Country Music Star Troy Gentry Died in a Helicopter Crash, Which is Under Investigation

The helicopter crash that killed Montgomery Gentry singer Troy Gentry is under investigation. Investigators are looking at whether the pilot made the right decisions leading up to the crash.

Both Gentry and the pilot died in the crash, which happened before the Montgomery Gentry concert scheduled in Medford, N.J., on Friday.

The helicopter was experiencing mechanical issues prior to the crash, and the pilot hovered for several minutes before the helicopter crashed. He was waiting for emergency crews to arrive.

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating whether the pilot should have attempted a landing instead of hovering and waiting for assistance.

Other pilots said the that the helicopter pilot had options, though none of them were particularly viable. One pilot said there were beds of water near the crash site and that landing a helicopter in distress in water is safer than hovering above the ground.
