Bob, for reasons unknown, approached the landing area and, at a VERY low altitude, made a 180 degree turn, which caused him to impact the ground at a very high speed. He was in critical condition instantly, picked up by Flight for Life. He was brain dead on the scene. Massive injuries to the head. When they removed life support, he passed away.
