Investigators reveal cause of Leicester City helicopter crash

The helicopter crash which killed the chairman of Leicester City and four other people was caused by a pin which had come loose in the tail rotor control mechanism, a report has revealed.

The Air Accidents Investigation Branch found that the pin had become disconnected, resulting in the helicopter becoming unstable and preventing the pilot from controlling it.

Leicester City chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, two of his staff Nursara Suknamai and Kaveporn Punpare, pilot Eric Swaffer and Mr Swaffer’s girlfriend Izabela Roza Lechowicz were killed when the aircraft crashed into a car park close to the King Power stadium on 27 October.
