    The guy was a nutjob.

    He did have a great sign on the wall behind his desk that I can also still picture today;

    Interesting video by a YouTuber who aligns ATC-to-pilot communications with radar screen for all sorts of situations. Doesn't tell us much we didn't already know, but might be worth a look to those who wanted to hear the conversation.

    Put it this way, if you were born in the late 80's to mid 90's (so pretty much the bulk of the 20 and 30 somethings which is what most media is geared towards) you were very young and probably caught at best the tail end of peak of Jordan and then Kobe and Shaq were the basketball stars winng rings when you were a preteen/teenager. Or better comparison, all the people who say they were the perfect age to watch Brady, were also the perfect age to watch Kobe. Dominant in the early to mid 2000's and was the star who really helped transition eras in their respective sports.

    I need to move on from this because it’s bringing me down, but I’m tortured thinking about those last few seconds as he knew that his greatest treasure in the world would perish and not get to realize all the dreams that he obviously had for her. Sickening.

    That was my point, minus the goofy sarcasm I went for which, without the tone of my voice, read like I was attacking mosi (which as I told him in a follow up post, was not my intent).

    I'm the late 30s guy in a group of friends who are all early to late 40s. Their "sports fandom" lies more with the MJ era than the Kobe era. Anyone between my age and the kids in college today had Kobe as the repeat winner, all time great, generational talent in their formative years. LeBron is there too, but as someone else said quoting an NBAer (I think I saw it here). "If you wanted to play and have fun, play with LeBron. If you wanted to play and win, play with Kobe."

    I think the last few seconds are filled with 'oh f*ck, oh sh*t' and no relatively coherent thoughts to speak of'

    To me, while Kobe Bryant dying is a huge story, the bigger story in this case is 8 passengers dying, including three 13-yr olds. Yes, he died and his daughter died, but the fact that several other families including kids also got crushed in a flight he arranged should mute the hero-worship for now. Not saying it was Kobe's fault, but this is a tremendous tragedy way bigger than just Kobe.

    I can sort of understand the pilot deciding it was OK to take off, as the fog wasn't bad in that area and maybe it would clear further north. But LA police choppers weren't flying, so he had to have a plan B in mind. As he got half way and then 3/4's into the flight and was encountering heavy fog, and with 3 young kids as passengers, call it a day and land in a field somewhere. The plan A/"may clear" wasn't panning out, and there were plenty of chances to bail.

    This was a very experienced pilot, I just can't understand the risk he took.

    Not sure if mentioned upthread...

    The coach who died on the flight has a son who is a Red Sox scout. JJ Altobelli lost his father, stepmother and younger sister on that flight.

    Regards,
    Chris

    I’m so much more disturbed by this than Kobe dying. Both are tragic but this is impossible to ever get over. The families will ultimately learn to live with the death of the adults who perished, but it’s impossible to come to terms with these three passing.

    Bill had so much respect for him, I remember when he visited the Patriots, most players were in awe of him !
