I think they may ban helicopters from taking off from inside stadiums after this. Just way to risky.

Wasn’t the fault with the rear propeller though? Not sure the stadium part of it was an issue?

Liverpool Football Club owners John W Henry, Tom Werner and Mike Gordon issue statement

"It is with great sadness that we today offer our heartfelt sympathies to Leicester City after confirmation their owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha has tragically passed away.

"Our thoughts and condolences are extended to the families and loved ones of all those lost in this dreadful accident.

"The admiration we have for Vichai, his family and colleagues is as high as you can imagine, both professionally and personally.

"He was the ultimate custodian for the club he bought and then gracefully served. The Premier League title win, one of world football's all-time great stories, is of course the standout achievement. But beyond that, he led his club in a manner which all of us in this privileged position aspire to. Success on the pitch, allied with outstanding governance off it.

"Vichai is a great loss not just to his club but to the Premier League and English football as a whole.

"The thoughts of everyone connected with Liverpool Football Club are with our friends in Leicester and Thailand."

I was thinking more of it coming down in a area where there could have been a lot of people.

Yeah, could have been worse when you consider it that way.

Owners of football clubs are generally famous for being massively incompetent arseholes or ridiculously egotistical self publicists.

This guy won the premier league with Leicester City of all the teams, in this of Allah eras, and yet I'd wager that nobody reading this post new his name 48 hours ago.

A truly remarkable chairman.

I've long wondered if helicopter manufacturers have tried to develop an exterior airbag to cushion any kind of impact .

There's only one engine and no scope for gliding.

I did see a program once that showed a company that was developing one where the rotors came off in a emergency allowing for a parachute to be deployed

It's feasible over a certain height, after all they parachute tanks!

There is scope for gliding actually, well sort of. It uses Autorotation and all pilots are trained in it. It's possible to land safely without engine power, but probably not when the issue happens so close to the ground.

I've read about it and seen it demonstrated but I'm still not sure that I've got my head around how it works.

I suspect the issue with this one, given the apparent lack of height was exacerbated by full fuel tanks.

If a chopper goes into a spin then I can't see how a parachute would help as it would get tangled and be useless.

Nice idea but those rotors are going well too slowly for that to ever take off in the first place

They seemed to skip over the bit where the rotor smashed into the cable. It would also leave the helicopter without any control (less than with autorotation) drifting in the wind into God knows what. Interesting idea but does seem to have conceptual issues from a layman's perspective.

I see that rag is true to form by publishing a video of the crash.

Doesn't really show much apart from it spinning as it clears the stadium.

And I didn't see it on that site.

I have read some speculation that the police were using a drone to monitor crowds around the stadium as the helicopter was taking off and the drone hit the tail rotor causing the crash.

Got sent something similar myself today, If there’s any truth in that story I’m sure it will become public knowledge when they listen to the pilots transmission on the black box recorder.

On the video as the copter climbs vertically and just before it starts to spin you can see something either break apart from the tail rotor or something impacts with it.

Over an hour after the game finished, what crowds?

That was a rumour doing the rounds in the immediate aftermath - swiftly denied by the police and considered to be unhelpful bullshit.

There was an interesting article on the beeb site yesterday about when you can crash land a helicopter with a chance of not dieing and when you really can't; all relates to the tail rotor apparently and the stability it brings (or not).

Two days later all police drones have been grounded.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technolog...zpm1gvw4iP3zaA

Also some lad mentioned some incident with yobs near the ground, but police have denied the drone was in the air at the time, but lads said they saw it. Dont know how true these reports are.

Police are unlikely to lie, not like there is any history.of them doing it.
