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

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.

I feel so bad thinking about the kids and what terror they felt.

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

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

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!

I'll wait for the final report. The helicopter went down too fast. Even if you can't see where your landing, you would at least land slowly, not over 150mph.
