In a tweet, Stuart wrote, "I went to Jr. High School a few miles from where Kobe Bryant's helicopter went down. Those mountains are the same ones from the opening sequence of the MASH tv show."
He added: "The 101 freeway rises into them. God help even the finest pilot using that freeway to visually navigate in fog."

So sad. Still so heartbreaking 🙏💔I didn’t know those were the mountains in the opening sequence of MASH.— Debbie Riccio (@DebraJoRiccio) January 29, 2020

I also read this was the only pilot Kobe felt safe flying him. Clearly he knew what he was doing. Unfortunately, shit happens. Tragedies happen.— Stefanye (@StefsTweeting) January 29, 2020
That hits way too close to home😥. Such a tragedy... heartbreaking for all involved. I can't even begin to imagine the pain💔💔. I'm not sure how one recovers from this.— Jody Jackson (@JodygirlJac) January 29, 2020

Oh goodness. The officials said the area was remote but I had no idea! 💔💔💔— Sara (@sara_freeman1) January 29, 2020
Something so beautiful becomes so haunting...💔— JMG208 (@JMoiraG) January 29, 2020
Know that area very well and, sadly, you are so dead-on-target.— Matthew Diestel (@MatthewDiestel) January 29, 2020
They missed clearing the mountains by 20 feet! The chopper was missing a terrain warning system.— Malti_Sharma (@Malti_Sharma) January 29, 2020
I went to A. E. Wright, too. My childhood home was a mile from that crash site. The fog there is so bad. 😓— LA (@soleilani) January 29, 2020
I thought the same thing regarding the terrain. It’s so heartbreaking.— Tina Moore (@TMoore8114) January 29, 2020
Fate is fate. I played a part in pulling a man from a frozen river behind the factory I was working in. We got him out, gave him 1st Aid til 911 came. He was fine for 3 months, then died of a heart attack riding his bicycle. When it's your turn, it's your turn. Live each day.— GraceM1959 (@M1959Grace) January 29, 2020
