The photos, taken in the aftermath of the crash by a witness show the flaming wreckage of the helicopter after it plunged 1,000 feet into a hillside on Sunday.

The witness said he saw ‘helicopter parts flying everywhere’ after the aircraft emerged from ‘out of the fog’ and exploded in a ‘huge fireball’.

Before the crash, Pilot Ara Zobayan had told air traffic controllers that he was climbing to avoid a cloud layer.

On Monday, an accident investigator said the pilot asked and received special clearance to fly in heavy fog just minutes before the crash and was flying at 1,400 feet when he went south and then west.

Authorities also revealed that there was no black box on board but instead an iPad which was used for flight itinerary.

Pilot Zobayan asked for air traffic controllers to provide ‘flight following’ radar assistance but was told the craft was too low for that assistance, Jennifer Homendy of the National Transportation Safety Board said.

About four minutes later, ‘the pilot advised they were climbing to avoid a cloud layer,’ she said. ‘When ATC asked what the pilot planned to do, there was no reply. Radar data indicates the helicopter climbed to 2,300 feet and then began a left descending turn.’ The wreckage was found at 1,085 feet.

Homendy said last radar contact was around 9.45am. Two minutes later, someone on the ground called 911 to report the crash.

The helicopter, which left Santa Ana in Orange County, south of Los Angeles, shortly after 9 a.m., was heading to the Mamba Academy near Thousand Oaks, California when the chopper went down in Calabasas, about 30 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles.

All nine people on board the aircraft, including the NBA legend and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna died.

NTSB investigators went to the crash site in Calabasas on Monday to collect evidence. ‘The debris field is pretty extensive,’ Homendy said. ‘A piece of the tail is down the hill,’ she said. ‘The fuselage is on the other side of that hill. And then the main rotor is about 100 yards beyond that.’

The witness who saw the helicopter come down, and took the pictures of the flaming wreckage, told The Sun that: ‘One of the helicopter doors landed about 10 to 15 feet away from us. Helicopter parts were flying everywhere. There was very little left of the helicopter.’

Some experts suggested that the pilot might have gotten disoriented because of fog but Homendy said investigating teams would look at everything from the pilot’s history to the engines. ‘We look at man, machine and the environment,’ she said. ‘And weather is just a small portion of that.’

What Is Cork?

If you ever wondered how cork came into being, let us put you at ease. It is a 100% natural, organic material composed of the bark of the oak tree (Quercus suber).

Most of us are familiar with cork, as it’s used in all kinds of products, from wine corks to shoes, purses, bulletin boards, flooring and more.

Besides being an incredibly versatile material, cork is a natural and sustainable material. Cork is a biodegradable material, in addition, it’s easily recyclable. It’s impermeable, elastic, and buoyant, so it can be used in a variety of applications. In addition, it’s naturally fire retardant.

Cork also makes great insulation for homes and it works well for soundproofing and thermal insulation. It’s also hypo-allergic, making it a safer alternative to petrochemical based-insulation products.

Cork does not absorb water or liquids which is why it’s been used for centuries to float fishermen’s nets and as stoppers for wine bottles.

Cork Tiles.

A cork tile is a product that is ground, processed into sheets and baked in a kiln to produce tiles that serve as flooring for offices, light commercial locations, and residences.

Cork flooring is a good insulator, naturally moisture-resistant, it’s a good option when thinking about falling and impact. Cork tiles come in a variety of colors which aids in the design and creative applications.
