26-May-21 VH-KLY Robinson R22 Hay, Australia (1F)

The pilot, the sole occupant on board, was mustering cattle along a fence line on a property 75 km west of Hay, NSW, and had landed to open a gate at the entrance to a yard. Shortly after, a witness heard the helicopter take-off and, very soon after, a loud bang.

Suspecting an accident, the witness drove to the site and found the helicopter on its side, substantially damaged. First aid was rendered to the pilot, however they had sustained fatal injuries.
