Flights resume after Grand Canyon crash

Flight restrictions put in place in the Grand Canyon after a sightseeing helicopter crashed over the weekend have been lifted, News24 reports.

Three British tourists were killed in Saturday’s crash on tribal land outside the national park.
The pilot and three other Britons were critically injured and taken to a Las Vegas trauma centre.

The Federal Aviation Administration had imposed flight restrictions on part of the Hualapai reservation for any aircraft not involved in rescue and recovery efforts. Those restrictions were lifted late on Tuesday evening, allowing air tours around the crash site to resume.
