  2. Bad decision to fly in that type of weather why the pilot didn't tell Kobe today not a good day to fly just being honest just be honest when u can and cannot but a bird up in the air with a celebrity

  3. It doesn’t matter how experienced he was, once he got blinded by the thick fog, all that experience went to the trash!

  4. I’m not a pilot but he should’ve stop speeding and lowered down any where …because I wouldn’t care , it’s death vs life here smh , PILOT FAULT

  5. Flying in fog is bad enough. But there is NO excuse for not having a terrain avoidance warning system when flying in an around mountains.

  6. I hope it over tomorrow and I love Trump he the best president we have ever had. What a bunch of crap the demoracts started wasting our money on this. He was doing his job. I am sick of these demoracts , it a crime to harass people through they go after him he should due them for being lairs. That Adam s schiff mist of been a lot of money from billionaires to go after him. Trump is doing baby wonderful job for out country. God bless him foe putting up with this crap.

  8. Why the helicopters remains show a white and light blue tail of the helicopter and just recently the helicopters remains was brought to arizona and it was a black and red helicopter??? WHY??? Aki hay Gato enserrado…. 🙁

  9. For all the pilots out there… Why is it that helicopters don't have some type of automatic pilot where if a pilot gets stuck in clouds they can flip a switch and go to auto pilot and then hover And switch over to instruments and get in touch with the tower so the tower can essentially talk them down or out of there or whatever. The idea that an approved method is to dive down and BANK left and floor it doesn't seem to be a great approach. Isn't there some procedure when you're flying along and you get stuck in a cloud that you weren't really ready for why not just freeze and hover and then figure it out ?

  10. A lot of people who works for celebrities in this case an athlete such as Kobe it seems their expertise gets tossed out the window in efforts to please or appease their employers Unfortunately in this situation it becomes deadly. With that said if he was the experienced pilot then why did he even fly out on a day when the conditions and forecast predicted and reported fogs.?Who ultimately made that decision to do so? . Who has.the authority or give instructions and information to private pilots during flights? Prior to take on a private helicopter flights who is in charge of briefing the pilots on weather conditions prior.to take off?

  11. I am with the NBC Aviation Analyst on that question. Why? Why would Kobe as a responsible father put his daughter and his friends through that. It was irresponsible on his part. This was just a junior girls basketball game, not that important. If you have to get special permission to fly, maybe its a sign that you shouldn’t do it. The wife should have advised against it.

  12. They must try to check the health history condition of the pilot May be the pilot having hurt attack because suddenly he don’t communicate to the tower and he keep going down like that way because if you look at the video the helicopter rolling in the sky it’s like no pilot inside

  13. I believe that at the last minute they all inside the hellicopter realized about the crashlanding was "Inevitable or unavoidable" and the pilote began to avoid getting crashed on highway or residential area to keep the casualties as minimum as possible. That is the reason why the sharp turn was all about. It is not matter of being disoriented. The pilot was trying to have crash landing on an isolated land away from vehicles and people. He just did not care what kind of landscape it is for the sake of minimizing the casualties. Something suddenly just went wrong and brought them for crash landing. This was just an accident and no bodies fault. God bleass their Souls – they all look innocent and adorable individuals.

  14. So.. pretty much the heli took a dive after the left steep turn… something must have happened to the pilot.. makes no sense to speed up in dense fog and dive at the same time. They should calculate the terminal velocity of a falling helicopter that size and weight and see what are the chances the pilot just had a heart attack in mid flight

  15. before the turn he was flying low and slow with a low ceiling. Too low for flight following. Sounds like maybe he was scud running then he completely lost visuals and tried to climb out of it. Then it appears he flew into the cloud ceiling and became disoriented. A sudden VFR to IMC switch that he wasn’t prepared for, and probably was rusty on. Just because he was IFR certified doesn’t mean he was practicing IFR or current. Plus add the stress of a high profile client, kids, etc. Plus No Terrain awareness system and no copilot. Big recipe for disaster.

  16. In most years, nearly half of all weather-related accidents happen as a result of continued VFR flight into instrument meteorological conditions (IMC)…and sadly, the vast majority of those accidents are fatal.

  17. This could not have happend if they all would have took a car or a van they would not have died 😭😭😭😭😭😭

  18. Think about this fact. The helicopter was 1991 model, state of Illinois
    bought from Lockheed Martin for $13 million. In 2003 they sold the
    helicopter in auction for $500K. Now just do the math. Its 12 years old
    in 2003 and only had 3700 hours when crashed, the helicopter was 29
    years old. When the helicopter was sold at auction it must of been lot
    less hours. 3700 hours on helicopter is not a lot of hours taken in
    consideration it 29 years old. Now this is going to get some of you to
    think how much sense you have. $13 million for the helicopter 12 years
    old and sold for 500K. Don't you think there might be something wrong
    with the helicopter when it was sold in auction for only 500K? Now I
    don't have Blue Book on helicopter but that helicopter should have sold
    for at least $3 million or maybe $4million if there was nothing wrong
    with it. That Helicopter was sold for way too cheap at 500K, there is
    something wrong about that deal or something wrong with helicopter.

  20. Can someone explain why they show his private helicopter decked out in black mamba paint job with a nike swish and then there is this one? Did they not take his private helicopter? Is the news messing and mixing everything up? 😵 MY BRAIN HURTS!

  21. A better question would be why the heck are they telling him that there's other aircraft that are out flying too. And N72EX and N76 are two very different helicopters.

  22. I totally think kobes helicopter decimated the circling slow hovering helicopter with no black box no transponder and as of RN no pilot. Except for the 10 sec. Video which portrays someone jumping out

  23. The helicopter was owned by Charter service Island Express company they already had two crashes before where everybody passed away need to start there… Then Air Traffic Control was given the pilot special virtual flight Rule clearance that means they gave him the okay to fly… I fly an airplane and everybody keeps an iPad on a helicopter or an airplane even in the fog that iPad tells you where the mountains are tells you when you have bad weather where are the cell phone towers are and where the high tension wires are… you have people on the ground taking a video with their cell phones as he was hovering around he could have easily came down landed in a field or even on a highway… with a helicopter or airplane in foggy weather you can get very disoriented and climbing up through the clouds it's possible that you could go inverted that means that the helicopter could have went upside down and plummeted to the ground … if that was the case you have seconds to react most likely you could never recover from this horrible accident that's why he was reaching speeds of 185 miles per hour…RIP to everybody that perished on that day…🙏🙏🙏🙏

  24. Investigators: If you work hard,you will find the answer, this is complex,but be professional,after 911, America never be the same,camuflage is different than mistake or conflicts of interest, anything is possible.

  25. That’s not even close to what happened. It will come out in court and I maybe an expert witness on it. There’s anomaly with the 76B no ones even come close to recognizing.

  26. i cryed when he died😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

  27. The real question should be why did this? I just dont think that you all are looking in the right places to find the clues or evidence of what really happen I show my full support to the Bryant family and the rest of the deceased I also want to show my appreciation for kobe by saying that he was a very influential man and doing what he loved rest in peace kobe I hope you see everyone you have lost and loved

  28. Exactly why they decided to fly why the pilot didn’t stop the fly when he saw the weather in this site Ventura county or calabasas it was bad I blame the pilot sorry but true

  29. NOW WE WANT THE FULL INVESTIGATION, ALL PHONE CALLS AND DATA FROM THE PILOT AND THE HIRE HELICOPTER COMPANY FROM THE LAST 10 YEARS SINCE KOBE STARTED USING THESE COMPANYS. SOMETHING NOT RIGHT HERE.

  30. Did anyone notice? The registration number of the tail shows N72EX. Kobe Bryant"s chopper was painted black with the emblem MAMBA and the same registration number. WAKE UP people! 2 different helicopters with SAME registration number?

  31. they said his helicopter banked left before crashing, and that there was no engine failure, but they did not say that the tail blades didn't fail, helicopters tend to bank left when the tail blades cuts out, the pilot was also moving forward as ascending, which would have made it near impossible to recover while spinning. you may not see this but this is what most likely caused the crash.

  32. The pilot killed them all. CURSE HIM!!!!!! RIP KOBE AND HIS DAUGHTER AND OTHER WERE ON BOARD EXCEPT THAT STUPID PILOT!!!😟🙏🙏🙏😢

  33. When people blame pilot but no concern if he’s ok 🙁
    RIP Kobe and Gianna. And idk if pilot died but if he did rest in peace❤️❤️❤️
    Everyone on that helicopter were legends. ❤️❤️❤️ sorry I mean ARE 🥺🔥

    LEGENDS NEVER DIE 🥺🔥
