Bride Killed in Helicopter Crash

In flight film of crash...

https://www.liveleak.com/view?i=248_1499297836


Edit to add: As the in-flight film had been posted I thought there were a final accident report on this incident. Apparently not. From the LiveLeak link here is what is claimed to be the background of the flight film...

Translated:
The small camera that was inside the helicopter that carried the bride Rosemeire Nascimento Silva, 32, for her wedding in São Lourenço da Serra,
in Greater São Paulo, was found in the woods only four days after the fall by a Brother of the bride. He was looking for personal belongings of
Rosemeire and the alliance of their other brother, Silvano Nascimento da Silva, who accompanied the bride on the flight. In addition to the two,
the pilot and a photographer were killed. It was this camera that recorded the entire route - from takeoff in the hangar of the company owner of
the aircraft, HCS Táxi Aéreo, in Osasco, also in the metropolitan region of São Paulo, until the fall. The small camera was taken by photographer
Nayla Cristina Neves Lousada, who was also on the plane, and had been hired by Rosemeire to register the celebration.
The videos in this report contain excerpts from the accident. ATTENTION: the images are strong.
Nayla was seated next to the pilot of the Robinson 44 helicopter, prefix PR-TUN , and fixed, during the flight of just over 25 minutes, the camera
in front of her, facing the bride and her brother. They were both sitting in the back seats of the helicopter. Nayla was six months pregnant and had
two daughters, too. In the final 5 minutes of flight, when pilot Peterson Pinheiro begins to have difficulties controlling the aircraft, performing maneuvers,
Nayla frequently turns the equipment, showing the navigation panel. The images also depict the scenario of strong mist and little visibility of the external environment.

When Nayla's camera was found, with at least five videos and 331 photos of the entire flight, the Civil Police, the Institute of Criminology of the Secretariat
of Security of São Paulo and Cenipa had already done an on-the-spot investigation and had not found the The appliance.
The content was delivered in full to the Civil Police and to the Aeronautics, which are still carrying out expertise in the material. The São Lourenço Police
Station has an investigation into the case still in progress, which establishes guilty homicide and runs under the secrecy of Justice.

The images captured by the camera that the photographer Nayla carried will help pinpoint causes of the tragedy. At the request of the G1 , Aeronautical
Reserve Colonel Luís Claudio Lupoli, who acted as a researcher at the Center for Research and Prevention of Aeronautical Accidents (Cenipa), analyzed the
video and pointed out some possible pilot errors in the aircraft's handling due to apparent conflict Of use of control of flight of way of visual and also
by instruments. After analyzing the images, Colonel Lupoli understands that it is possible that the pilot did not have knowledge to operate the helicopter,
a Robinson R44 Raven II, prefix PR-TUN, under instrument conditions, as it makes sudden movements to try to stabilize the aircraft.
The crashed aircraft could only be used, according to its official record, for operations under visual conditions, where the pilot uses visual references of
soil, horizon and time, not just instruments on board.

What a tragic and stupid, unnecessary waste of life on what should have been the happiest day.

I have always hated flying weddings due to the pressure, interfering relatives, photographers etc. I'd love to know where this was and what the forecast was. The pilot got airborne for some reason, when common sense said no. What bloody tragic waste.

You see footage like this and it helps you to understand why our industry is so heavily regulated.

Fuel cell apparently did its job, but sadly to no avail in this instance.

The notion that onboard video will deter pilots from flying irresponsibly or illegally isn't borne out in this flight.

I would imagine that the pilot felt the need to press on in bad weather as he had to deliver the bride to the ceremony, it appears that he was watching the GPS and "flying the dot" to his desired location, a football field, when he lost control and hit the trees. Does anyone know what that warning tone means in a Raven II ?

You can tell that from a shaky GoPro vid that barely features the instruments??

Having been in a 206 crash and walking away from it I never take anything for granted anymore.

Poor bugger had plenty of chances to lower the lever, get back into VMC and turn around.
Commercial pressure/getthereitis on a possible low time guy.

His passenger referred to him using it (in Portuguese), he appeared to be watching it intently, and he found his desired destination (a football field) in IMC conditions.
