    Okay naysayers....
    The evidence is overwhelming that Scott Daehlin The “eyewitness” is a Crisis Actor.
    Daehlin was arrested both 4 weeks before and now again 4 weeks after the Kobe Bryant helicopter crash.
    Now we find out Mr Daehlin was living in his GMC Safari in the Church parking lot!

    to those believing it wasnt his helicopter in the crash photos, yes, the copter does look different because the paint melted off from the crash. but that was the same helicopter.

    The crash didn't have to happen Kobe should and could have used SUV services that fateful. Why was there a need to rush to a child's basketball game, poor gigi and poor everyone else aboard that doomed helicopter, Kobe should had flown alone that morning if he was so eager to fly period plain and simple.

      @NSHx2 Hunter I'm a strong believer that Kobe insisted on flying to that game by helicopter. No matter the weather conditions against the pilots wishes , or else He would not have even ordered that pilot or helicopter for that day.......kobe endangered his daughters life but and allof those aboard.

      You have no idea what you're talking about. He was not eager to fly, he flew to dodge L.A. traffic. If he had been told it wasn't safe, he wouldn't have. Do you think he would've jeopardize the life of his daughter, not even speaking of himself and the others, his daughter?? No, he wouldn't have. He had no idea it was dangerous. He trusted the pilot and the pilot should've said, it wasn't safe and I'm sure he would've listened...

    My condolences goes to the Vanessa Bryant and her three daughters. RIP Kobe Bryant 1978-2020. Aircraft safety must be enforced to ensure the decreasing of death fatalities including black box installation and TAWS installation by the signature of President Donald Trump. Good video 👍.

    I believe this pilot got disoriented in the fog. Sometimes up, down, left , right could all look the same when flying. When you 30,000 ft up you could recover probably. Below 5,000 ft it’s almost impossible to recover.

    Almost the same conditions that killed Stevie Ray Vaughn. Congressman Thomas Hale Boggs was killed because he was allowed to fly in a plane that had no wing deicers in icy weather, The list goes on and on. I think the FAA needs to wise up to the realities of flying in limited weather conditions. Over 35% of all air fatalities are due to weather. Enough of this. The tower should have shut this down before it started. Regs need to change.
