raj said there is some evidence that at least three of the five taliban five have sought in some way to reconnect with their terror network with advice. none of the five have performed activities that would meet the strict criteria saying they are reengaging with the enemy. owe oo to you to an extreme weather alert. a deadly tornado rips through tulsa oklahoma. >> coming right on us. coming right at us. >> one person is dead and homes are destroyed. trees torn from the ground. that wasn't the only tornado. more hitting parts of the state and even one in arkansas. >> terrifying. maria molina has been chasing

kidnapped by her boyfriend. she is nowhere to be found. what police are saying about this bizarre case. >> they are calling it a wild goose chase and it's still going on. >> police located denise hus kisching i kins and she went off the radar again. huskins stopped cooperating and hired an attorney. the ordeal began when her boyfriend told police she was forcibly taken from their home with a ransom demand $8,500. he waited nearly 12-hours to call the cops. >> the statement that mr. kwijquinn provided was such an incredible story we initially had a hard time believing it and fon further investigation we were not able to substantiate any of the things he was saying. >> on tuesday the san francisco chronicle was e-mailed an audio
