The helicopter flight over the Grand Canyon that ended with the deaths of three Britons was meant to be the highlight of a trip to celebrate the 30th birthday of one of the victims.

Stuart Hill, who turned 30 on Friday, was killed at 5.20pm local time on Saturday alongside his brother Jason, 32, and his girlfriend Becky Dobson, 27, when their sightseeing helicopter dropped into a remot e ravine and burst into flames.

Three friends also on the flight were injured but survived. Ellie Milward, 29, and Jonathan Udall, 32, who married last year, were airlifted with Jennifer Barham, 39, to University Medical Centre in Las Vegas along with Scott Booth, 42, the pilot.
