Kylie Jenner reveals she had flown with the same pilot and in the same helicopter as the one that killed Kobe Bryant Sunday.
Kylie took to her Instagram Monday and said, “rest in peace, and prayers to the these families. I still can’t believe this. That was the helicopter I would fly on from time to time with that pilot, Ara. He was such a nice man.”
Kylie accompanied the quote with a picture of the nine people who passed away in the crash.
The helicopter was en route to Bryant’s Mamba Sports Academy in Thousand Oaks, California, when it crashed around 10am.
The chopper had flown up from Orange County, where Bryant lives, and over to Burbank, California before heading west.

There was extremely dense fog at the time of the incident, which cause the helicopter to fly extremely low.
While the cause of the crash is still under investigation, witnesses say they heard the engine sputtering, leading to the possibility of mechanical failure. The NTSB is currently investigating what went wrong, and it could be a couple months before findings are released.
As Kylie mentioned, we all need to hold our loves ones closer today!
