It's amazing that they can identify the cause of any plane crash, but they do..

How do you determine that something became disconnected from something else when the bloody thing exploded into a gigantic fireball.

I'm sure there were plenty of things which were no longer still connected.

Looks like you are right, geasing issues imply sub standard maintenance regime

Can’t have been sabotaged as it flew in shortly before the crash. Someone would have noticed if anyone had been on the middle of the pitch going at it with a spanner and pair of wire cutters.

The maintenance team really have blood on their hands here, should not have happened

Yeah, normally the old boy put the old boiler suit on and did the maintenance himself, but the day before the final flight he had an argument in Halford's about the price of WD40 and thought, 'fuck it, I'll give it a miss this week'.

I think we all need to calm down and wait for branded to deliver his verdict.

Cheers! Oh well.

Suspicious.

You'd think they could afford to maintain their helicopter, which would pick up a gradual deterioration in such linkages.

Unless the deterioration wasn't gradual. Possibly due to a design fault, possibly not...

"The helicopter crash which killed Leicester City's owner and four others was caused by the tail rotor disconnecting from the pilot's pedals, investigators have found.

Thai billionaire Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, employees Nursara Suknamai and Kaveporn Punpare, pilot Eric Swaffer and his co-pilot partner, Izabela Roza Lechowicz, were all killed in the accident on October 27.

A report by the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) has now found the aircraft came crashing down after a lever controlling the movement of a tail rotor disconnected from the mechanism."

Yeah, that'll do it.

What about something for the others who died?

Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha: Leicester City chairman to be honoured with statue

Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha
Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha bought Leicester in 2010 and led them to the Premier League title in 2015-16
Leicester City will erect a statue of late chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha at King Power Stadium following his death in a helicopter crash last month.

Srivaddhanaprabha and four others were killed in the crash on 27 October.

His son Aiyawatt made the announcement in a souvenir programme for Saturday's Premier League game with Burnley.

"We will never be able to repay what he did for us - for me as his son, us as his family, everyone connected to Leicester City and beyond," he said.

"We are committed to honouring his memory and upholding his legacy.

"Our continued growth as a club, our state-of-the-art new training ground and our planned stadium expansion will help realise his vision for Leicester City."

Further details regarding the commissioning and the statue's positioning will be released in due course.

Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha added the statue would be a "permanent and fitting tribute to the man that made it all possible".

"He will forever be in our hearts. He will never be forgotten," he added.

Leicester will wear shirts embroidered with their former owner's name against Burnley.

A special video will be played before their game, which kicks off at 15:00 GMT on Saturday, while fans have also planned a tribute march to the ground.

Tributes left at the stadium are to be moved to a memorial area.

The club will present supporters at the game with scarves, pin badges, clap banners and a special matchday programme as commemorative gifts

Freeze the Leicester 5.

Bit late now, but a bit of forward planning here may have bought them a few minutes to thaw out and escape.

I’ve done a minutes silence at the exact time it happened every day and I will continue to do so until the government decide to hold a full enquiry into the role of the police in this “ accident “

Justice for the 5 ✊

Signed the condolences book.
Very moving seeing all the flowers.

Quite a lot of grief when Matthew Harding died in a copter crash wasn't there.

Re: Leicester city owners in helicopter crash?
"I don't recall all this outpouring of grief when the last chairman to buy a premier league/first division trophy died."

Indeed. Was there much when 'Deadly' Doug Ellis of Villa died recently?Mixed record, but they did win trophies under him. Old school, not a glamorous football man... but I only recall a small mention on the BBC website? And, for better or worse, he was Knighted.

I can't imagine what honours are going to be laid on the Leicester man at BBC Sports Personality Of The Year. Dan Roan can sit it out in the pub, that's for sure.

Modern society just obsessed with "tragedy". Not genuine sadness. Just disaster voyeurism.

PS: Can't someone post another RIP / farm buying thread? Been ages.

"Thoughts & Prayers" / "Never Heard Of Them!" / C&P where applicable.

Darren Bent also chose eleven Leicester players in his team of the week.

They were so brave.

This is beyond cringe levels now.

There'll be a concert in Hyde Park for him soon.

Who will be the person in the public eye brave enough to question the outpouring of grief and sabotage their career in the process?

I hope it's Brady.
