ATC recording and flight track of fatal Bryant Crash
 

 

Many technical terms in use for people not familiar with aviation, however, it seems the pilot of Kobe's helicopter was adept and familiar with the airspace. The pilot was using major highways in the area as a means of navigation to the Mamba Academy. For the most part, it sounds like business as usual for the pilot and ATC.

Whatever happened to cause the crash happened pretty quickly. This video is sped up a bit so doesn't reflect real-time operation of Kobe's chopper, but essentially, the pilot (due to whatever reasons) stopped responding to ATC for about 3 minutes before unfortunately crashing.

NTSB and the helicopters manufacturer will produce the black box from the crash site. This will show all inputs and decisions the pilot made leading to the crash, as well as the mechanical state of the helicopter and any potential failures.

Unfortunately accidents in aviation do happen, and it hurts to have lost someone so important to our culture that has bridged the gap on our behalf the world over. I'm providing this as a way for some of yall to hopefully make sense of what happened, and maybe as a means of closure. I do not see foul play here: just God calling one of his soldiers home. Take care yallimageR.I.P Kobe#24image

CALABASAS, Calif. — Jerry Kocharian, 62, was standing outside the Church in the Canyon drinking coffee when he heard a helicopter flying unusually low and seeming to struggle.

“It wasn’t sounding right, and it was real low,” Kocharian said. “I saw it falling and spluttering. But it was hard to make out as it was so foggy.”

The helicopter vanished into the sheet of fog, then there was a boom and “a big fireball,” he said.

“No one could survive that.”

Kocharian was among several who watched as Kobe Bryant’s chopper crashed in Calasbasas on Sunday morning, k*lling nine people, including the NBA legend and daughter Gianna.

The crash occurred shortly before 10 a.m. near Las Virgenes Road, south of Agoura Road, according to a watch commander for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
pilot was flying low and it was foggy. You can hear the SoCal airtraffic control warn him about his elevation twice but there’s no response

ATC was not warning the pilot of elevation in particular, ATC was warning the pilot he was too low for ATC to provide flight following services..

Without getting too technical, helicopters normally don't interact with ATC the same way airliners do, due to the fact they naturally fly at lower altitudes and for much shorter lengths than airliners. Basically, a helicopter pilot will tell ATC where he expects to go, and they let him go from there with minimal updates or ATC calls. ATC can provide flight following services, which unlike how helicopters normally interact with ATC, treats them like an airliner essentially with radar tracking, traffic avoidance, etc.

Now, there is an odd part in this video, the time that you're speaking of but for the wrong reason. Kobe's pilot put a particular code in the helicopters radio that would usually a*sume flight following services, which is why ATC was asking for his intentions and mentioned he was too low for flight following services since radar can only pick up objects at a certain altitude depending on how far away that object is to follow the flight...

My guess is that the pilot intended on requesting flight following services, considering the weather and vip onboard, but some type of mechanical emergency forced his attention... Could be more to it but we will not be able to tell until the black box is analyzed; basically to rule out deliberate sabotage, which while possible, I don't believe to be the case here.
But to say the pilot was warned of elevation by ATC is incorrect, was a bit more complicated than that.

"God calling one of his soldiers home"



yall gotta quit this bullsh*t, stop praising a "God" that allows young girls to die in a horrific way, where kids get s*xually abused and starved

Kobe, his daughter and the rest of the people who died deserved better than this

fu*k your God and fu*k your prayers
