  1. The ‘limo-esque’ Sikorsky S-76B helicopter which crashed on Sunday

    Kobe Bryant’s helicopter was a Sikorsky S-76B model built in 1991 which experts have compared to a ‘limousine’.

    According to flight records, the aircraft had completed an eight-minute journey to pick up passengers less than half an hour before embarking on its final trip.

    Investigators say the helicopter has a black box and will be examining its maintenance records and those of the owner and operator.

    The aircraft in question, with the tail number N72EX, was owned by Island Express Holding Corp., which is based in Fillmore, California.

    According to the website Helis.com, it was previously owned and operated by the state of Illinois.

    Former pilot Kurt Deetz, who said he had flown Bryant in the very helicopter which crashed yesterday, said it was in ‘fantastic’ condition’.

    Speaking to the LA Times, he said the owners had a ‘very good maintenance program’.

    ‘The likelihood of a catastrophic twin engine failure on that aircraft – it just doesn’t happen,’ he said, suggesting that poor weather conditions may have caused the crash.

    Comparing the helicopter to a Cadillac, Deetz said the S-76B was a ‘limo-esque’ model which was regarded by celebrity passengers as superior to its sister model, the S-76A.

    Bryant was a frequent passenger in the helicopter, using it to fly to Lakers home games.

    Justin Green, an aviation attorney in New York who flew helicopters in the Marine Corps, said pilots can become disoriented in low visibility, losing track of which direction is up.

    Green said a pilot flying an S-76 would be instrument-rated, meaning that person could fly the helicopter without relying on visual cues from outside.

    Sikorsky began manufacturing the helicopters in 1977 and boasts that the $13million model has ‘more than 7.4 million hours of safe, successful flight’.

    However, it has previously been involved in fatal crashes in Canada, Turkey, Estonia and the North Sea.

    Dense fog was linked to a 2017 disaster in which a Sikorsky S-76 crashed in the outskirts of Istanbul, killing all seven people on board.

    The company was sold to defense giant Lockheed Martin in 2015.

    A Sikorsky statement said yesterday that the company was in contact with investigators and ‘stands ready to provide assistance and support to the investigative authorities and our customer’.

    ‘We extend our sincerest condolences to all those affected by today’s accident,’ the statement said.

    The National Transportation Safety Board said it was dispatching an 18-person team to California to help with the investigation into the crash.

    The board typically issues a preliminary report within about 10 days that will give a rough summary of what investigators have learned. A ruling on the cause can take a year or more.
