Brit named in Israel helicopter crash

    The 43 year-old British man killed in the Netanya helicopter crash has been named as Roberto Arvanitakis.

    The Foreign Office has confirmed that Mr Arvanitakis was a British citizen, but he is believed to have been living in Cyprus.

    The Israelis who were killed in the crash are said to have been showing the British businessman around the Netanya coast when the helicopter malfunctioned. He is believed to have worked in the airline industry.

    The other victims were named as 35 year-old Yoav Tamir from Tel Aviv, the co-owner of Tamir Airways which owned the helicopter.

    Ran Lapid, 49, from Nes Tziona, a pilot for El Al, was flying the helicopter when it crashed. Mr Lapid had regularly flown Boeing 737 planes for El Al, and had served as a helicopter pilot in the army.

    The other passenger, Hadar Shavit, 39, from the town of Lapid, was also a pilot, for Arkia.

    The private helicopter took off from Tel Aviv's Sde Dov airfield and crashed into the sea, 300m from Sironit beach, Netanya.
