Troy Gentry likely knew he was going to die in the minutes leading up to the fatal helicopter crash that claimed his life.

Troy — one-half of the country music duo Montgomery Gentry — hovered for several minutes in the air before his tiny chopper crashed in Medford, New Jersey, according to emergency dispatch audio recordings.

A dispatcher is heard alerting first responders about the situation in the audio clip obtained by The Blast (listen below).

“Apparently he [Gentry] is hovering right now waiting for the fire department to arrive,” the dispatcher said. “Mechanical issues … hovering currently. They are waiting for the fire department to arrive before they attempt a land.”

Gentry, 50, was removed from the helicopter’s passenger seat and taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
