Tesla has a surprise reveal for Grand Basel show; is it the production Roadster?The Grand Basel show in Switzerland will play host to a new Tesla reveal, the electric car manufacturer confirmed Friday. Noting the show’s theme, the production version of the Tesla’s second-generation Roadster is the most likely candidate for a debut, unless the company is prepared to show off something truly surprising. CEO Elon Musk pulled a classic Steve Jobs “one more thing” moment during the reveal of the Tesla Semi and surprised with the Roadster concept car last November.

Grand Canyon crash that killed Britons happened on tribal land with fewer aviation regulations

Grand Canyon crash that killed Britons happened on tribal land with fewer aviation regulationsInvestigators are continuing to probe what caused a helicopter to plunge into the Grand Canyon as it emerged that the crash happened on tribal land where air tours are not as highly regulated as those inside the national park itself. Three British tourists died when the helicopter went down on Saturday. They were in Las Vegas to celebrate a birthday and took a helicopter sightseeing tour on the Hualapai reservation. Becky Dobson, 27, her boyfriend Stuart Hill, 30, and his brother, Jason Hill, 32-year-old lawyer died. Three friends and the pilot are in hospital where investigators want to interview them about what went wrong. Unlike the national park, air tours on the Hualapai reservation are not subject to federal regulations that restrict routes, impose curfews and cap the amount of flights over the Grand Canyon each year. The Federal Aviation Administration granted the Hualapai Tribe an exemption 18 years ago after finding that the regulations would harm the tribe's economy where tourism is a major driver. Most of the flights over the reservation originate from Las Vegas, and air tour operators aggressively market them. The pilots can fly between canyon walls and land at the bottom next to the Colorado River on the reservation, which isn't allowed at the park other than for emergency operations. Quartermaster Canyon locator The National Transportation Safety board says it can't say with any certainty yet what caused Saturday's crash. Gary Robb, an attorney who has represented crash victims for almost 40 years, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal it may take investigators as long as nine months to establish the cause of Saturday’s crash. “It’s too early to speculate, but early indications suggest that perhaps heavy gusts could have been a factor that drove the aircraft to strike a wall of the canyon,” he said. “The other possibility is some sort of in-flight mechanical issue, including an engine problem or main rotor blade fracture or defect.

Saturday’s crash was its fourth fatal accident in the past 20 years, claiming eight lives.
