    Terry Jones of Monty Python fame. He was 77.

    A real bummer for me. Might have to binge Flying Circus again in the near future.

    A lot of rich people die in private plane/helicopter crashes.

    Fire broke out and 5 people are dead.  That's a tragedy.  You want to risk your own life flying, then fine.  But you shouldn't convince other people you're a good enough pilot safe to ride with.

    Sorry, but it was a reckless and unnecessary risk.  I would never fly with anyone who hadn't been a commercial pilot.  These amateur pilots have the comparative skill level of a drunk driver.

    Here comes gut to blame the people who died while reminding us he’d never do something so stupid. He also never misses a chance to be the site douchebag.

    It’s not an amateur pilot. It was Kobe’s pilot who flew him all the time.

    Yes. Law enforcement announced 9 in their press conference. And scolded TMZ for reporting before the families could be notified.

    Sorry, it was initially reported he was flying.

    And go fuck yourself - a friend of mine's dad died flying his airplane.

    having flown several times in similar manners to how kobe did, and dozens of times offshore i can tell you that this pilot was more than adequately trained and certified to fly. the conditions were trash and ultimately led to him making an error that led to this, but the guy was trained well enough that i would have went with him. The more that comes out about this the more it looks to me like this crash would be similar to one of us driving 15 mph over the limit in a downpour, we all know we shouldn't and most times we don't, but every once in a while we are running late and push it. 9/10 times its no big deal, but 1/10 it's catastrophic.
