    In November a good friend and old roommate passed away unexpectedly and when I found out I felt nothing. Today I was at the gym and saw "Kobe dead in helicopter crash". Every hair on my body was standing up, I had goosebumps and felt sick.

    I've always clowned people for being so upset when a celebrity dies but Kobe is THE influence of my life the last 23 years and without him I'd be a different person entirely.


    d---. No words except for the rambling above

    I don’t know Kobe at all, or cared about the sport, but I give respect to legends that are well known no matter what sport they play. RIP

    I can't get over this. Feel horrible for his family. I can't believe he won't be there when he's inducted into the NBA Hall of Fame :emoji_slight_frown:

    This is a reminder that holis are the most unsafe form of travelling. And should be avoided

    its weird that they didnt advance the tech for it to be safer

    Apparently the FBI is assisting the investigation into the crash which is...odd.

    Seems like helicopters are fairly safe. Less than 1% of 100,000 trips have an accident

    the weather seems like the biggest factor

    While flying on a large airliner is the safest way to fly by far – there was only one death on a scheduled commercial flight in the U.S. in 2018 – helicopters have a better safety record than the smaller fixed-wing aircraft used in general aviation, and twin-engine helicopters like the S-76 are among the most reliable.

    The fatal accident rate for helicopters in the U.S. was 0.82 per 100,000 flight hours in 2019, according to the U.S. Helicopter Safety Team, with 24 accidents claiming 55 lives.

    That compares to a rate of 1.029 accidents per 100,000 flight hours in 2018 in general aviation, the most recent year for which figures are available from the NTSB.

    However, personal flying accounted for a disproportionate share of fatal helicopter accidents in the U.S. from 2009 to 2019, according to a study by the U.S. Helicopter Safety Team. Private use accounted for 3% of all flight hours in that period but 22% of fatal accidents.
