What We Know About Kobe’s Helicopter Crash

Kobe Bryant died yesterday in a helicopter crash along with his daughter and seven others. Here is what we know about the crash so far:

Foggy Conditions Were Present – During the time that the helicopter crashed, visibility was low enough that Los Angeles police had grounded their own helicopters.

Helicopter Had Flight Clearance – Despite the foggy weather conditions, the helicopter that Kobe was on was operating under “special visual flight rules,” as outlined in an update below.

The Investigation and Recovery Efforts Are Proving Difficult – The crash site is remote, so investigators are having trouble recovering the victim’s bodies and finding clues about what happened.

Helicopter Was Operating Under ‘Special Visual Flight Rules’

LiveATC.net has captured an air traffic control audio conversation with the pilot of Kobe’s aircraft, and found that it was operating under “Special Visual Flight Rules.”

What this means: A Special Visual Flight Rules (SVFR) clearance is something given to pilots that allows them to fly in worse weather conditions than typically allowed.
