Very sad.The Thai owner transformed the club and they won the EPL three years ago,reaching the quarter finals of the Champions League the following season.
RIP to all the victims of this tragic accident.

Sources close to the family say he WAS on board. I presume they had to let next of kin know before announcing details, but considering they showed video footage of the passengers walking to the centre circle and only one (security man?) walking back after take off, it would have been pretty easy to identify those on board
RIP to those who have lost their lives

The BBC has just reported that the Helicopter was in trouble very early on as it was seen to vear away fronm the crowd still milling round the Stadium and its likely the pilot tried to avoid them.

similar death to the chelsea vice chairman in october 96

Harding died at the age of 42 in a helicopter accident in October 1996, while flying back from a Chelsea match at Bolton Wanderers, along with the pilot and three passengers, including journalist John Bauldie and Raymond Deane. The crash of the Eurocopter AS355 Écureuil 2 aircraft took place at night and in poor weather, near Middlewich, Cheshire. An investigation by the Air Accidents Investigation Branch found that the pilot did not have the experience or qualifications necessary to safely pilot by instruments in such conditions.[5]

Leicester owner helicopter crash: Investigators claim aircraft ‘did not respond to pilot commands’
The Independent Jack de Menezes,The Independent 22 ore fa


Investigators are looking specifically at the tail rotor control system of the helicopter that crashed and killed Leicester City owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha last month.

UK Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) claim that the aircraft did not respond to pilot commands in a preliminary report, and started to turn right “contrary to the pilot’s left pedal command”.

The accident on 27 October, which also claimed the lives of four others onboard, continues to be investigated after Mr Srivaddhanaprabha’s private helicopter crashed outside an individual Power Stadium roughly 40 seconds after takeoff.

Investigators are yet to determine why the pilot lost control with the AAIB stating that the “cause of the apparent loss of yaw control has yet to be determined”, but added that “investigation of the tail rotor system is being carried out as a priority”.

Footage of the incident appears to show that sections of the tail rotor may have fallen off in mid-air.

The aircraft reached an altitude of approximately 430ft before plummeting to the ground in a car park next to the Stadium and was “rapidly engulfed in an intense post-impact fire”, the AAIB said.

The Leicester City owner, employees Nursara Suknamai and Kaveporn Punpare, pilot Eric Swaffer and his partner, Izabela Roza Lechowicz – who was also a professional pilot – were all killed in the accident.

we have had a number of chopper crashes in NZ over the years, two recently, both from the same family.. Rotor blades are many a fault, but in the latest crash, it is believed a pair of overall's was sucked out of the chopper door, and wrapped around the tail rotor, causing it to spin out of control and crash, killing all on board
