Pilot error. Sometimes you just have to say "I'm sorry Mr. Bryant, but right now isn't a good time to fly".

Safety should've come first with how bad the fog was. This accident didn't have to happen. Very tragic.

It would be interesting to see this simulation using the actual fog pattern from that day.

The most painful thing is that nothing will bring them back. And that's what so unbearable about the untimely death of these people.

The pilot was clearly frustrated when he said, "okay, we'll continue holding". He knew the weather was bad.

It’s hard to believe that for minutes 15 no one said forget this shit, land this chopper.

I’m not even gonna “like” this video because there is nothing to like about it. It was such a sad tragedy for everyone. Rest in peace to everyone who died in the crash

That holding pattern of going in circles had to make him me dizzy just watching it.

I hope they find out the exact cause, and also that this is a reason to add black boxes to helicopters aswell.

It doesnt matter how many times yal make recreations of his flight pattern ..It was pilot error..!!! None one should of been flying in those conditions .NOBODY!!!

I have been trying to tell anyone who will listen that the last communication between the pilot and the air traffic controller was not heard by the pilot of the helicopter because he misunderstood the frequency that the prior controller told he to change to and that was 134.2 he repeated back "34.2" instead! It seems that he never was in contact with the hand-off between controllers in the final minutes of flight!

It was foggy. Kobe wanted to avoid car traffic .I rather spend two hours on a busy freeway than flying in dangerous conditions

Those people contributed to his death. I would feel dizzy going around like that.. special respect to pilots I just started realizing you guys do the most dangerous jobs

Its extremely horrifying to view the "path" of one's death.

No way such an experienced pilot would fall to the ground at that speed. It was either intentional or he passed out from so much pressure and anxiety.

A pilots heart attack is the only thing I can think of right now, other wise he could’ve landed somewhere
