Helikopterpiloten, which - along with Kobe Bryant and seven other passengers crashed in death in January, gave the wrong messages to the control tower.
It is concluded in a recently published report on the incident, which the news agency AP has seen.
There was thick fog, when the pilot Ara Zobayan took off, and it is probably what is to blame for the tragic fatal accident.

Ara Zobayan told over the radio to air traffic controllers that he rose to 1220 meters in altitude to get above the dense clouds which lay as a heavy quilt over and around Los Angeles, but in fact he was directly on the road into a rock wall and toward the earth, saith the investigators in the documents, which were released Wednesday.
All nine on board the helicopter perished - including the retired basketstjerne Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna.
In the report from the National Transportation Safety Board says there were no signs that there has been engine failure or stop. The experts believe that Zobayan may have 'misunderstood' or translated their direction and angle, he flew with. It can happen when a pilot becomes disoriented by the poor visibility.
The hills flysikkerhedsekspert John Cox up on. He says that the way in which the helicopter crashed, clearly suggest that the pilot has become disoriented.
- It is a major cause of accidents. He is not the first who has experienced it, says Cox to the AP.
