Leonardo support helicopter crash investigation

Leonardo support helicopter crash investigation

Oct 29, 2018

Yeovil based helicopter manufacturer, Leonardo, say they will be supporting the Air Accidents Investigation Branch with the investigation into what caused the fatal helicopter crash at Leicester City’s ground on Saturday.

Five people on board the aircraft, including the owner Leicester City football club, were killed in the crash.

Witnesses say the helicopter seemed to go quiet before falling from the sky less than one minute after taking off from the football pitch inside the stadium.

It came down in a car park at the King Power Stadium.

No one on the ground was injured.

The helicopter was an AW169.

Leonardo says it’s the first time that a 169 has been involved in an accident.

The company also say the aircraft was built in Italy and not Yeovil.
