The co-pilot's diary has been found in the wreckage of the Helios Boeing 737-300 that crashed in Greece two weeks ago, and it's expected to document problems with the aircraft and the airline. "[My father] once told me that if any of it ever got out the company would close," the co-pilot's son, Yiannis Charalambous, said at his father's funeral last week, when the diary was still missing. The ongoing investigation has also determined that four people were in the cockpit when the airplane crashed, contradicting earlier reports that only the co-pilot and a male flight steward, who was trying to control the aircraft, were found there. Recent reports said the co-pilot and another unidentified male were in the cockpit, along with two female flight attendants. All 121 on board died in the crash, which has been blamed on a loss of pressurization in the cabin.
