Air Traffic Control Audio Recording and Flight Track of Kobe Bryant's Helicopter Crash
Air Traffic Control Audio Recording and Flight Track of Kobe Bryant's Helicopter Crash.
ATC recording and Flight track of Kobe's Sikorsky helicopter crash have been released. The video shows that the Pilot was flying normally, before he started flying to low then crashed, after not responding to radar control.
The moment the helicopter crashes is where it disappears from the radar. You can hear ATC telling the pilot many times he was flying too low, but the pilot had already stopped responding few minutes early.
They said the pilot was following a 1200 code, which means he wasn't responding to radar controller.
One thing to note is that the video is sped up, in real time the helicopter was in the air around 40 minutes before it crashed.
RIP Kobe Bryant, his daughter, and the 7 others who died in the tragic crash.
