Carl R Enlow was killed by a helicopter rotor at the Bloomsburg Pennsylvania town fair.

Enlow was a former military helicopter pilot who was giving rides. He was struck after his shift, in an accident. He was med-evaced by LifeFlight helicopter to Geisinger Medical Center where he died.

The Heritage Rotors LLC Enstrom F-28C helicopter was standing at the time of the accident, in the parking lot near gate five was in the process of gassing up between rides. Enlow was returning to the helicopter to speak to the next pilot when apparently his hat blew off and he reached for it.

The Bloomsburg Fair Association is donating their profit from the rides to Enlow’s widow, and a memorial fund is being arranged.
