These are some of the German pupils who died on the Germanwings flight, which crashed in the Alps, killing all 150 passengers. The teenagers had been on a week-long exchange trip to Barcelona and were flying home when the plane crashed on Tuesday morning. They are pictured in December, when their Spanish counterparts visited Germany as part of the exchange trips between the two schools 

Just a few months later the 16-strong class at Joseph-Koenig-Gymnasium school in Haltern-am-See, an English speaking grammar, went to visit their Spanish counterparts in Barcelona for a week-long exchange.

Yesterday, after a successful week, they were flying home with their two Spanish language teachers from Barcelona to Dusseldorf when the Germanwings flight lost altitude suddenly, and fell from the sky, plummeting towards the mountainside at a speed of almost 500mph.

All passengers on board were killed and searched continue today for the second black box on the plane.

Two teachers who were with the class, named as Sonja Cercek and Stefanie T by German newspaper Bild, also perished.
