A veteran helicopter pilot giving rides at a Pennsylvania town fair was killed after he was hit by the chopper's spinning rotor.
Carl R. Enlow, 69, landed the helicopter at the Bloomsburg Fair grounds Friday to re-fuel and to allow a relief pilot to take over.
He left the chopper and was re-entering to speak to the replacement pilot when he was struck by the rotor, the fair association said.
He was airlifted to a hospital, where he died.
Enlow, of Reading, Pennsylvania, was a former military helicopter pilot, with more than 50 years of flying experience, the fair board said.
He worked as a chiropractor.
