Helicopter Tour Crashes
In early December 2011, a couple on their honeymoon and another couple celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary were killed in a helicopter crash on a sightseeing flight headed towards Hoover Dam. The pilot was also killed.
Radar records show the plane shot up, turned left, plunged 800 feet, turned left again, and plummeted into a ravine. The plane burst into flames. Sundance Helicopters tour company operated the helicopter.
Mark Rosekind, a National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) member, told reporters that up until the crash, everything seemed fine. The pilot flew from McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas on a standard tour route to Hoover Dam. NTSB released the preliminary report of the accident and will continue the investigation over the coming months.
In 200, a Sundance-operated helicopter was involved in another tour crash. The pilot and six passengers were killed in the accident when the helicopter hit a canyon wall near the Grand Canyon.
Crashes of helicopters giving tours are not uncommon. Another tour helicopter crashed, also in early December 2011, killing the pilot and four tourists. The helicopter, operated by Blue Hawaiian Helicopters, smashed into a ridge on Molokai Island, Hawaii, and then burst into flames.
