Helicopter carrying Kobe flew in dangerous foggy conditions, investigators say

The pilot of the Sikorsky S-76B helicopter that crashed near Los Angeles, killing Kobe Bryant and eight others, told air traffic controllers in his last radio message that he was climbing to avoid a cloud layer, investigators said. Air traffic records show that the helicopter looped around several times and rapidly decelerated and accelerated during its chaotic final flight.
