Unfortunately 5 photographers perished in a helicopter crash in NYC yesterday. They were flying with a company called FlyNYON. All the photographers were harnessed in which made it impossible for them to get out alive.

This is extremely sad and scary. If you decide to fly in a helicopter please take all safety precautions as you can. Make sure you know what to do in case of a crash and consider using just the safety belt.

The flight was opperated by Liberty Helicopters and chartered by FlyNYON

Update “NYONAir is terribly saddened to acknowledge that its customers were passengers on the Liberty Helicopters flight that went down in the East River last night. We extend our deepest sympathies to the family members and loved ones of those involved in this tragic event. NYONAir is fully cooperating with the FAA and NTSB in their investigation and those agencies should be referred to for any further information.”
