Mourners gather at St. Matthews Church in Worthing, West Sussex, for a memorial service for Stuart and Jason Hill, who were killed alongside Becky Dobson in a helicopter crash in the Grand Canyon.

Their friends, Becky Dobson, 27, her boyfriend Stuart Hill, 30, and his brother Jason Hill, 32, died when the Airbus EC130 B4 crashed shortly before sunset on February 10.

They had also been celebrating Stuart Hill’s 30th birthday with a trip to Las Vegas.

Mrs Udall was a manager for Yorkshire Building Society, where her husband also worked.

The Mohave County Medical Examiner previously said that multiple injuries killed Dobson and the Hill brothers, all originally from Worthing, West Sussex.

Two others – Jennifer Barham, 39, and pilot Scott Booth, 42 – were also treated in hospital.

The helicopter crashed on tribal land in a section of the Grand Canyon outside of the national park where air tours are not as highly regulated.

The cause of the crash is being investigated by the National Transportation Safety Board.

A preliminary report said witnesses saw the helicopter do at least two 360-degree turns before hitting the ground.

Investigators will interview witnesses, survivors, the helicopter operator and manufacturer and others before issuing a full report in at least a year’s time.
