What was supposed to be a milestone for Harvill led to his tragic death. The main star of the Moses Lake Air Show 2021 made the attendees and audience scream in horror after he flew off from his motorbike and sustained injuries.
Unfortunately, the 28-year-old daredevil did not make it.
Following his death, he and his family received outpouring supports to honor the late record holder's last jump.

Alex Harvill's Last Jump Before Crash
On June 17, Harvill finally got the chance to show what he had been practicing for weeks. The record holder aimed to break another world record by trying to drive from a moveable ram before jumping to a 351 feet dirt ramp.
However, he faced tragedy during his first practice when he landed short and flew off from his bike. The medical team on the scene immediately responded before rushing him to Samaritan Hospital. After the incident, the event continued as they prayed for his recovery.
Unfortunately, Harvill did not make it. The Grant County Coroner launched an autopsy on Friday to determine the final cause of his death.
