A YouTube video shows the cockpit of a helicopter that crashed while carrying a bride to her wedding.
Rosemere do Nascimento Silva died in the accident in December, along with the pilot, her brother and a pregnant photographer.
The 32-year-old woman had planned a spectacular entrance to her wedding to surprise her fiancé Udirley Damasceno, who was waiting at the alter.
The chopper crashed a mile from the reception venue in a rural area on the outskirts of São Paulo in Brazil.

The groom was completely unaware of what she was planning to do - or of the fatal air crash - while he waited at the altar.
Police and air crash investigators are still trying to establish what caused the tragedy.

Reports have indicated that it might have hit a tree during bad visibility, owing to rain, fog and cloud.
"All brides have a dream and hers was to arrive by helicopter to their wedding without anyone knowing," Carlos Eduardo Batista, one of the organisers told Brazilian media Globo.
Although there were 300 guests at the wedding, only about six of them knew about the surprise. Following the crash, eight fire engines were called to the scene but nothing could be done to save the four occupants.
The pilot was named as Peterson Pinheiro, and the brother of the bride, Silvano Nascimento da Silva. The pregnant photographer was Nayla Cristina Neves.
The journey to the wedding ceremony should have taken 15 minutes.
