During a flight for a youth basketball game at Kobe Bryants Mamba Sports Academy in Thousand Oaks on January 26, the Sikorsky S-76B crashed in 1991 on a slope near Los Virgenes Road and willow Glen Street in 1991 under heavy fog. On Sunday morning, he, Gianna and the others flew about 78 miles from John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana to his Mamba Academy in Newbury Park, west of the crash site in Calabasas.
