    Helicopters are inherently the riskiest aircraft. Most risks are adequately mitigated, but there is always the chance that the right mix of events will lead to catastrophe. My profession is helicopter maintenance, for 13 years.

    "Aviation in itself is not inherently dangerous. But to an even greater degree
    than the sea, it is terribly unforgiving of any carelessness, incapacity or neglect."
    — Captain A. G. Lamplugh, British Aviation Insurance Group, London. 1930's

    I believe it was his private helicopter. He leaves behind 4 children and his wife. He also holds multiple Lakers NBA records. RIP Kobe Bryant.

    Yes its sad. A tragic loss indeed😿

    Those who abuse power, are nothing but scumbags!
     The challenge of power is how to use it and not abuse it. When you abuse it, it reverses on you and it hurts you.The abuse of power that seems to create the most unhappiness is when a person uses personal power to get ahead without regards to the welfare of others, people are obsessed with it. You can take a nice person and turn them into a slob, into an insane being, craving power, destroying anything that stands in their way.

    That makes the loss even tougher on his family. RIP Kobe and Gianna (his daughter).

    It's a sad loss and what is worst is hearing that the helicopter shouldn't have flown since visibility didn't reach the minimum requirement for flight. Not saying that is the cause of the crash but if it was then it's the pilot error which would make this something that could have been avoided.

    The initial report on Sunday was 4 souls. Wife and kids were fine. Then 5 souls. Now 9 souls? Now wife and kids perished? What? Edit: Oh, do you mean the brother's wife? How can there be so much confusion about this? What happened to their flight plan? What happened to their radio communications? Usually when you open a VFR flight plan, you communicate the number of souls on board. What kind of fly-by-night operation were they running?

    One person reported that it appeared to have engine troubles, but circumstantial evidence makes it sound like CFIT. Fog was dense, they were searching for a safe route out of there, they ascended rapidly at the end (would not have been possible if the engines had failed), but crashed into mountainous terrain.

    Regardless of why and how..it happened..and it's sad.
     
    I didn't like Kobe's politics or his team..but that doesn't diminish the loss of life and the heartbreak friends and family feel.
     
    He was a phenomenal player...a philanthropist ....a decent human (who doesn't err? Who doesn't sin? I know I do).....
     
    RIP, Kobe. I pray your family finds solace and strength...healing and renewed joy...

    The confusion is not to do with flight plans etc., it's shoddy journalism with almost zero fact-checking, just a rush to publicize and sensationalize to make more money or to fit an agenda, which is typical of the MSM for the last few years.

    ^ This.
     
    Even the actual news sites claimed they could not release info until 100% confirmed, but sites like TMZ and others rushed to bring the news out because the 1st company to bring it out gets the most $$.
