An investigation into the crash that led to the death of Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, the owner of Leicester City has revealed that it was caused by a faulty pedal.
Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) discovered that part in the tail rotor that linked it to the pilot’s controls were disconnected, which led to the helicopter crashing down soon after taking off from the Leicester’s King Power stadium on October 27.
“The initiating cause and exact sequence of the failure that resulted in the loss of tail rotor control is being investigated as a priority,” the report from AAIB indicates.
The safety agency says it is continuing with its investigation into the crash which also claimed the lives of four other people, which includes pilots Eric Swaffer and Izabela Roza Lechowicz.
