NYC Helicopter Crash Passenger Posted Takeoff Video Minutes Before Going Down
One of the guests who passed away on that helicopter that crashed into NYC’s East River recorded the airplane’s launch and published it minutes prior to they decreased.
Trevor Cadigan(closest to video camera) was taping video as the Eurocopter AS350 took off from a New Jersey heliport. Trevor, and others onboard, provided a thumbs-up and smiled to the video camera. Unfortunately, their flight just lasted 11 minutes.
As we reported, the chopper crashed Sunday and knocked down into the river, eliminating all 5 guests. The pilot, Richard Vance, was the only survivor.

Vance informed private investigators a guest’s bag may have struck an emergency situation fuel shut-off button, triggering the chopper to lose power and ultimately crash. The NTSB is examining.
